  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper sheets (or lightly grease the cookie sheet if you don’t have parchment paper).
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine pumpkin, sugar, oil, vanilla and egg. Mix until well combined.

  4. Add in the chocolate chips and nuts and stir until evenly combined.
  5. Using a medium cookie scoop(medium scoop is equal to 1 1/2 tablespoons), drop mounds of the cookie dough on the prepared cookie sheets.
