Those delicious mildly sweet pumpkin chocolate chip cookies were born while I was playing around with my Soft Gingerbread Cookies, which I created last year. Since they are only slightly gingered, I definitely would not call them gingerbread cookies. Instead, those pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are all about fall flavours and therefore perfect for the cold and dark nights.
Since I decided to halve the batter, you’re actually getting 2-in-1 with my pumpkin chocolate chip cookies recipe. First, light cookies with turmeric and also chocolaty ones with carob, cocoa and chocolate chips. As a result, there’s a bit of messing about involved with the process. However, should you favour easier and quicker version, you’d probably prefer to stick to one kind of cookies (see tips below). Either way, you’d get yummy and comforting cookies to enjoy.
In conclusion, my pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are vegan, plant-based, gluten-free (if you tolerate avenin in oats), refined sugar free, oil-free and also vegan Candida diet friendly (except for those on Candida cleanse).

Tips on my pumpkin chocolate chip cookies:
- Now, the cookies freeze really well. Therefore, you can make bigger batch for a longer period of time. Whenever necessary, take a few out and heat them up in oven (for crispy cookies) or in microwave oven (for soft result).
- Another tip: you might need to add more or less of the sweetener depending on how sweet your squash is and how big your sweet tooth is.
