ingredients for Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies begin with butter, butter and honey whipped until smooth and light.  With nutty whole wheat flour, real pumpkin puree, ample pumpkin spices, and a chocolate nudge, they aren’t overly sweet. They get a finishing sweetness after baking, when they’re brushed with a maple syrup coconut oil glaze.

When I bite into one–up come memories of the pumpkin cookies my grandmother used to make. She would have loved these, especially with the chocolate addition!

  • Do you think the butter could be exchanged for either olive oil or coconut oil? Reply · 20 September, 2017

    • Caron, I haven’t tested the cookies with oil, but I have the ingredients to try it this week! Will let you know! Reply · 20 September, 2017

      • Caron, I made these tonight with avocado oil to much success. Also, they were much easier, as they did not require a mixer. I whisked the egg, oil,and honey in a bowl. Then whisked in pumpkin puree, followed by the flour mixture. I whisked until everything was well incorporated,and then stirred in the chocolate chips. I let the batter sit about 10 minutes before scooping. Reply · 24 September, 2017

  • Very healthy and delicious recipe! Can I use normal salt instead of sea salt? Reply · 23 September, 2017

    • Yes, you can use normal salt. I did a taste test of regular salt against sea salt and there is a flavor difference. I think regular salt has a harsher taste. I use Real Salt, mined from an ancient sea bed in Utah. Reply · 23 September, 2017
