Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Its that time of year! Pumpkin everything! And this recipe is on repeat in my house. These cookies are so delicious and there is no added sugar. Well there is if you add chocolate chips but those don't even really count right?

I cannot take credit for this recipe. I got it from one of my best friends and her mom. Every time I make these cookies I think of snuggles and giggles and the special bond that the two of them share. These are the recipes that mean the most to me. You know that ones that make you reflect on life and remember what really matters... like friends and family! To me that is what fall represents! I should rename this recipe to Friends and Family Cookies!

This is one of those recipes that fills your house with the most amazing smells and fills your soul with joy! I love nothing more than opening up the oven and letting all of the coziness out into the kitchen. I recommend grabbing a cup of coffee and a warm blanket to pair with these!

I am going to share the original recipe with you (her moms) but these are super easy to make gluten free just by using GF flour. I have made them both and love them just the same either way!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

1 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce
3/4 Cup Mashed Pumpkin
1 Egg
1 1/4 Cups Flour (substitute gluten free if desired)
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2- 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 Teaspoon Allspice
1/8 Teaspoon Salt
1/8 Teaspoon Nutmeg

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix applesauce and pumpkin together. Combine all other ingredients and add it to the pumpkin mixture. Place large spoonfuls of batter onto a baking sheet lined with a silpat. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Cookie Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Fall is in the air and I am feelin' these vibes! I have pumpkin spice on the mind 24/7! I know, I know... basic B! But come on, its just so fun! Since I cant flavor everything with pumpkin I figured I would have some fun with other fall flavors! Insert cookie butter! I mean who doesn't love cookie butter!

I'm a huge fan of oatmeal cookies and would typically add peanut butter but I had to add a fun twist so I decided to substitute it with cookie butter and I am so glad that I did. I think you will be happy too!

Cookie Butter Oatmeal Cookies-

1 1/4 Cups Flour
1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup White Sugar
1 Stick Unsalted Butter (softened)
2 Large Eggs
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup Cookie Butter
1 Cup Oats

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, and baking soda. In a stand mixer cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat the egg, vanilla extract, and cookie butter into this mixture. Add the flour mixture until just combined. Fold in the oats. Roll 1 1/2 inch balls of dough (this is a sticky dough, dont be alarmed) and place them on a baking sheet lined in parchment paper or a silpat about two inches apart. Bake for 10-12 min. 


P.S.- these pair perfectly with a cup of coffee. Be sure to add pumpkin pie spice to your coffee grounds prior to brewing! Ok, I am done with the pumpkin now! I promise!
