I’m kind of obsessed with Lizzo rn (who isn’t tho?) and I about died when I saw the twitter exchange with @MeCookieMonster and Lizzo. “Me just took a DNA test turns out me 100% cookies” LOL and then Lizzo came back with “EVEN WHEN ME CRUMBLE CRAZY ME GOT SHORTBREAD PROBLEMS THATS THE MONSTER IN ME NOM NOM THEN ME EAT EM THATS THE COOKIE IN ME”. As if I needed to love her anymore. Anyways as I write this blog post that’s the jingle in my head rn. Bc basically after testing this recipe my DNA test would also be 100% cookies.

It’s officially fall, ladies and gents (even if it’s 80 degrees here on the East coast). So bust out your pumpkin and your flannel because it’s time to get COZY. And in true fall fashion, I had to kick things off with a pumpkin recipe! These pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are HEAVENLY. They’re crispy on the outside and ultra chewy on the inside. They also happen to be gluten-free if that’s your fancy but if not you can totally sub the GF flour for all-purpose!

I’ve been loving these as something sweet to have at night after dinner or even after lunch if I feel that hankering for something sweet. This recipe has been hitting the spot so you best believe it’s going to be on repeat this fall.
