- Pumpkin puree (you can use homemade or canned, NOT a pumpkin pie mix)

- Unrefined brown sugar
- Sunflower oil
- Pure vanilla extract

- Ground nutmeg
- Baking powder, baking soda and salt
As always, you can find the full recipe with a list of ingredients with measurements in a printable recipe card at the end of this post.

How to make pumpkin chocolate chip cookies from scratch?
- Mix dry ingredients
First, preheat the oven to 350°F / 176°C and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a big bowl mix spelt flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- Mix wet ingredients
Next, in a separate bowl, whisk pumpkin puree, oil, vanilla extract, and water.
- Make the batter
Then, add wet ingredients into the bowl with dry ingredients. Lightly mix everything together. Make sure to not overmix the batter. After that, gently fold in chocolate chips.
- Form cookies and bake
To form a cookie, drop approximately 2 tablespoon at a time onto a prepared baking sheet spaced 2 inches apart. Because the mixture will be sticky use your fingers to flatten it slightly and form a round shape around the edges. Press extra chocolate chips on top if you like.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden. They will be a bit tender while still warm.
Transfer on a wire rack and let them cool completely.
Enjoy your flavorful pumpkin cookies with a glass of milk for breakfast, after-lunch dessert, or a tasty snack throughout the day.
Store any leftovers (make sure they are completely cool) in a loosely covered container, at room temperature for up to 3-4 days. I must mention that the flavor is even better the next day. This makes them an excellent make-ahead dessert recipe.
These delicately spiced cookies will last for 3-4 days at room temperature or up to 7 days in the fridge. Though I doubt they can last that long 🙂 Make sure that you always store homemade cookies after they are completely cooled. If you store them while still warm they'll lose their texture and will become soggy.
Absolutely! You can use both fresh pumpkin flesh (blended or mashed with a fork) or canned pumpkin puree. Be sure to buy pure pumpkin puree, not a pumpkin pie filling because it's already sweetened and flavored with spices.
Yes, this recipe for cozy pumpkin cookies is vegan-friendly. These beautifully textured sweet treats will undoubtedly satisfy everyone's sweet tooth this season and beyond!
