Pumpkin-Honey Chocolate Chip Cookies

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 15 mins

Soft, plump cookies packed with pumpkin, grated carrot and chocolate chips. So easy to make and not too sweet. Created for RSC Lucky #13. Thanks to reviewer input I've clarified the portioning of batter & I'd like to note that these are basically a "muffin top" instead of a crispy cookie. If you like the tops of the muffins but find the bottoms too dry, look no further! This is a great alternative to throwing out or gagging down a dry muffin bottom. lol BTW - Nothing against muffins, which I love in whole & make often. ;)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, spices, baking soda, baking powder & salt.
  2. In medium bowl, whisk eggs lightly. Stir in pumpkin, grated carrot, honey & melted butter. Whisk until combined then stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Don't over mix.
  4. Spread a sheet of parchment paper over cookie sheets & drop 1 Tablespoon of batter for each cookie about 2-3 inches apart on parchment.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, then cool on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool the rest of the way.

What a very special cookie! They almost look like little cakes. It has a pumpkin spice flavor and I love how the cardamom kind of trails off in the end. They would be perfect with a cup of coffee and I know my DBF is looking forward to having them for breakfast. I'm going to have to hide a few for myself. I cut the recipe in half (there are only 2 of us after all) and otherwise followed the directions as listed. I think walnuts or chopped dried pineapple would be good in these too- but to be honest, they are just perfect as they are, so why mess with perfection? Thank you chef! Edit 3/12: Today I asked DBF what he wanted me to bake for him- what ever he wanted- He requested these! (I should have known, he always wants these!) I love them too and have made them countless times this past year. Thanks Tinkerbell.

This is a delicious recipe but I would not call it a cookie. I would call it a muffin. it is the exact consistency and sweetness of a muffin; so if you want muffins or something to enjoy with breakfast this is perfect! If you're expecting cookies this might miss the mark.
