Pumpkin Chia Chocolate Chip Cookies

pumpkin choc chip

It seems that I try a different pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe every year (thanks to Pinterest) and I tried a recipe last week that is calling me, begging me, to make a second batch very soon. Like today. Or tomorrow…I’m also waiting for a baby, so whichever one comes first.

Pumpkin Chia Chocolate Chip Cookies
{my new favorite}

1 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup water or milk
1/2 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
1/4 cup sugar or 12 drops liquid stevia
1/2 cup oil or butter (I use coconut oil)
2 chia “eggs” (for one “egg”, mix 1 T ground chia seeds w/ 3 T water, let gel and then add)
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
 
Instructions:
 
Mix wet ingredients (including pumpkin) in large bowl.  Stir together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and baking soda in smaller bowl. Add dry ingredients slowly to wet ingredients & mix well.  Add chocolate chips and stir until well combined. 
 
  1. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a baking sheet (also works well baked inside mini muffin tins!) Bake at 350* for 9-10 minutes. Let cool on pan for 2-3 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool entirely. Store in a sealed container…if they last that long 🙂
