Pumpkin Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies changed my life.  Not really, but they were my first step toward liking pumpkin.  I used to hate pumpkin until I tasted these Pumpkin Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies.  We used to go to an annual wine tasting/swapping party at a friends house every year.  Someone always brought these cookies – I really didn’t know they were pumpkin and just started eating them and thought they were delicious – fluffy, spicy and minty.  Then when they told me it was pumpkin I was really surprised.  After that I tried other pumpkin things and started to really like it and today I am addicted.

Here is the recipe to the famous pumpkin mint cookies, they are minty and you are probably thinking pumpkin and mint, hmm that is a strange combination – but these are delicious.

It can be hard to find mint chocolate chips but I order them on  Also in this picture I added a few white chocolate just for fun.

Other exciting news today is that I have 3 months to go with my pregnancy – time is flying by!

    I love cookies but i have never tried eating a cookie out of pumpkin. It kind of make me think that any vegetables can be used to make a cookie. That can be a good idea though and a healthy one.

    Someone who made this first batch of cookies are brave to try this unique combination of cookie ingredients! I can’t imagine the whole taste of pumpkin + mint chocolate chip. But I believe you – it must be good. Wait, it sounds like Thanksgiving and Christmas together… haha. Really, just 3 months left? That will be fast….hang in there! You have all good excuse to eat a lot this holiday season!

    If you want to know the crystal clear details it is better
    to view just about any online store web sites explaining the actual product or
    service information using elements. There are
    hundreds to choose from, allowing you the choice of matching the
    type with your own health and fitness goals. Having said that, the study has shown that
    just about anything that can maximize the metabolism, also can raise the weight
    reduction even if the human being is just resting.
