PUMPKIN COOKIES FROM SCRATCH

ORGANIC PUMPKIN COOKIES WITH NO CAKE MIX

 

Back in college my roommate made the most amazing cookies-pumpkin chocolate chip, something I’d never had before.  They were moist, chocolatey and pumpkiny-everything you want for a halloween-season treat.  The recipe was simple-a box of spice cake mix, a bag of chocolate chips and a can of pumpkin-that was it!  So easy and so delicious.

Fast-forward to now.  I’m trying to get away from cake mixes (we’re not in love with hydrogenated oils) and I’m getting a little prideful in my baking (I don’t need no cake mix!!) and I love having the option of making these organic or gluten free. So I went on a mission to find a homemade spice cake mix recipe.  I found the perfect one here from iambaker.  I was a little bit nervous about using a scratch cake mix and just throwing in pumpkin and chocolate chips but it worked out amazing!  I put together all of the dry ingredients:

And my most favorite dark chocolate chips:

Broke out the lunch lady scooper (necessary for all good recipes) and scooped those evenly distributed cookies onto a lightly greased cookie sheet.
