Coconut oil, chocolate chip pumpkin cookies : )

Are you guys sick of pumpkin talk around here? No?… GOOD ;-) What goes with pumpkin during the fall? CHOCOLATE. Oh yea. Such a good combo. Chocolate chip pumpkin protein ballsmuffins.. pancakes.. They just go hand in hand. I absolutely love homemade chocolate chip cookies. The dough is my favorite. My mom always saved me some to eat. I wanted to make my homemade chocolate chip cookies and add some of the pumpkin.. and they turned out awesome! Warm, dense, a hint of chocolate, hint of the cookie and a taste of fall from the pumpkin.  Perfect sunday afternoon baking adventure and have them ready for Monday’s coffee green tea for now!

Anyways. It’s pretty simple. Just adding the pumpkin for that fall touch is a game changer.


  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp almond milk
  • 1 TB vanilla
  • 1- 1 & 1/2 cups of chocolate chips.. the more the merrer.


  • Combine your pumpkin, sugar,  coco oil, and egg in a large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt.
  • Dissolve the baking soda with the milk and stir into the wet ingredients.
  • Add your  flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix well. {Stir for about one minute}
  • Add vanilla and chocolate chips last! Stir until combined and creamy : )
  • Spay cookie sheet with oil { I use coco oil }
  • Spoon out cookies, I like to use this guy. It helps!
  • Bake at 350 for 10 minutes
