Stress-free easy pumpkin chocolate chip cookies

Being a wife, Mom, blogger, stylist and so much more, I don’t have a ton of free time. One thing I have been putting aside extra time towards is fun activities with my daughter. Fun things that we can do at home that are age appropriate and that don’t break the bank. I introduced her to baking about a month ago and we had a blast! 

I let her help me measure the ingredients and pour them into the bowls to mix. The best part about baking is the yummy treats after we are done with our project!

I was volunteered by my Husband to bake for his Thanksgiving potluck at work. This was the perfect opportunity to take a morning to bake something fun and easy with my daughter! I knew that a pumpkin treat was in order since it’s Thanksgiving and all. Full disclosure here, I never bake my own recipes. I am definitely not a chef by trade or a baker for that matter, so Pinterest is my jam! I found a delicious looking recipe a few weeks back and pinned for a later time. I headed to my nearest Dollar General and picked up the two essentials for the recipe that I didn’t already have on hand, NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Morsels and LIBBY’S® 100% Pure Pumpkin. Dollar General was so easy to navigate and the prices were lower than the grocery store! There was even a coupon I could use for the morsels saving me even more money than I thought!

Now for the Recipe!

Thanks to Chelsea at two twenty one, we had a stress-free baking experience.



  • 1/2 c. canola oil
  • 1 c. LIBBY’S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. milk
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 c. flour
  • 2 c. semisweet NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Morsels


  1. Combine oil, pumpkin, sugar, egg, & vanilla.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine baking soda & milk. Add to pumpkin mixture.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine cinnamon, baking powder, salt, & flour. Add to pumpkin mixture.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°.
  6. Allow batter to sit for 15 minutes.
  7. Using a cookie scoop, place batter on baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

I loved this recipe so much because I didn’t need a ton of ingredients that I didn’t already have in the house and the photo had these gorgeous cake-like cookies in it.

While my cookies didn’t turn out as good looking as Chelsea’s, they were delicious as suspected!

If you have a Dollar General near by, I highly suggest stopping in for all of your Holiday grocery needs and don’t forget those coupons!
