How to make a healthier pumpkin cookie

For the party we are attending, my daughter suggested baking and bringing Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.

These cookies provide the perfect seasonal twist. I used pumpkin for one stick of butter and whole wheat flour instead of white flour for healthy swaps. These heavenly cookies turned out moist and delicious!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie


  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • ½ 15-ounce can of pure pumpkin
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • Baking spray


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine all ingredients.

Bake for 12-14 minutes.
