Everyone loves the classic chocolate chip cookie.  I decided to make it even better by adding pumpkin and spices!  This treat is perfect for the fall season 🙂 Did I mention they’re full of protein as well?  Yes, I used Kodiak Cakes!  Another interesting fact about these cookies is that they contain no eggs!  The pumpkin puree acts as a binder, just like an egg would.  Feel free to eat all the raw cookie dough you want!

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • With an electric mixture, beat butter, brown sugar, and coconut sugar until fluffy.
  • Add vanilla and pumpkin puree and mix together until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, mix Kodiak Cakes, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and salt.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients in about 3 increments, mixing after each addition.
  • Add mini chocolate chips and mix until just combined.
  • Roll dough into balls (about 1 inch thick) and place on a cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cookies are just puffy and are still a little doughy. (you can cook them for longer, but I like my cookies soft!)
  • Remove them from the oven and let sit for a minute or two, then carefully remove and place on a cooling rack. (I say carefully because when they’re still doughy they will fall apart!  Once they are cooled, they’ll be nice and soft.
  • Enjoy!
