I originally posted this Easy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe in 2008, when I’d only been blogging a few months. At the time, I was craving dessert but wanted one that was lower in calories and fat.

I came across this recipe, one I had saved but never made. The recipe was given to me by a neighbor and it’s slightly adapted from a Weight Watchers recipe.

Easy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe Notes

These pumpkin cookies are only 92 calories, and it would have been a good choice if I hadn’t eaten so many. All the cookies were gone by the next day and no one seemed to miss the fat. It’s a soft, cakey cookie and I thought they were better tasting the second day. They were more tender and soft.

The pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are made from a boxed cake mix. My grocery store didn’t have a spice cake mix when I remade them to update this post, so I bought and use a carrot cake mix instead. It was a fun addition and you can see the little bits of “carrot” in the cookies.

If you want to make a more traditional pumpkin chocolate chip recipe, I’ve also posted my sister’s favorite Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. Or go for a really decadent dessert and make Jocelyn’s Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Donuts!
