The Best Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

In my opinion, it’s not fall until the pumpkin recipes are in full flow! And one of the staples at our house is Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, well that and pumpkin bread. Lucky for you guys I’ve perfected by chocolate chip cookie recipe so they are the softest most chewy cookies that you will ever eat. 

Each bite of these divine cookies has a hint of pumpkin spice and gooey melted chocolate chips. Let’s just say they are best served fresh and warm out of the oven. Let’s get started!

What is Pumpkin Puree?

Essentially Pumpkin Puree is cooked and pureed (or mashed up) pumpkin squash. Pumpkin Puree will not contain any spices, it can be used in pumpkin pie, cookies, bars, soups, sauces or muffins. 

How to Make Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  2. In a large bowl add coconut oil, brown sugar, and vanilla bean paste. Whisk together until well combined, will look like a thick paste. Then add in the coconut milk and pumpkin puree. Continue to whisk until well combined. To the same bowl, add in the whole wheat flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, gently mix. (FYI – The batter will be very thick!) Lastly, add in chocolate chips. 
  3. Scoop two tablespoon sized mounds of dough into your hand and form into a ball. Place ball onto prepared cookie sheet and slightly press down. Repeat for each cookie. Leave a few inches between each cookies for spreading.
  4. Bake cookies for 9 to 10 minutes (mine are perfect at 9 minutes), or until the edges are golden.
  5. Cool cookies on the baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer them to a cooling rack.

How Should You Store Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies?

Store these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies in an air tight container. If stored properly at room temperature they will last up to 3 days. 

Can You Freeze the Dough for these Vegan Cookies?

Yes, you can definitely can freeze this dough. I’d recommend pre-portioning them into the two tablespoon balls stated in the recipe and placing them on a baking sheet to freeze in ball form. Once they are frozen just place them in a freezer safe storage bag. Will last up to 6 months if stored properly.
