Pumpkin and oatmeal and chocolate, oh my! These are my favorite cookies in the world. I bake them every year around the holiday season and they are always a huge hit- buuuut I can’t help secretly hoarding half of them for myself. Note: these are also really good with some chopped nuts! Mix it up!

Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

Yields: About 30 cookies

  • 1 15 oz. can pumpkin purée (or 1-3/4 cups of homemade purée)
  • 2-3/4 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2-1/4 cup flour
  • 1 12 oz. bag chocolate chips
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt

    1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine flour, oats, spices, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.

    2. In a large mixing bowl, cream sugars and softened butter using an electric hand mixer. Add egg, vanilla and pumpkin purée. Then, add in dry ingredients and mix until combined. Add in chocolate chips and combine (but do not over mix). Refrigerate for 30-45 minutes.

    3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. While oven is preheating, grease a large baking sheet. Roll dough into individual balls about the size of a golf ball. Place dough balls on the baking sheet about an inch apart. Bake for 18-20 minutes.

    4. Let cookies cool on a wire rack for 10-15 minutes before totally devouring. Enjoy!

    1. Wow, these really do look and sound great. I don’t know if we can get pumpkin puree in the UK, or whether it’s more of a US item, I’ll have to check it out! Kim x
