(vegan) Pumpkin white chocolate chips cookies

As you can see I had enough pumpkin to make a few recipes! I've done the pie, cupcakes for the World Vegan Day and cookies (made them twice and still have pumpkin to one more batch!). I was inspired by this recipe from the blog have cake, will travel - one of my favourite blogs ever. I hadn't regular chocolate chips and decided to try the white ones, even not being sure if they would suit with pumpkin. And I really enjoyed the combination and also Matteo, who has eating most of the cookies!

I didn't follow the recipe and decided to try something new, so here's my recipe:

Pumpkin white chocolate chips cookie

1/2 cup wholemeal flour
1/2 cup white flour
1 teaspoon nutmeg 
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup vegan margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup pumpkin purée
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Cook the pumpkin and when it's cold, dry the water and mash it. Using your stand mixer, cream together margarine and sugar. Stir in pumpkin and vanilla until combined. Add flour, nutmeg, salt and baking powder and mix. Stir in chips. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions, place on parchment pape and flatten your cookies. Preheat oven to 180°C and bake the cookies for 15 minutes or until golden on top and around the edges. Wait 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

These cookies look really delicious!! but I have a doubt about white chocolate, it isn't vegan, is it? perhaps you find some white chocolate without milk (lucky guys, I'm trying so hard to find it). Great blog, I'll follow you! my greetings to Matteo from Italy! ^ ^ simpaticissima (oltre che buonissima)la ricetta del cotechino con puré e lenticchie!
ciao ;)

Ciao Benedetta! I wouldn't use anything that's not vegan in my recipes. These white chocolate chips are from Germany, got them in the vegan supermarket in Berlin and there are some other vegan options for white chocolate. I can find the bars here in Dublin :) Let me know if you want the link to the brands!

Thank u so much for your comment. I thought it exists but I can't find it in the organic grocery shops where I used to do my shopping. Perhaps I have to buy it online :( Thank you! bye!!

These look so good, and have me craving sweets already (I just finished up breakfast for crying out loud!) Vegan white chocolate chips are such a treat, and I can imagine them pairing nicely with the pumpkin flavor.
