Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Get excited for Halloween with these Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal cookies! With double the sweetness from chocolate chips AND dried cranberries, you won’t be able to get enough!


Ingredients



  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour or all-purpose flour

  • 1 and 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries


Directions



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.

  2. In a mixing bowl whisk together pumpkin, egg, and vanilla until well combined. In a separate bowl, combine flour, oats, sugars, baking powder, baking soda, salt, spices, chocolate chips, and dried cranberries. Fold together the wet and dry ingredients until just combined – do not overmix. The cookie dough will be very thick. Taste the dough and add a pinch of salt if needed.

  3. Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheets and slightly flatten to the shape you want your cookie. Bake for 12-14 minutes until lightly browned. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for at least 3 minutes and transfer to a wire rack. Cookies stay fresh at room temperature for 3 days in an airtight container.

  4. Gluten-Free: Use almond flour or oat flour instead of whole wheat or all-purpose flour.

  5. Sweetener: Try these with 1/2 cup of coconut sugar instead of the listed brown sugar and granulated sugar. They’re so tasty!
