Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

Jump to recipe!

Have I told you lately how much I love baking during the Fall? Not since yesterday, right? Let me tell you again…I LOVE to bake…especially during the Fall! Now, don’t get me wrong, baking during Christmas has a place in my heart too, but with all the hustle and bustle of shopping, wrapping and decorating, baking seems to take a back seat during the Christmas season, at least in our house.

October 29th is National Oatmeal Day…did you know? I didn’t.

While I love a bowl of piping hot oatmeal with raisins and cinnamon in the morning, I really love Oatmeal Cookies! And when you add Pumpkin, Raisins and Walnuts…oh my! I could eat the whole batch!

Pretty much all the delicious flavors of Fall wrapped up in a sweet, little, soft cookie! I had to share a big bag of these cookies with the neighbor today so I wouldn’t eat them all.

  1. GREAT RECIPE! I made these gluten free and sugar free for a baby shower today and everyone loved them.

    1. So excited you like it Ashley! Thanks for stopping by to tell me!
      Happy Baking!

  2. Why can’t I use pumpkin pie filling? Will it ruin the cookies?

    1. Hi Vicki, pumpkin pie filling has the additional ingredients already in it like syrup, water, and spices. Canned pumpkin, is just pumpkin with no additional ingredients.
      Happy Baking!

  3. prepped this dough this morning…baked 1 dozen to taste…I did change the recipe just a tad…LESS sugar, NO raisins, 1/4 cup chopped pecans and MORE spice…1/2 cup white sugar instead of 1 cup, 2 teaspoons cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon allspice…I usually use less sugar…sometimes it’s a hit and then there are the misses…but today it is a HIT…and now that Libbey canned pumpkin comes in 1 cup cans…even better…

    1. Oh good, so glad it turned out. You had me worried for a minute that they didn’t.
      Happy Baking!

  4. I am a huge fan of oatmeal raisen cookies.
    Adding the pumpkin to the mix just took it to another level.
    Thanks for the great recipe!

  5. I am on an oatmeal craze here lately and these are just screaming out to me. YUM! I think I might just have everything I need to make them in my pantry too! I shared it in my Pumpkin Round Up on my blog today! 🙂

  6. I’m a huge fan of everything pumpkin, but other than a recipe my mom used to make years ago, I haven’t found a pumpkin cookie that I loved. This looked amazing, liked all the add-ins. Well, I halved this and my cookies are yummy, but appear to be more cake-y than those you have pictured. I was hoping for more of the texture of a traditional oatmeal cookie. Were yours chewy?

    1. Hi Paula, I have to be honest, I made these last year and haven’t made them again this year yet. If I remember correctly they were not chewy, but not terribly cakey either. You might try a little less flour next time.
      Happy Baking!

  7. Made with coconut flour, earth butter and chocolate chips. Unreal! I can’t stop eating them 🙂 thank you!

  8. I just made these cookies. I used dried cranberries instead of raisins and added white chocolate chips. After they cooled I drizzled with melted white chocolate . This is my new favorite cookie! Thanks for sharing. Amy

  9. I am definitely going to give this a try -I wanted to let you know that I featured this recipe today in my “What I Bookmarked This Week” post -stop by and see!

  10. Oh, boy!! I JUST made a large sheet cake using your fabulous chocolate mix-in-the pan recipe. I love, love, love oatmeal cookies so much, and I cannot wait to try this one. I know it will be a winner, just like everything else that you do! Also, thank you for helping all of your readers with the close look at grocery budgeting and eating nutritiously. We are trying our best here in Miami to be healthy, and we can use all the wonderful hints and tips! One of the little things I do to help is to make a double batch of a healthy dish, and freeze half for another meal later on. It seems to save time, and most of all, sanity! I try very hard to make everything that I eat, including my bread, from scratch. I feel like that gives me much more control over my budget.

  11. Sharon Wood says:

    I cannot wait to try these cookies, I happen to have all the items on hand and my granddaughter and I will be making these together…making memories!

  12. National oatmeal day? What a great thing to celebrate! Your cookies look great.
