Soft pumpkin chocolate chip cookies that are easy to make and are absolutely DELICIOUS. This is the best pumpkin chocolate chip cookies recipe I’ve found.
Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are one of the best treats about the changing of seasons from summer to fall.
I absolutely LOVE fall. Cinnamon scented pinecones start showing up at the grocery store, there’s a crispness to the air, and pumpkins and pumpkin recipes start coming out in full force.
One of my favorite recipes to start the season with is my cakey pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.
My Mom found this recipe in a newspaper many years ago, and made them every year for us beginning at the end of September. I always looked forward to these cookies.
These are more cakey than chewy pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. Luckily, these are also very easy pumpkin chocolate chip cookies to throw together with ingredients you most likely already have in your cupboards.
I love the addition of oatmeal to this recipe. I guess I can consider the cookies somewhat healthy – there is oatmeal in them – Yay!
Pumpkin, oatmeal and chocolate chips. Too yummy.
