Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


This twist on the classic cookie is perfect for Thanksgiving, and make them a tad healthier, too! You’ll love the delicious aroma that fills your home when these are baking.


1 egg

½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened

½ cup light brown sugar, packed

¼ cup granulated sugar

½ cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie)

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

1 cup all-purpose flour

1-1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

½ teaspoon baking soda

Pinch of salt to taste

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350-degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter and sugars until creamy.  

Add the egg, pumpkin puree and vanilla and mix on medium to combine.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and spices.  Slowly add a little at a time to the wet mixture.

Add the rolled oats and chocolate to the mixture and mix until combined.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.

Let the cookies cool 5 minutes on the tray before moving them to a wire rack to cool.

Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 1 week.


Note: If you do not have pumpkin pie spice on hand, you can use the following instead:

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

⅛ teaspoon allspice

⅛ teaspoon ground cloves

Pinch each of ground ginger and cardamom
