If anyone knows me truly, they’ll know I am not a cookie person. I don’t crave them typically ever- UNTIL October hits! Come October, and I just have to make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies! This year though, I added oatmeal to them as well and it was a smashing hit!
Typically, I use my moms recipe, and it is perfection! So I was a titch nervous to branch out and try a new recipe, but fortunately it was really good!
The cookies were soft and yummy!
There’s something about pumpkin desserts that just bring fall in to your home! No matter what time of year, it just gives you that warm and cozy feeling!
Do any of you have a fall treat you like to make every year? I’d love to hear what y’all do!
The recipe I used is this;
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
- Prep Time: 15 minutes
- Cook Time: 13 minutes
- Total Time: 30 minutes
- Makes: 30 cookies
- 2 cups + 1 Tablespoon (258g) all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice*
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 and 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
- 3 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 3/4 cup packed light or dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 and 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
- Whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and oats together in a large bowl. Set aside.
- Whisk the melted butter, maple syrup, brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg yolk, blotted pumpkin, and vanilla extract together until combined. Pour into dry ingredients and mix everything together until completely combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
- Scoop cookie dough, and place 3 inches apart on the baking sheets. Flatten slightly. Bake for 12-13 minutes or until lightly browned on the sides. The centers will look very soft.
- Remove from the oven and allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Let me know if y’all make these and what you thought!!!
