  • Yield: 48 cookies 1x


Pass the milk and load up on a few chewy chocolate chip cookies with pumpkin. You won’t be able to resist gobbling these up.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir together flour, oats, flax seed, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Using a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar on medium speed until fluffy. Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  4. Turn off the mixer and add 1/2 of the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture. Combine on low speed. Repeat with the remaining flour mixture. Turn off mixer and gently fold in the chocolate chips, using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon.
  5. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets. You should be able to fit 12 cookies on each. Chill the baking sheets for 15 minutes.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. Let cool on the sheet pans for about 1 minute, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Repeat measuring dough, chilling, and baking with the remaining dough.
  7. Store in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
