These cookies are AMAZING! I love regular pumpkin chocolate chip cookies but these are even better! I love the texture the oats add to the cookie. And the best part is they are healthier as well. This recipe uses part whole flour and part all-purpose flour and uses less butter than most regular pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. If you love pumpkin and oats, you will love these cookies!
How pretty is the dough?! I just want to eat it up instead of baking it!
I’ve made this recipe a couple of times and I experimented with making it a little healthier. I made it with 1/4 cup less granulated sugar and added a few tablespoons of wheat germ. It was just as good and healthier! Either way you make these, you will love it!
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
- ¾ tsp cinnamon
- ½ cup butter, softened
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 cup canned pumpkin
- 1 ¾ cup rolled oats
- 1 ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees
- In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugars, salt, baking soda, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
- Mix in butter, mixing until crumbly.
- Stir in egg and pumpkin. Then the rolled oats and chocolate chips.
- Drop heaping spoonfuls onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silpat.
- Bake 10-12 minutes.
*Healthier version: Reduce the amount of granulated sugar to 1/2 cup and add 2-3 tablespoons of wheat germ.
