Every year, around September/October, I like to go through my cookbooks and find inspiration for a fall recipes that usually involves pumpkin. 

This year, I uncovered a Betty Crocker Fall Baking mini cookbook from 2007 that had pumpkin cookies and immediately the light bulbs went off. That is how these Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies were born.

I took the idea for pumpkin cookies, added my homemade pumpkin spice along with some chocolate chunks and the result was a chewy cookie that my little sis said tastes just as good as an enjoy life one!

Let’s Talk Ingredients for these Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

The ingredients for these cookies are quote simple and similar to what you would use in a regular chocolate chip cookie, with the addition of:

Pumpkin Puree: You want pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling. We use out homemade recipe which may seem daunting, but making pumpkin puree is much easier than you think. Check out the recipe here.

Pumpkin Pie Spice: The addition of the spice gives these cookies are real fall flavour that is so good. Like the pumpkin puree we use our homemade blend.

With these additions you can take a simple chocolate chip cookie and turn it into a new fall creation, which will become a favourite too!
