Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • PUMPKIN Benefits: High in Vitamin A and Fiber; Low in Fat

  • Ingredients...
  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 bag chocolate chips

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • Beat butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together in a bowl until creamy. Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla extract; beat until smooth.
  • Mix flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl; stir into creamed butter until combined. 
  • Fold chocolate chips into batter. 
  • Drop 1 to 2 tablespoons batter for each cookie onto a baking sheet.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the edges of each cookie are lightly browned if you like them sort of crispy, 10 to 12 minutes. bake 7-10 minutes if you like them moist and fluffy.

TIPS: Things I discovered recently...
  • Don't have butter: use oil
  • Don't have brown sugar: use white sugar and add a little maple syrup or whatever syrup you have in the house
