This past week I decided I wanted to do a little baking and Spice Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies were on the menu!
I wanted to make these the week prior, but time just didn’t allow so I went ahead and whipped these up over the weekend and boy, oh boy, were they delicious! Not only were they delicious, but they were so simple to make. It involved opening packages and a can, dumping the contents into a bowl and measuring out chocolate chips and walnuts. Easy as pie.
The Points Plus values do vary depending on the amount of cookies you make so your individual recipe would have to be thrown into Weight Watchers Recipe Builder to uncover the points plus value per serving. I ended up making 68 cookies and it made each cookie 1 points plus value each.
These cookies are softer cookies – but they are heavenly.
- 1 box Spice Cake Mix
- 1 can 100% pure pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie)
- ½ cup chopped walnuts
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- ~1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Blend spice cake mix. Pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin together until evenly combined and there are no bumps left. Add in the chopped walnuts and chocolate chips and fold until combined.
Using a melon baller, teaspoon or the tip of a tablespoon drop cookies onto a non-stick cookie sheet. Note: the cookies don’t really rise or spread so having them close together (but not touching) on the pan will not affect the end result.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for roughly 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cooking times vary oven to oven, so it may take up to 15 minutes to bake.
Last but not least – enjoy!
