It 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!
- 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
- 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.
- 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.

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!
Adore these cookies! I put white chocolate chips in them and we ate them all up so fast! They were a hit with the neighbors as well. Thanks for sharing the recipe! What a delicious fall treat.

Love these! I made them last week and am making them again today. Last time I used quick oats. Would they be okay with Old Fashioned Oats? Thanks!

Wow!! These were delicious! I only baked them for 12 minutes because I like my cookies gooey. They were a big hit at home and at work.
Maria Delgado says
I just baked these cookies and they turned out amazing!! Thanks for sharing!
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!
How many ounces does the can of pumpkin need to be?
Oopsies one cup! 😉 Haha sorry 🙂 just read more carefully!
Heather Gines says
No worries!! Glad you figured it out 🙂

Hi! Your cookie recipe looks awesome! Could you please guide me as to which type of oatsquick oats or rolled oats? Thank you for your valuable time.

So sorry we’ve taken a minute to get back to to you. But I always just use the quick oats. The mix in well with all the other ingredients. I’m sure the old fashion oats would work fine as well.
Very tasty but more like a muffin than a cookie. Super soft and moist.
Made these cookies today. Love the moisture that the pumpkin provides. I made some plain and then added pecans and orange scented craisins to the last half of the batch. The flavor of the pumpkin is so mild any stir in would be perfect. Next time I make them I will try craisins and white chocolate chips…yummy
Great cookies used nuts & chocolate chips baked 12 minutes.,Made 1/2 recipe because had cup of pumpkin left from another recipe!!! Awesome
