We are officially into October and there are pumpkins everywhere! I am a huge pumpkin fan, so these cookies made my heart so happy! They are so simple to make and the flavors are awesome. Very similar to a pumpkin chocolate chip bread, just in a cookie form! I have had this recipe for a long time and bring it out at the start of fall every year. Beware- I eat a dozen myself last time I made these! Make some heart happy and surprise them with a bag of these little nuggets from heaven!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup Butter Room Temperature

1 egg

2 cups brow sugar (packed)

1 cup white sugar

1 can pumpkin purée (15 oz.)

4 cup whole wheat flour (white is ok)

2 cup oats

1 Tablespoon Vanilla

1 Tablespoons Cinnamon

2 Tablespoons Baking Soda

1 Tablespoon Baking Powder

1 bag Ghirardelli Chocolate Chips of choice. I prefer a darker chocolate.

Pinch of Salt

Instructions:

1. First preheat your oven to 375 degrees

2. Add the butter, sugar, egg, vanilla and pumpkin together and cream this mixture.

3. Add all dry ingredients to a bowl and mix together. Slowly add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients.

4. Add chocolate chips and give one last mix.

5. Using a small cookie scoop, arrange scooped mixture 2 inches apart on a parchment lined cookie sheet. These cookies tend to stay small and do not spread.

6. Bake for 8 minutes in a 375 degree oven and then cook on a cooling rack.

Enjoy!
