An easy-to-make 3 ingredient pumpkin chocolate chip cookie. These Easy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies come together in a flash.
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.
I came across this recipe 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.
The 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.
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.
Easy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 box spice or carrot cake mix – dry
- 1 15 oz. can pumpkin puree
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350º. In a large mixing bowl, mix together cake mix and pumpkin just until blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
Using a small cookie scoop, drop by rounded scoops on to greased or parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake for 12 minutes, until edges and center are set, but still soft in center.
Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool.
