You think…the best ever, the easiest ever? Well, yes I think so! This pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe is the easiest to make. I love making pumpkin chocolate chip cookies in the fall, and I rarely have time to spend a couple hours baking up cookies, so I needed something super easy and quick.
The secret to this cookie is that I am using the exact recipe for these that I did to make my pumpkin cupcakes!
This cupcake recipe is so easy, and it makes amazing cookies too!
When I want to make cookies, I want to be able to make them quickly and easily. I often like to make them in the evening for a treat for the kids but I don’t want to be up all night making them either! This pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe is so easy and they can be made in no time at all! Let’s get real, most of us just don’t have the time to spend baking all day, even if it is the more fun option.
As soon as the crisp autumn air hits, we are baking these cookies at least once a week. They are easy, economical and are a hit in my kids lunches for school. As my kids have grown, they only want to take lunches instead of buying school lunch. I have been trying hard to create good, healthy lunches for them with more homemade elements. These might not be the most healthy, but they aren’t bad! But, I know what is in them and that makes me feel better.
Whats even better? They are soft, fluffy, and decadent! I love my cookies to be soft and tender. I am not a fan of the crispy cookies, and these are definitely not that!
The process for making these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies is quite simple.Jump to Recipe
The secret to these cookies is that they are pumpkin chocolate chip cookies with cake mix! I have made these for years using 2 simple ingredients, but lately I have changed it up adding eggs as well as a few other things. Let me explain.
You can easily make pumpkin chocolate chip cookies with a spiced cake mix and pumpkin puree. I have found the flavor to be a bit strong for me, so I have made adjustments. Instead of using a spiced cake mix, I use a white cake mix, and add a different ratio of spices including cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger. I have found this to create a more delicate flavor which I am a fan.
How to make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies:
It’s so easy, really.
You want to take the pumpkin puree, cake mix, eggs, and spices into a bowl and combine. Once its combined, you can add your chocolate chips. I love using Ghiridelli chocolate chips or Guittard chocolate chips because they are bigger chips. They are also just the best!
Once they are mixed in, bake them in the oven at 325 degrees for between 12-14 minutes.
They are delicious out of the oven, but I would recommend waiting about 10 minutes to eat them.
They are also delicious the next day!
I love to put these in my kids lunches…if they make it there! Sometimes it makes it to my mouth before that haha!

Easy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
This is the easiest pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. They are soft, fluffy and full of chocolate chips! What more could you ask for!
- 1 white cake mix
- 3 eggs
- 3 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground cloves
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1 bag chocolate chips
- 1 can pumpkin puree
Preheat oven to 325°
Put the eggs, cake mix, and pumpkin puree in a bowl and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon.
Mix is 3/4-1 bag of chocolate chips. I love using Ghirradelli chocolate chips, because they are bigger and so good! We like a lot of chocolate chips in our cookies, so if you like less, put less in.
Bake for 12-14 minutes until firm but still soft.
Let cool for 10 minutes if you can wait that long! Sometimes I end up eating them right out of the oven! One recipe makes approximately 24 cookies.
There is a variation you can make on this pumpkin cookie by omitting the chocolate chips and topping the pumpkin cookies with my favorite cream cheese frosting. They are soooo good this way too!
