Pumpkin Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

The Pinterest freak that I am has hundreds of delicious recipes waiting to be used. Spending time with a cute little five year old last weekend had been inspired to bake some cookies with her. I hopped on my board and found that perfect Cate flavored cookies! Pumpkin Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups quick oats
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/3 cups packed light-brown sugar
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups canned pumpkin puree
1 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

How To:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, oats, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger for 30 seconds.

In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until creamy.
Blend in egg, then blend in vanilla extract and pumpkin puree.
With mixer set on low speed, slowly add in dry ingredients and mix until combined.
Mix in chocolate chips.

Scoop dough out 2 Tbsp at a time onto parchment paper lined baking sheets, spacing cookies 2-inches apart. 
Bake in preheated oven 12 - 14 minutes. 

ENJOY!
