Today at STYLEanthropy, I’m sharing some of my favorites for the coming months ahead. I know you’re probably thinking it’s only August! But I like to prepare ahead, and give you ideas for the upcoming Fall gatherings about to ensue! So for today’s 3 Favorite Things Thursday, they are: (1) Fall season, (2) my fave Starbucks® Pumpkin Spice Caffè Latte, and these amazing (3) pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chip cookie! And yes, I’m sharing the recipe below.
Fall, Pumpkin Spice Caffè Latte, and Cookies
I don’t know about you, but Fall is my favorite season! You may have heard me say that a million times already, but I’ll keep on saying that every time. There’s something about the weather, the foliage, the flavors, and those days leading up to the holidays that make me love this time of the year! Speaking of flavors, you know what I look forward to during Fall? Obviously, PUMPKIN SPICE!
Pumpkin Spice Caffè Latte
I grew up in a tropical country without Fall season. So I never understood the Pumpkin Spice latte craze until I finally gave in and tried it for the first time just two Fall seasons ago. I always thought it was weird. Pumpkin? Coffee??? But my mind was blown when I tasted it. It was delicious. So I’m glad I can easily make some at home with these Starbucks® Pumpkin Spice Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods (6 ct) that you can find at your local Giant Eagle.
How to Make a Starbucks® Pumpkin Spice Caffè Latte at Home
- Just empty the packet (Step 1) in your cup.
- Load the Starbucks® Pumpkin Spice Caffè Latte K-Cup® pod (Step 2) in your coffee machine, choose the 8 oz. setting, and start brewing.
Voila! Enjoy Pumpkin Spice Caffè Latte in seconds!
But you know what’s better with it? These pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chip cookies…
Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
- 2 cups flour
- 1⅓ cups oatmeal
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 cup softened butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ¾ cup semi sweet chocolate morsels
- Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
- In a bowl, combine flour, oatmeal, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
- In another mixing bowl, blend together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until fluffy.
- Add in the pumpkin puree, egg, and vanilla extract. Continue to mix.
- Fold in the the flour mixture and mix.
- Add the chocolate chip/morsels and mix.
- Line a large cookie pan with parchment or wax paper. You can also just use a silicone baking pan.
- Drop spoonfuls of dough on the pan. I use a cookie scoop for even rounds. I can fit about 12-15 cookies per pan. If you have 2 pans, you can cook 2 pans at a time.
- Cook for 12-14 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Since this recipe yields about 52 cookies, I had to do about 3 batches of baking. Enjoy!
Now, wasn’t that easy and looking oh so delicious?
