- Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

- In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, oil, pumpkin, vanilla and egg until smooth.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until just combined, then stir in the chocolate chips. Do not over-mix.
- Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto the parchment-lined baking sheets, leaving about two inch between the cookies. Bake for about 12 minutes, until a cake tester inserted in the center of one of the cookies comes out clean. Cool the cookies on the baking sheet on a wire rack for a few minutes, and then remove the cookies with a spatula and finish cooling the directly on the racks.
