Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

2013-10-21 22.21.04HELLO readers! Oh, how I’ve missed you so. I sincerely apologize for my brief absence; this week was the last of the current term in my Master’s program, and, needless to say, I spent the majority of it frantically finishing up final projects, presentations and classroom observations. Of course, I did what I do best to manage the stress: cooked through the crazy! There was, however, not a single spare moment to write to y’all about my triumphs in the kitchen.

BUT, that’s all changed now. I’ve got a nice long break from classes ahead of me, so I’m back and ready to share with you some truly awesome recipes! I mean really, I have outdone myself. But, first, I want to share the health(ier) baking recipe I promised a while back. There are the moistest and cakiest cookies I have produced in quite some time, AND I made them without butter and using homemade applesauce instead of oil! Needless to say, they were a huge hit. And so, ladies and gentlemen, I present:

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup homemade applesauce
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp milk
  • 1 TB vanilla
  • 1 11oz bag chocolate chips

2013-10-21 22.09.27Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine pumpkin, sugar, applesauce, and egg in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt. Dissolve the baking soda with the milk and stir into the wet ingredients. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix well. Stir for about one minute. Add vanilla and chocolate chips and stir until combined.

Namas-tasty!
