Pumpkin Season and A Good Shoulder Workout

Hey everybody!

Now I know that it’s only August, but anybody else have cravings for pumpkin? I do! I love pumpkin everything so I decided to share my favourite pumpkin cookie recipe with you! I got it from Pinterest but changed it a little bit to make it my own! It’s not the healthiest recipe, but it’s also not the worst!


1 Cup Pumpkin Puree

1 Egg

2 Tablespoons Cinnamon

1 Tablespoon Nutmeg

1  Tablespoon Pumpkin Spice

1 tsp Baking Soda

2 Cups Flour

1 Cup Sugar

1 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips (But I really I just dump the bag upside down until the amount looks good to me 😉

1/2 Cup Oil

1 tsp Milk

1 tsp Vanilla

  1. Set oven to 375 degrees
  2. Mix oil, sugar, pumpkin, vanilla, and egg in one bowl until smooth.
  3. Mix flour and all spices together in a bowl. In a small bowl, dissolve the baking soda with the milk. Add both the dry flour mixture and the wet baking soda mixture to the pumpkin mixture. Mix well.
  4. Add chocolate chips (as many your little heart desires 😉
  5. Using a spoon (cookie scooper if you have one) to scoop equal mounds of cookie dough onto baking sheet.
  6. Cook for 8-10 minutes!

These cookies should come out big and fluffy! They are so delicious! Last time I made them Cody ate 8 in one night…
