The key to making the best pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe (gluten free)

Sour cream! Newsflash! Sour cream is always the secret ingredient to making something fantastically delicious. That, or buttermilk. It’s all about the acidity, and your baked goods will thank you for taking them from basic to incredible. (This ain’t no PSL, guys.)

People will be oohing and ahhing and demanding to know, “What’s in this?!” (I feel like there is an underlying philosophical message here, but I’m not going to expound on the subject because we have pumpkin chocolate chip cookies to make. Just look for it in my book, Food Psychology: What Your Food Says About You.)

Health benefits of cinnamon and fall spices

  1. Cinnamon is loaded with antioxidants and contains anti-inflammatory compounds.
  2. Nutmeg is loaded with minerals and may support pain relief, enhance cognitive function, and support indigestion.
  3. Cloves are rich in antimicrobial properties, meaning they can support immune system health! Totally need during this cold and flu season!

In addition to using these spices in my foods, I like to diffuse these essential oils in my house. This one is my favorite for making my house smell and feel like a purified pumpkin spice fall haven!
