Pumpkin Week: Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Day two of Pumpkin Week and this just might be my favorite pumpkin recipe of the week. I'm a cookie lover, especially a chocolate chip cookie lover, so this recipe was a no brainer for me. The cookies were super soft cookies and subtle in their pumpkin flavor. I think me eating about six cookies right out of the oven is proof enough of how great the cookies were. The kids loved them too!

Day 1: Pumpkin Bread

Makes 18 cookies

1 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup + 3 Tbsp pumpkin puree
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
In a medium bowl combine flour, oats, baking powder and soda, spices, and salt. Mix together and set aside.
In a large bowl, with a handheld mixer or stand up mixer, beat the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add pumpkin puree and vanilla. Stir to combine.  Slowly add the dry ingredients, mixing together until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Drop cookies onto baking sheet, about 2 tbsp each. Press down lightly and bake for 10-12 minutes, until edges golden.
