Scare Up a Bunch of Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies 

Did you know pumpkin is a superfood?

I love fall, and nothing is more fall-like than pumpkins – specifically pumpkin-baked goodies! I love this simple pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe because it’s so easy and is the perfect treat for after school or to pop into a lunch box. Pumpkin is also a superfood, so there’s added comfort knowing that these also are good for you.  

This recipe is great to make with kids; you don’t even need a mixer; everything can be mixed in one bowl, making clean-up a breeze. Make sure to purchase 100% pumpkin puree. I hope you bake and love these cookies are much as I do. Stay Sweet!
