Single serving pumpkin chocolate chip cookie

by I Heart Vegetables

I don't know what happened. I was sort of anti-pumpkin for awhile. Maybe because it's so cliche? Or maybe because pumpkin goes from zero to everywhere in about 4 days? But this recipe might have me hooked. Just like every other Lululemon-wearing, yoga-practicing, kale-loving, 20 somethings girl. I admit it. After a pumpkin muffin situation (When I made these mini pumpkin muffins, I think I ate 32 of them over the course of about 4 days) I started thinking about a single serving way to curb a pumpkin carving. Luckily, this recipe worked like a charm!
