Bite-Sized Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies


This fall weather calls for ALL. THE. PUMPKIN. SPICE.

You know we love our chocolate chip cookies. And cookie dough, for that matter. So, of course, we had to make them pumpkin spice. And mini, for extra fun.

You’re gonna need:

flour, baking soda, salt, and cornstarch

pumpkin spice

vegan margarine (our favorite brand)

pumpkin puree

brown sugar


nondairy milk

vanilla extract

and mini chocolate chips!! (our favs!!)

Plus: no eggs = dig head first into the raw dough! (If you’re worried about risks with raw flour but plan on eating the dough, toast it first for ~5 minutes at 350°F)

  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour measured correctly*
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup vegan margarine
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp non-dairy milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Line three baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, pumpkin spice, and cornstarch.
  • In a separate bowl, add the margarine, pumpkin, sugars, milk, and vanilla. Beat until combined.
  • Add ~1/2 of the flour mixture into the wet mixture and gently combine. Add the rest of the flour mixture and mix until just combined.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • For each cookie, scoop 1/2 – 1 tsp of dough and roll it into a ball (if your dough is sticky, you can chill it before scooping to make it easier). Place the rounded scoops onto your baking sheet with enough room in between each for spreading.
  • Bake for 5-7 minutes, until done to your liking. Enjoy with a glass of cold almond milk!


*Measure your flour using this method to ensure your cookies don’t turn out dry.

    These sound scrumptious! I was wondering if the recipe works with gluten-free flour — such as Bob’ s Red Mill 1 to 1?

    Hi! Can I sub some kind of oil for the margarine (it doesn’t need to be vegan)? Like coconut or avocado oil? Thanks!

      Hi Elisabeth! We haven’t tried these with a substitute, and because of the difference in structure between oil and margarine we can’t say for sure how you would substitute with oil as you might need to adjust other parts of the recipes. If you want to play around with this, go ahead!

      Hi Justine, they have different consistencies so we aren’t sure if they would turn out perfectly. Please let us know if you try!

    Tried this recipe with almond flour. Did not work at all. I think there is way too much sugar in them to set up properly. I will try again with less sugar.

      Hi Jordan! We definitely recommend all-purpose flour for this recipe. Let us know if you give them a shot again!

    Hi! I was wondering if this dough was okay to chill in the fridge overnight? Sometimes I only have time to prep OR bake, not both, so I usually make the dough the day before and bake it the day of.

      Hi Kaitlynn! That should be fine! It might take an extra minute or two in the oven, so just make sure to check on them and make sure they are fully cooked!
