If you’re one of those people that doesn’t like pumpkin, trust me, I realize I’m on a bit of a pumpkin bender but don’t worry, it’ll be over soon! I don’t live and dream pumpkin like some people… (not looking at anyone in particular) However, I would love to change your mind! I wasn’t a huge pumpkin fan growing up but I truly love it in baking and cooking. It adds a moisture and a delicious sweet flavour. It’s also very nutritious so I love opening a big can and using it in a few recipes that week.
These cookies are gluten-free and I highly suggest using certified gluten-free oats if you’re intolerant to oats but you could also try my Grain-free Soft Pumpkin Cookie recipe.

P.S. Do your chocolate chips look white like this? I wasn’t going to share this picture because they don’t look “ideal” but don’t worry! They haven’t gone “bad”. They’re just a bit old (don’t judge me ok!) I buy a large bag from Costco so by the time I’m done, the chocolate isn’t as fresh but it tastes the same! So if yours goes white like this too, it’s ALL GOOD!
These cookies were QUITE LARGE 🙂 Just how I like them! I have a weird lack of patience when baking cookies in that I just always want to bake them all at once if possible… I could have baked about 18 but I piled it on one tray and they turned out perfect! Super soft and goey on the inside. My favourite! If you make more cookies, you would need to adjust the baking time and just watch them. My oven is quite fast so I usually just set a timer for 10 minutes and then keep an eye on them after that.
I used coconut sugar in my recipe to keep it refined sugar free friendly (this also depends on the chocolate chips you use) but you’re totally able to use brown sugar in these pumpkin oatmeal cookies. I find coconut sugar/brown sugar create a delicious caramel/deeper flavour in cookies that I love.
I can’t get over how easy this recipe was! You’ll just need 1 bowl, a little bit of refrigeration time and an appetite to enjoy these warm, right out of the oven!
