Today is Halloween! Happy Halloween! We have Captain America, a mime and a ladybug in our house this year.
I know it seems a little counter productive to post a cookie recipe on the most sugar laden holiday of the year but go with me on this.
You are heading out to trick or treat with little ones in tow. In fact, you might just be the one doing some three year old weight lifting from house to house. A few cookies before the night ahead are a must.
These cookies are delicious! Greek yogurt pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are absolutely delicious and turn out perfect! Grab a cookie, grab a kid and head out for the night. You've earned those cookies!
- 2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ½ teaspoon ground ginger
- Pinch of ground cloves
- ¾ cup nonfat plain greek yogurt (you can also do ¼ cup butter, ½ cup greek yogurt for a little more traditional butter flavored cookie)
- ½ cup brown sugar (can substitute coconut sugar)
- ¾ cup granulated sugar (can also substitute coconut sugar)
- 1 egg white
- 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
- ¾ cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
- 1 ½ cups chocolate chips (can substitute non dairy chips like Enjoy Life)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
- In a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and spices. Set aside.
- In the mixing bowl of a mixer, mix the greek yogurt (or butter/yogurt combination) and the sugars until smooth. Slowly pour in the egg white, vanilla extract and pumpkin puree, continuing to mix until smooth. Add in the flour mixture, continuing to mix until smooth. Turn off mixer, fold in chocolate chips.
- Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto a lightly greased cookie sheet, leaving 1-2 inches of space between cookies. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool for several minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring to a wire cooling rack to finish cooling.
