Could make this into muffins as well.
As a matter of fact I have just made some cookies similar to this (also with chocolate chips) as I had some extra dough in freezer that I discovered this morning.
Baked some off and there were great! Seconds for all!

I am always looking for recipes that include use of fruits and veggies to get into my girls!
Thanks for the cake idea.


Ginger & Pickle

home baked goodies are the nicest to give/get! this recipe sounds awesome! will try!


I can't wait to try this! I think I would love it with the ginger, but I am sure that I will let my son talk me into adding the chocolate chips. (I'm glad I'm not the only mama who lets chocolate chips find their way into breakfast sometimes! Our favorites are the occasional chocolate chip pancakes and banana chocolate chip muffins!)

Mary Smith

Now that looks delicious! I'll have to try that after Halloween!

ellie and abbie

looks yummy!
I'm in the mood to bake with pumpkin. I'll have to give this a try. thanks!


I made these as mini-muffins last night and wanted to let you know how fab they were!! I substituted 100% whole wheat flour and traded applesauce for 1/2 the oil, so they were a litte more dense than a typical muffin, but they were delish. I used 1/2 cup cranberries and a 1/2 cup chocolate chips; they were a huge hit at our playgroup's Halloweeen party this morning. Thanks for a great recipe and a wonderful blog!
