Okay, so … I’ll be up front and tell you that this really isn’t a healthy dessert. But I love making these on Thanksgiving and that’s a cheat day from healthy foods, right? 😉

Ingredients

  • 1 cup vegan butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 C brown sugar
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup non-dairy semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix brown and granulated sugars until creamed. Add pumpkin, vanilla and apple sauce and mix well.

Step 2

Add dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Fold in chocolate chip and walnuts, if using.

Step 3

On a greased pan, place flattened cookie dough at the size of your preference. I made 12 large cookies, as photographed. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until they look dry - but try not to burn the bottom.

Step 4

Let sit until cooled. Enjoy!
