Pumpkin Chia Chocolate Chip Cookies

It seems that I try a different pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe every year (thanks, Pinterest!) and I created 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 whatever happens first).

And these seriously taste like donuts…that dense cake-doughnut texture…yep, this is it. All with the pumpkin spice flavors and chocolate chip goodness…they are just SO GOOD.

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)
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 🙂
