Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies – Deliciously thick, soft, and chewy pumpkin cookies that are perfectly spiced, and stuffed full of chocolate chips. No chilling required!
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies
I have the perfect pumpkin cookie recipe for you!
These cookies are incredibly thick, soft, and chewy, perfectly spiced with cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, and PACKED full of pumpkin and chocolate chips.
There are also no eggs in this recipe. That’s because pumpkin can replace the eggs, and the eggs’ purpose, which is to bind all the ingredients together as well as to add moisture.
Pumpkin already has plenty of moisture, and too much of it can result in cakey cookies.
No eggs and the right amount of pumpkin results in perfectly soft and chewy cookies!
Ingredients you’ll need
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these cookies. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- Plain/all-purpose flour
- Baking soda
- Cornflour/cornstarch: Makes for extra soft and thick cookies.
- Ground cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg
- Unsalted butter: Melted.
- Light brown sugar: Using all brown sugar results in extra soft and chewy cookies, as well as giving them a subtle molasses flavour.
- Canned pumpkin puree
- Vanilla extract
- Chocolate chips: You can use milk, dark, or semi-sweet.
How to make Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies
To make these cookies, simply grab a medium mixing bowl and whisk together the flour, baking soda, cornflour, salt, and spices. Set aside.
In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the butter and sugar until combined.
Add the pumpkin puree and vanilla extract, and mix until combined.
Add the dry ingredients and fold in until just combined.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Roll the dough into 2-oz balls (or use a medium cookie scoop).
Place onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat, and bake for 10 – 12 minutes.
Allow to cool on the baking tray for 5 – 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.
NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.

- scrumptiously thick, soft, and chewy (no cakey cookies here!)
