  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup milk chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350F/175C and line a baking tray with parchment paper or a non-stick mat.
  • Place all the ingredients into a bowl and stir until a batter forms. It will be a very loose batter that more closely resembles cake batter than cookie dough.
  • Dollop 12 spoonfuls of batter on the baking tray. Each one should be around 1.5 tablespoons of batter.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies just begin to set, but the centres are still soft.
  • Leave the cookies to cool on the baking tray for at least 5 minutes. (They'll continue cooking during this time and will firm up a little).
