I’m still learning the light in our new house. It always seems to take that extra few photo shoots to nail it. I think these turned out pretty good, though. I shot these by our back door when the sunshine was still shining through and used a diffuser to tone down the harsh lighting. But, I don’t think it’d be too hard to mess up photos of these cookies. They’re mouthwatering as it is!

I’m so thankful to have found Yammie’s Noshery’s recipe. I adapted it to make it a little healthier…you know how it goes. Then, with my crazy pregnancy taste right now, I can only bare white chocolate. So strange because outside of pregnancy, I’m really not that big of a white chocolate fan.

Of course, you can definitely substitute any chocolate chips in for the white chocolate and it’d be delicious!

These cookies are so moist and chewy. Something I’ve never had the pleasure of enjoying with a pumpkin cookie before. Absolutely delicious! And you can’t even tell they’re 100% whole wheat!

Since we just moved into the neighborhood, we passed them around to our new neighbors while we made our first introductions. Yeah, I know it’s supposed to be the other way around, but I’m a baker. I can’t show up on someone’s doorstep empty handed! I’ve got to share the baked love.

I’m pretty sure they were a hit! And you should make them. 🙂

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. With a spoon, stir the butter and brown sugar together until combined. Stir in the vanilla and pumpkin purée.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and flour. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Scoop 2 tablespoon round balls of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheets 2 inches apart. (Optional: Push a few chocolate chips on top of the balls for added impact.) Bake for 17-25 minutes or until light golden brown on the edges and puffed.
