Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yup. Cookies. They're all over the bloggersphere right now, and all over my brain. Darius and I have been baking, cooking, and creating in the kitchen and I have to share! This recipe was requested by one of my sweet cousins who travelled in this past weekend, and so Natalie, I hope you enjoy making these for Calvin!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup earth balance

1cup honey

1 cup pumpkin puree
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder1/3 tsp salt
1tbsp cinnamon
2 cups fresh ground whole wheat flour*

3/4 cup oats

3/4 cup desiccated unsweetened coconut
3/4 cup dark chocolate


first, cream the earth balance [it is a vegan substitute for butter. If you want to use butter you can do so] then add the honey and continue to cream the mixture together.

second, add the pumpkin to the creamy mixture, and puree together.

Now, add all the rest of the ingredients, one at a time [pulse the mix in between additions to ensure thorough mixing of the dough] finishing with the chocolate chips.

bake in a preheated 350*F oven for 10 minutes. The cookies will look a little soft, but once on the cooling rack they set up quite nicely.

Enjoy these healthy treats with your family - or hoard them for yourself - and enjoy the sweetness of the holiday season!

What is your favourite holiday treat? Does it stem from great memories, or is it a recent discovery?
350F for 10minutes
