Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies

Pumpkin Cookie Recipe

IOatmeal Pumpkin Cookiest decided to rain all day today, so I thought this was a good opportunity to do some baking.  Looking in my pantry, I saw that I still had several cans of pumpkin puree leftover from last year.  I guess I feel justified now to make something with pumpkin since the air has that fall feel to it.  These Oatmeal pumpkin cookies are one of our favorites!  They are chewy and delicious and they also make the house smell wonderful!!  We like to mix it up and put chocolate chips in them one time, and then the next time we make them we put raisins in them. (My husband loves them with raisins, and my sons love them with chocolate chips..I guess it depends on who is the nicest to me that day, hee hee)  Anyways, these Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies made the perfect treat for a rainy day!

Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Cookies
Serves: 36-42 cookies
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1⅓ cups oatmeal
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • Optional choices: ¾ cup semi sweet chocolate chips, ¾ cup raisins, ½ cup chopped nuts
  1. Mix together the flour, oats, salt, baking soda and cinnamon in a bowl. In a mixing bowl blend together the butter and sugars until fluffy. Add the pumpkin, egg and vanilla extract and mix well. Add the flour mixture and mix. Add your choice of chocolate chips, raisins, nuts or all of them if you like.
  2. Line a large cookie pan with parchment paper. (This really is the best for cooking cookies, they don't stick or brown too fast.) Drop spoonfuls of dough on the pan, I usually will get 12 cookies on one pan, and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 14-16 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. ENJOY!!!

    I don’t like pumpkin pie, but love pumpkin bread so I thought I’d try pumpkin cookies. I found your recipe and made a batch with chocolate chips and a batch with raisins and nuts just like Lucy did and they are wonderful! Thanks for a great recipe!

    Just baked these tonight with my husband. They were delicious! Just enough sweetness, and the oatmeal blended so well. I had tried a healthy pumpkin oatmeal muffin recipe last week that didn’t go over well (not sweet enough, tough and chewy), so making these made me believe in pumpkin again. Thanks for the recipe!
