These vegan pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are a healthy twist on a classic favorite! They’re soft and cakey, almost like a muffin top. Perfect to make for a party!



  • 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 2 tbsp grapeseed oil (or vegetable oil)
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup All-Purpose Flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp┬ádried ground ginger
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (be sure to use vegan chips to keep it vegan!)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Combine the pumpkin, oil, applesauce, and sugar until mixed.
  3. Stir in the vanilla.
  4. Slowly add in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and ginger.
  5. Stir until just mixed.
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  7. Drop spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet and pop it in the oven for 8 minutes. My oven tends to run hot so yours might need a couple extra minutes. Just be sure they don’t burn on the bottom!
  8. Once they’re done, take them out of the oven and immediately transfer onto a plate or cooling rack.
