Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Boy oh boy do I have a yummy recipe to share with you today! I’ve been seeing recipes floating around that include chocolate and pumpkin and I have to be honest, at first it raised my eyebrows a bit. My first thought was, “Would those two ingredients go well together?”


I’m here to tell you YES THEY DO! These cookies were so good! A little too good, actually. Like, I didn’t trust myself to be alone in a room with them good. They were so soft and cakey, there is no way you could have just one.


My kids went berserk for them! A perfect after school snack or treat for your kiddos lunchbox. In fact I just stuck one in C’s lunch this morning!

I’m telling you…you must try this recipe!
