Pumpkin Bread Cookies

Pumpkin Desserts & Baked Goods

Pumpkin bread cookies are moist and fluffy and each bite resembles a bite of pumpkin bread! These cookies are low in sugar, made with whole wheat flour and dairy free. You can add chocolate chips or white chocolate chips to make them extra delicious!

Super moist and fluffy, these pumpkin cookies that taste like a bite of pumpkin bread are the best of both worlds! Made with nourishing ingredients like pumpkin puree and whole-wheat flour, and lower in sugar than you’re typical cookie, you can feel good knowing these cookies are a more nutritious treat!

I could truly eat pumpkin bread any time of year and am often baking up another iteration of pumpkin bread with new ingredients or toppings like this pumpkin zucchini bread! If you’re on this site or following me on Instagram I’m betting you can too!

Pumpkin bread cookies are the best of both worlds and sensible portion size if you’re not in the mood to bake an entire loaf of bread! I just love how pillowy, soft and fluffy they are! They’re definitely the opposite of a thin and crispy cookie (which reminds me, it’s probably time to create a thin and crispy pumpkin cookie recipes too!). Leave a comment on this post if you want a thin and crispy cookie to be next too!

I know you’ll love how easy it is to make these cookies and how delicious they taste even after a few days have gone by. As you can see with this batch, I used white chocolate chips, but you can definitely use regular or dark chocolate chips too.
