I doubled this recipe because I hate using only a half a can of pumpkin. These are wonderful when cold, they are very moist and chocolatey! From Beach Bride in MD with alterations by me!
1 can pumpkin 2 cups white sugar 1 cup vegetable oil 2 eggs 3 1/2 cups flour 1 1/2 cups oats 4 tsp baking powder 4 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp nutmeg 1 tsp salt 2 tsp baking soda 2 tsp milk 2 T vanilla 2 cups chocolate chips 1 cup chopped nuts (optional, I didn't use)
Combine pumpkin, sugar, oil and egg. Mix well. In a seperate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and oats. Dissolve baking soda with the milk and add to pumpkin mixture. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix well.
Add vanilla and chocolate chips. (nuts if you want them)
Drop by tablespoonful on greaed cookie sheet (I used parchmant paper) and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly brown and slightly firm.
