Pumpkin oatmeal cookies are chewy and a little bit crispy, with the perfect amount of pumpkin spice flavor. Make this delicious and cozy fall cookie anytime you’re craving pumpkin!.


  • Oven
  • parchment paper
  • Silicone spatula
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Medium sized mixing bowl
  • Cookies scoop (1 1/2 tablespoons dough)


  • ½ cup butter softened
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree- blotted blot the pumpkin with a paper towel, see notes for more details.
  • 1 cups flour
  • ¾ cup rolled oats sometimes these are called “old fashioned oats”
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Layer a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl cream together the butter and the white and brown sugar.
  • Add the egg and vanilla to the butter and sugar mixture until mixed. Then stir in the pumpkin to the wet batter.
  • In a medium bowl mix together the flour, oatmeal, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  • Stir the dry flour and oatmeal mixture into the wet pumpkin batter a little at a time just until a dough forms and all their is no visable flour.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips into the cookie dough.
  • Chill the dough for 30 minutes in the refridgerator.
  • Drop batter with a cookie scoop by the spoonful onto the cookie sheet covered in parchment paper.
  • Bake for 18-21 minutes until cookies are soft and chewy, then enjoy!


  • The butter should be soft enough if you press your finger into it, there is an indentation. Try chopping it into 8-12 pieces to speed up the softening, and then leaving it on the counter to soften for 5-10 minutes.
  • These aren’t super chocolatey cookies to let the pumpkin spice flavors and chewiness of the oatmeal shine. If you prefer more chocolate add a little more chocolate chips to the batter.
  • You can also substitute nuts for the chocolate chips, or leave them out entirely. Chopped walnuts or chopped pecans are both delicious in these cookies. I also like dried cranberries in this cookie.
  • The most common standard-sized cookie scoops use about 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough. If scoops with a spoon, measure the first dough ball and then make the rest about the same size.
