Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies – Lower-Calorie, WW Friendly
Pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies are perfect for the Fall season. Simple and delicious recipe.
September is here in full swing and everything pumpkin has officially made its appearance. From lattes to cereal, and from salsa to chips. I’ve seen it all, including pasta! I’ve learned if a recipe can be made with pumpkin spice flavor it’s probably been done. One of my favorite ways to treat myself to pumpkin spice is making these pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies. They are super addictive and everyone I’ve given them to has loved them. As a result, I have happy pumpkin spice lovers.
What is pumpkin spice?
Pumpkin spice is a blend of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and allspice. Pumpkin spice blends vary so they are not the same everywhere you go.
The best part is it doesn’t get much easier than this recipe because these cookies are made using only 3 ingredients. The base is made from a spice cake mix, a can of pumpkin purée and some chocolate chips. Mix all three ingredients together, and that’s the cookie dough!
Since the cookies are made using a cake mix, the results are a soft, fluffy texture. They’re the perfect comforting Fall treat and the chocolate chips giving the cookies that extra chocolatey wow factor. Great for any holiday get together, or just because. They went pretty quickly in my house with requests to make more, so of course I had to!
To get nice uniform cookies, I used a cookie scoop which made it easy to measure the cookie dough out evenly. I also baked them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper so there’s no need to grease the cookie sheet.
A tip to making the cookies look a little fancier is to reserve some of the chocolate chips that go in the dough mix. After the cookies are all scooped onto the cookie sheets, top each one with a few chocolate chips. This is the best way to see the chocolate chips in the cookies and it makes them pop a bit more.
