Let’s talk oatmeal cookies!
Many cringe at the thought of an oatmeal cookie. However, I feel as though that’s from having underwhelming experiences with oatmeal cookies lol. Always keep in mind though, there is a bad version of everything out there. If an oatmeal cookie is done right, it’s one of those things you’ll find yourself craving!
My favorite part about an oatmeal cookie, is that it’s not only nostalgic, but filling, packs fiber, and you don’t even need white flour!
When thinking of the next best oatmeal cookie, I knew we had to do a Pumpkin flavor! Not just pumpkin spice seasoning, but real pumpkin! Yes, I’m one of those people that loves to play around with pumpkin in dishes. It’s perfect in both savory and sweet, and is perfect for capturing the essence of fall.
To date we’ve done endless pumpkin recipes, but the thought of an oatmeal cookie seemed like a win. Cinnamon pairs well with oats, a hint of sweet with the raisins, you could even throw in chopped pecans and dark chocolate to tie it all in together.
If you know me, you know I’m all about revamping childhood staples and putting a healthy spin on them. This version packs no white flour, less added sugar, peanut butter, real pumpkin no eggs, and all you need is a flax egg! The cookie holds together seamlessly with just a flax egg, has crisp edges, but still remains soft. Bonus, it features stevia sweetened chocolate chips, notes of cinnamon and pumpkin spice!
These cookies are great for countless reasons. They are quick, easy, feature minimal ingredients, features kitchen staples, they have texture, pack fiber and protein, require only a flax egg, are gluten free, dairy free, egg free, the chocolate chips are sweetened with stevia, oil free, made with oat flour, have minimal added sugar, have notes of cinnamon and pumpkin, can easily be made in bulk, you can throw in chopped pecans, skip the raisins if preferred and they are perfect for fall!
