Final Product. YUMMM
Previous version just to show that these can be made much larger as well

I don’t recall who showed me how to make these cookies, but I’ve been making them for around 15 years. I think it may have been a cousin of mine, but I kind of pretend they are my own at this point.

I love making these cookies. They are so simple, easy, and lower fat than many other cookies. There is no egg, no butter, and only dairy in the types of chocolate chips you choose.

All the ingredients you need


  • 1 Can Pumpkin Puree (I used Farmer’s Market Organic Pumpkin Puree)
  • 1 Box of Spice Cake mix (I used Betty Crocker Super Moist)
  • 1 Bag of Chocolate Chips (I used Nestle Toll House Premier White)


  • Hand Mixer
  • Baking Sheets
  • Parchment Paper
  • Spoon/Spatula
  • Cookie Cooling Rack


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl add the cake mix followed by the can of pumpkin.
  3. Using the hand mixer, blend the pumpkin into the cake mix until it is completely smooth.
  4. Pour in all the chocolate chips and fold them in with a spoon or spatula.
  5. Spoon out portions onto your baking sheets that are lined with parchment paper. You can choose how big you want your cookies to be. The bigger the softer the middle may be.
  6. Place baking sheet in middle rack and bake for 16-20 minutes until you reach your desired crispy edges and browned levels. You can test the cookies like you would a cake, by using a dry toothpick and poke inside the cookie. If your toothpick comes out dry and nothing sticking, you should be pretty good.
  7. If you have a cookie cooling rack, immediately, gently transfer the cookies to the rack for cooling.
  8. ENJOY!
