To add pumpkin to everything! Fall foods are a big hit in our home. One fall treat idea I was introduced to was by a friend posting she was making pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. What an awesome idea! I immediately looked to make some gluten free pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.
Here is what I came up with…
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 or 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup coconut flour or 2 cups regular flour
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 3/4 or 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Add all ingredients except chocolate chips to your mixer ( I used my Ninja).
Pour batter from mixer into a bowl. Add chocolate chips and stir into batter.
Scoop dough onto cookie sheet. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes.
FYI: The coconut flour does not hold together as well as regular flour, so they will break apart easily.
