OK, so Ö Iíll be up front and tell you that this really isnít a healthy dessert. But I love making these on weekends or holidays and those can be cheat days, right?

 

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
Save Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup margarine, at room temperature
  • 1/2 brown sugar
  • 1/2 granulated sugar
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup non-dairy semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix brown and granulated sugars until creamed. Add pumpkin, vanilla and apple sauce and mix well.
  2. Add dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Fold in chocolate chip and walnuts, if using.
  3. On a greased pan, place flattened cookie dough at the size of your preference. I made 12 large cookies, as photographed. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until they look dry - but try not to burn the bottom.
  4. Let sit until cooled. Enjoy!

replace the margarine with flax seed egg replacer and it's a healthier cookie! 1 cup of fresh pumpkin puree is high in fiber, vitamin a, vitamin c, potassium, and so on. non dairy dark chocolate chips are high in minerals like magnesium and iron :) and anyone avoiding sugar could use blackstrap molasses which is high in calcium and other minerals These cookies look delicious either way!
