Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

This cookie recipe is a family favorite. I baked these cookies with my mom always around the holidays, and they are too good not to share. I typically follow a gluten-free, no processed sugar diet but make an exception for these babies. They are fairly simple, straight forward, and hard to mess up IMO. Hope you all enjoy!!


  • 2 Cups flour
  • 2 1/2 Cups quick or old fashion oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Cup butter softened
  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Cup solidly packed of pumpkin puree (from can)
  • 1 Cup chocolate chips or raisins (I always opt for the chocolate option)


Preheat oven to 350F. Combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt and set aside. In separate bowl combine butter and sugars beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Slowly add dry ingredients and pumpkin alternately. Mix well after each addition until dry ingredients and pumpkin are completely added. Stir in chocolate chips. For cookies drop about 1/4 cup of dough onto greased cookie sheets or cookie sheets lined with silicone bake sheet or parchment paper. Bake for 20-25 minutes and let cool on wire rack after removed from oven. Enjoy! 

Again, these cookies are awesome, and pretty difficult to screw up. I might try experimenting with making a gluten free non-refined sugar version in the future, but until then, I hope you try these cookies out because they are always a hit.
