Can you make chocolate chip cookies without an egg replacer?
The pumpkin in these takes the place of eggs, helping these to hold together and keeping them from drying out. So you don’t need to add a traditional egg replacer – the pumpkin works just fine!
What can I use in place of pumpkin puree in this cookie recipe?
You can use butternut squash puree if you wish! You can make your own homemade pumpkin puree as well. Mashed sweet potato would be another good substitute.
If you don’t like chocolate with pumpkin, you can add pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, or just enjoy these without any additions. A soft and chewy pumpkin cookie is a delicious treat even without chocolate!
