It’s finally Pumpkin Spice Season, aka Fall! If you’re “basic” like me and love all things pumpkin spice, these gluten free chocolate chip pumpkin cookies are a must-make.

They’re full (enough) of pumpkin spice flavor, pumpkin puree, and loaded with chocolate chips. What’s not to love?!

These gluten free chocolate chip pumpkin cookies are based off of one of my favorite fall cookies, gluten free pumpkin cookies with cream cheese frosting. OHMYHEAVEN.

With a couple quick tweaks, you’re satisfying two cravings in one – pumpkin spice and chocolate. I reduced the amount of pumpkin spice in these because my personal preference is for less spice when chocolate’s involved.

However, if you want full-on pumpkin spice cookies, make them with 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice instead of 1 teaspoon.

As far as the chocolate goes, I recommend using semi-sweet chocolate chips in these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. If you prefer using chopped chocolate or chocolate chunks, feel free to do so.

I don’t flatten these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies before baking them in the oven. I prefer to keep them nice and mounded, in the exact same shape as they came out of the cookie scoop.

The result is a pillow-y soft cake-like pumpkin cookie. It literally just melts right in your mouth as you take a bite, which, in my opinion, is the ideal gluten free pumpkin cookie.

These cake-like Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies have all the pumpkin spice flavor you love with the delicious addition of chocolate chips! They’re really easy to make and are perfect for lunch boxes, fall parties, Halloween, or even Thanksgiving.

I’d rather save the chewy, bakery-style cookie for my gluten free chocolate chip cookies. Each cookie really has its own ideal texture. Like gluten free sugar cookies – they need to be soft in the middle with crisp bottoms.

So, if you’re looking for crispy or chewy pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, this isn’t the recipe for you. On the other hand, my pumpkin cake loving friends, you’re home. Welcome to my pumpkin spice kitchen 😉

This recipe makes about 35 cookies when you use a medium scoop (1 ½ tablespoons). The yield will depend on whether you over-fill your cookie scoop or level it off.

Also, feel free to press additional chocolate chips into the tops of the cookies before baking. A little extra chocolate is never a bad idea. Enjoy!

Hey there! Thank you for posting this, its becoming trendy to go for the chewy texture pumpkin cookies, which are yummy, but this classic fluffy style always has a place in my heart! For me, they got brown and a toothpick inserted came out clean, but they’re kinda gummy inside instead of fluffy :( any ideas as to why? When I added the pumpkin puree my butter mixture did break. Is this usual? I used better batter flour and measured carefully.

The shape of these cookies are great. The pillowy look makes them feel even more indulgent than a normal flat cookie.
