Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies
I cannot get enough of these soft ooey gooey Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies. Let’s just say these pumpkin cookies are slightly addicting- you definitely can’t just have one. They’re pretty healthy, though, so that’s okay!
As you can see, I decided to go ahead and jump on the pumpkin bandwagon. Everybody else was doing it… peer pressure… what’s a girl to do? The truth is, I’ve been craving these pumpkin cookies for quite sometime. I first made these two years ago and not only did I want to satisfy my craving, but I also wanted to update the photos and tweak the recipe a bit. Feel free to share these with all your friends, too, (if there’s any left) because they’re kid-friendly, gluten-free and vegan.
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies (vegan & gluten-free)
- 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats, gluten-free if desired
- 1/4 cup almond meal/flour
- 2 tablespoons coconut sugar or brown sugar
- 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, I used finely shredded coconut
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice, if you don’t have this, sub in cinnamon
- 2 pinches salt
- 2 tablespoons 100% raw local honey, if vegan, substitute with 2 tablespoons coconut sugar or maple syrup
- 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, other oils would work, applesauce could also be substituted, although results may vary with this substitution
- 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips, I use Enjoy Life brand, which are vegan and gluten-free
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and prepare baking sheet with a non-stick spray or oil.
- Mix dry ingredients in a medium to large bowl.
- Stir in wet ingredients and then chocolate chips.
- Spoon out 1-2 tablespoons cookie batter on baking sheet. For a flatter cookie, press batter down and shape with fingers.
- Bake 10-12 minutes.
- After baking allow cookies to cool for about 10 mins and then transfer them onto a cooling rack and cool completely. They are very soft and if you don’t allow them to cool completely they will crumble.

Kim! So excited to find you and these delicious Pumpkin Oatmeal cookies. I love the fact that these are very allergen friendly so everyone could enjoy! Thanks for linking up to Saturday Night Fever! (I’m a new host);-)
Congrats on the new hosting gig!! Thanks for stopping by!
These looks absolutely perfect! I love that they are vegan a GF 😉 pinned!
Two of my very favorite things in the entire world…pumpkin and cookies! (I think I actually drive the pumpkin bandwagon.) Thank you for combining them in such a delicious fashion, I can’t WAIT to try these!
I’m with you and then add chocolate- it’s just too much!
How long do you bake these for? is it actually 10 mins like the recipe description says? Or does that include cool time?
They look great, but I can’t bookmark them since the recipe is incomplete.
Thanks so much for the catch and for letting me know. I’m updating the recipe now. They bake for 10-12 minutes and then cool for about 10 minutes. 😉
I’m not quite on the bandwagon yet but man these cookies are making me wanna be! Can’t wait to make them!
I def. love me some soft cookies! I”m still trying to master how to make them soft, mine end up slightly hard! 🙁 Baking fail!
thanks for a great recipe!
I love soft cookies too and these come out really soft and chewy. I think you’d be a fan!
Serious yum!! I would never be able to manage only eating 1 of these! It’s basically fall here. I’m sad about it but the pumpkin is easing my pain!
Never just one cookie- it’s just impossible!
I’m so ready for pumpkin! The Hubby made pumpkin waffles today that were pretty good and just made me want to make MORE pumpkin flavored foods. I’m holding off though so I don’t get burnt out. Although, how can you get burnt out on pumpkin!?!
Oh my goodness… pumpkin waffles. You know how much I love me some waffles! 🙂
I promised myself that I’d hold off until September before busting out the pumpkin, and since we’re already a week into September… well… 😉 I whipped up a batch of pumpkin muffins this weekend, and my house smelled freaking amazing. You can’t go wrong when baking with pumpkin, and these look great, Kim!
These look amazing, I am always up for some pumpkin!
