This is a partnered post as part of my Truvia Ambassadorship.
As a Truvia Ambassador we receive new products before they hit the shelves and we received the new Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend to use. So we made cookies, Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies using the new Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend. Since we are partnering with Truvia on this post we also wanted to share with you their new Truvia Baking Star contest.
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies Recipes:
4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Truvia Baking Blend
1/2 cup Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 (16 ounce) can solid pack pumpkin
1 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, both Truvia blends, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.
Next add the pumpkin, oil, eggs, milk and vanilla.
Mix the mixture on medium speed until well mixed.
Then stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by tablespoonful onto greased baking sheets.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 13-14 minutes or until edges just begin to brown.
Cool for 2 minutes then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
