Spiced Pumpkin Oat Cookies


I've been spoiling my coworkers by bringing in lots of vegan goodies lately. I wanted to try a new recipe out, and another vegan coworker overheard me. She sent me a super easy recipe by The Burlap Bag (a blog and store based here in Austin, as well!). I was so excited to try this recipe out for myself and decided to amp it up with some spices and add-ins. So here's the result!

Spiced Pumpkin Oat Cookies
yields 4 dozen

2 cans of whole pumpkin
2 tsp. cinnamon
dash ground cloves
1 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. all spice
2/3 cup coconut palm sugar
1/2 bag dairy free chocolate chips
2 1/2 cups rolled oats

1. Preheat oven to 350 and combine pumpkin and spices in a large bowl.
2. Stir in the sugar and chocolate chips.
3. Add in the rolled oats.
4. Drop small round balls of the dough onto a 9x13 with parchment paper.
5. Press down balls with a spoon.
6. Bake for 15 minutes.

    1. Yeah, I definitely don't feel guilty when I have six. I make them ping pong ball sized so that they are bite-sized!

  4. This is funny to me because I made oatmeal raisin cookies yesterday (an oil-based recipe) and a few hours later as I was munching away I remarked to my husband: I wonder if I could replace the oil with pumpkin.

    And lo, this recipe. I'm going to try it soon!

    1. These are super chewy. Be sure to flatten them down before popping them in the oven, or you'll have a choclate-y mess. I make them ping pong ball sized so they go a little further!
