Pumpkin-Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


I love a good pumpkin cookie.  I love that I can make a sweet treat for my family and know that it includes a healthy ingredient like pumpkin.  When I saw a recipe that also included oatmeal in it, I had to try it.  The oatmeal just ramps up the healthy aspect even more.

The original recipe called for quick oats or old fashioned oats.  I was worried that the quick oats would make the cookies too thick, so I opted for the old fashioned oats.  Unfortunately the cookies turned out to flat and runny.  I made another attempt.  This time I used a combination of quick and old fashioned oats.  It produced the perfect consistency.

I also make the cookies with just chocolate chips but you can substitute it with any combination of mix in that you think would be good such as raisins and walnuts or white chocolate chips and craisins.  If you try something different out, be sure to comment on what you did and how it turned out.  I want to try chocolate covered raisins with walnuts!

  • These cookies are AMAZING!!! I only had all old fashioned oats, so I put in about 2 tbsp more pumpkin, and used mini semi sweet choc chips!
    SO YUMMY!

  • Wow. Laura, I got to tell you these cookies were D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S! Thank you for posting. Now I don’t do much baking, prefer watching the Giants play, but I had some extra pumpkin pie from and said “why the heck not.”

    Can’t wait to make these little zingers again next year!!I i

  • These were delicious. i used raisons, dark chocolate chips, butterscotch chocolate chips and walnuts. Thank you for this recipe!

  • I’m baking these right now, smells so good! I used chocolate chips, cinnamon chips and walnuts!! Can’t wait to eat them!! Yummmm 🙂

  • I’m baking these as I type and can’t wait to try them! I used 1.5 c. of choc chips and 3/4 c. Craisins. I hope they turn out! Thanks for the recipe. 🙂

  • I’m not so much into pumpkins but with this recipe I just might change how i view pumpkins now. This was such a delicious and easy to prepare treat. Definitely would be in my easy cookie recipe collection.

  • They taste fantastic! not sure why, but the first two sheets came out really thin…let them sit for 3 mins on the pan before moving them. They just crumble apart. Taste great though! The last two sheets firmed up more so next time I make them I will actually refrigerate the dough for a bit I think. Thanks for sharing! Oh, and I used 1 C tiny chocolate chips and 1/2 C Heath Bits! Maybe I just needed more ‘bulk’ and should add more of each next time. 🙂

  • These look so good. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies always remind me of my grandpa who had them at his house a lot ;).
