Fall is the season for Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING! Here is an easy homemade recipe that you can enjoy guilt free. This is my recipe for perfectly soft & chewy pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies without being too cakey. They are loaded with Superfoods so they are both healthy and delicious!

Superfood Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil (where to buy)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (substitute with coconut sugar or maple syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 can of organic pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of collagen hydrolysate (where to buy)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Turmeric Powder (where to buy)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk the melted butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together until no brown sugar lumps remain. Whisk in the vanilla and pumpkin until smooth. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and turmeric. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together with a large spoon or rubber spatula. The dough will be very soft.  Fold in 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips. They may not stick to the dough because of the melted butter, but do your best to have them evenly dispersed in the dough. Cover the dough and chill for 30 minutes, or up to 3 days. Chilling is mandatory.
  3. Take the dough out of the refrigerator. Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  4. Roll the dough into balls, about 1.5 Tablespoons of dough each. Slightly flatten the dough balls because the cookies will only slightly spread in the oven. Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes. The cookies will look very soft and underbaked. Keeping them in the oven for longer may dry them out.  Remove from the oven and press a few more chocolate chips onto the tops, if desired.  If you find that your cookies didn’t spread much at all, flatten them out when you take them out of the oven.
  5. Allow the cookies to cool for at least 10 minutes on the cookie sheets before transferring to a wire rack.  The longer the cookies cool, the chewier they will be. I let them sit out for at least 1 hour before enjoying.  I find that their chewiness and pumpkin flavor is more prominent on day two.
  6. Make ahead tip: Cookies stay fresh covered at room temperature for up to 1 week. You can make the cookie dough and chill it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.2 Allow to come to room temperature and continue with step 3. Baked cookies freeze well up to three months. Unbaked cookie dough balls freeze well up to three months. Bake frozen cookie dough balls for an extra minute, no need to thaw.

This cookie recipe combines pumpkin, spices and sweet chocolate chips and gets a superfood kick from the Turmeric and Gelatin/Collagen Hydrolysate to give an added nutritional boost.
