FAMOUS PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
3/4 cup brown sugar ( I use Sucanat)
3 Tbsp. honey
1 (15oz) can of pumpkin
3/4 cup oil (I use melted virgin coconut oil, or substitute with unsweetened applesauce)
2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups flour (I use spelt flour, or you could use whole wheat, or any combination)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger (if you have pumpkin pie spice on hand you can use that instead)
1 to 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350
Beat until blended sugar, honey, pumpkin, oil and vanilla.
In another bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices.
Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture, and mix well.
By hand, stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greases cookie sheets.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, until they slightly firm up and bounce back after being touched.
Cool on wire racks.
*They taste even better the next day, but don't blame me if they don't make it that long!
**Be prepared to share this recipe... it is THAT good!
