Vegan Pumpkin Spice Cardamom Chocolate Chip Cookies

The weather might be stuck in summer, but fall is definitely on the brink. It’s getting darker earlier, and pumpkin and apples are appearing everywhere, and they will definitely be making many appearances on VegetarianSnob in the next few weeks to come! Today’s recipe is a dessert, which I know I never do. I don’t know why either! I definitely have a sweet tooth! Today’s recipe is for a fall pumpkin spice cardamom vegan chocolate chip cookie! They’re packed with fall spices and pumpkin seeds (aka pepitas) and they’re not greasy (like a ton of my vegan cookies have been in the past…).

But the flavors are also not overwhelming, there’s a perfect balance between sweet and spice. The cookies not only remind me of fall, but of chai teas and that’s what I love most about them and one of the bagillion things I love about fall!
