Gluten-Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin meets chocolate in this delicious seasonal cookie recipe and it’s a match made in heaven! One thing I really love about this recipe is how easy it is! Also, simple enough to get the kids in the kitchen baking with you! You can have a batch whipped up, baked and ready to eat within 30 minutes. 

Baking with pumpkin adds a lot of moisture to recipes, so the results you’ll get are an extra soft, almost cake-like cookie.

Ingredients You’ll Need to Make These Pumpkin Cookies

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Pumpkin Puree. *not canned pumpkin pie filling! If using homemade, be sure to strain any extra liquid.
  • Oil
  • Egg
  • Pure Vanilla Extract
  • Sugar. I used a combination of brown sugar and granulated sugar.
  • Flour. Use your favorite gluten-free all purpose flour. I used King Arthur Measure for Measure.
  • Baking Soda & Baking Powder
  • Spices. Salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves-oh my! Or pumpkin pie spice works too!
  • Chocolate Chips. Use dairy-free here if needed.

How to Make this Yummy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

  1. Mix together the wet ingredients in a stand mixer. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
  2. Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture.
  3. Blend until everything is well combined.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop the dough onto baking sheets leaving a good amount of space between each. Use a cookie scoop to help make more uniform cookies. If you prefer flatter cookies, press the dough down slightly before baking.
  6. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the edges are set and golden.
