Pumpkin Lavender Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin Lavender Chocolate Chip Cookies | Erica Robbin

I love pumpkin! My sister grew the one I used in this recipe and I was so excited to make so many recipes with it.

I also had some lavender from my garden and wanted to combine the two, so here is what I came up with.

The lavender is barely there which I thought was just right. It added just a bit of depth into the traditional pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, to which I also added coconut sugar and spices for a perfectly rich fall treat!

Enjoy with a glass of milk!
