A few of my other pumpkin desserts are Pumpkin Hazelnut White Chocolate Biscotti, Pumpkin Butterscotch Bars and Pumpkin Spiced Snickerdoodles.

These cookies are chewy, soft and sweet to perfection. But I must warn you, these cookies can be really addicting. If it’s hard to stop at just one or two, make sure you have family or friends to share these with!

I promise I’ll make more desserts with apples soon, I love apples with all my heart and even plan on going apple picking soon but right now I’m on a pumpkin roll and it’s hard to stop. I’m sure I will be all pumpkin’d out real soon!

This recipe doesn’t call for a lot of pumpkin puree, so if you have any leftover puree from another pumpkin recipe, save it for these yummy cookies! If you can’t find pumpkin puree or canned pumpkin (same thing by the way) in the supermarket, make your own, it’s super easy!

A fabulous Fall pumpkin spiced chocolate chip cookie! This is what happens when you take the Best Low Fat Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe and swap out the apple sauce for pumpkin puree, then add lots of pumpkin pie spice!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Line two cookie sheets with non-stick silicone baking liners such as Silpats (I highly recommend for best results) or lightly spray cookie sheets with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, salt and pumpkin spice; stir to blend.
  • In another bowl, whisk the sugars, butter, egg white, pumpkin puree and vanilla together until light and fluffy.
  • Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in two additions until the batter is very well blended.
  • If the batter looks more “crumbly” than smooth, add just a drop of water at a time (ONLY if needed) until it smooths out.
  • Drop by level spoonfuls about 1 inch apart onto baking sheets.
  • Bake 8 - 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, and let them stand 5 minutes before removing the cookies from the pans to cool on wire racks.

Notes

Makes 2 dozen cookies.

  1. Can this recipe be converted to gluten free?  Could gluten free 1 for 1 flour be used for all the pastry and all purpose flour here?

    I love the idea of this recipe but I need it gluten free.  I have many GF flours so I’m open to suggestions if you have some

  2. My honest opinion, if it wasn’t for the pumpkin pie spice, which is weird with the chocolate chips, you would think that it was just another chocolate chip recipe. You really don’t notice the pumpkin flavor.

  3. These cookies are incredible!  It’s hard to only eat one. 

  4. I loved these! Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite and I enjoyed the addition of the pumpkin. I didn’t have whole wheat pastry flour at the time. Instead I used a bit of whole wheat flour and regular app flour.

  5. Made this today – delicious flavor! I used my fresh pumpkin and my first batch was too wet. The cookies are very flat but, still taste great. The second batch I used an extra 1/2 cup of flour and let the mixture rest and the cookies are excellent. I would recommend if you use fresh pumpkin, to increase flour by 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup.

  6. Is there any need for altitude adjustments?

  7. Just made these. Gina I love you!!! Last week I made the low fat chocolate chip cookies and they were divine too. I'm addicted to your amazing recipes and blog!

  8. I made them with brown rice flour and they were really tasty and baked quite well.

  9. Gina, the extra pumpkin puree can be put in ice cube trays and freeze over night, then put them in freezer bags. Same goes for tomato paste, any sauces and broths. Works great.

  10. Can I use Parchment paper instead of Silpat?

  11. Just made these this a.m. for my daughters' lunchboxes. DELICOUS! Yes, I ate 2…how can I resist! I've made about 50 of Gina's recipe…I have to say that I think I am a skinnytaste addict…I check here first for anything I am thinking of making. There has not been one bad recipe and by that I mean they have all been FANTASTIC! I have the crockpot turkey meatballs in MY lunchbox. Thanks, Gina!

  12. I made these with white chocolate chips too and they are amazing both ways!
