Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin Desserts & Baked Goods

These healthy pumpkin chocolate chip cookies will wow you! They are everything you want in a chocolate chip cookie and more with pumpkin too!

This recipe for pumpkin cookies is made with simple ingredients and can be made very easily in one bowl — you just mix everything together into your dough!

If you follow me on Instagram then you know that pumpkin season is year round for me! If there’s one pumpkin recipe you should be having year round, it’s this one! And maybe my better than starbucks pumpkin bread!

There is truly no wrong time for a classic chocolate chip cookie and my little pumpkin spin on them adds texture and nutrition to each bite! The flaky sea salt is like the exclamation point on these cookies and I highly recommend that you do not skip it.

In this recipe I used almond and coconut flour, which makes them gluten free. There is also no dairy in this cookie recipe. Be sure your chocolate chips are dairy free if you’re looking for this recipe to be strictly dairy free.

Cookies are one of my favorite things to bake. Maybe because most are fairly easy, or maybe because the end result is always so good?! I feel like I should add “love” to this ingredients list because I truly believe that everything you cook and bake needs to have a little bit of love put into it — the hard work and thoughtfulness that goes into making something always shines through in the final product. 🙂

  1. Made these today and they were delicious! They were the right amount of sweet and the texture was soft and chewy. I couldn’t believe how quick and easy they were to make. I definitely plan to make them again and to share with friends 🙂
