Have you jumped on the pumpkin bandwagon, yet, this year? I know I look forward to pumpkin recipes all year long. Once September hits, it’s all I can do to not make every recipe a pumpkin recipe. Ha! Especially when it comes to dessert and snack recipes. There’s something so comforting about having a soft pumpkin spiced cookie on a chilly fall day alongside my cup of coffee or tea.
Mmmmmm, oh my word and these are so good. The kids really love them too and I find myself always wanting more. Fortunately, this recipe is super easy to make and guilt-free, so these are going to be happening often in our house.

This recipe is easy and fast! Just 1 bowl, simple methods, and 20 minutes start to finish (cooking and all). And they just so happen to be soooo moist, so tender, so sweet, so spicy, so tasty… SO DREAMY… just without butter, sugar, or oil.
I can’t wait for you guys to try these cookies. And I also can’t wait to whip them up again! They’re:
Soft and chewy
& so very perfect for fall!
They pair wonderfully with a steamy cup o’ joe, make an excellent 4pm snack, and are perfectly acceptable to squeeze in right before midnight. Not speaking from experience or anything… 😉

These Skinny Pumpkin Protein Cookies are perfectly soft with just the right amount of pumpkin and spice! These cookies are incredibly simple to make and at just under 50 calories per cookie you can't go wrong - even if you ate two or three in one sitting!
- 1 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats or 1 cup oat flour
- 1/4 cup protein powder or additional 1/4 cup oat flour
- 3/4 cup sweetener that measures like sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or additional cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
- 1 large egg white
- 1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips for topping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper. Set aside.
If using rolled oats, use a food processor or blender to grind them to a flour-like consistency.
In a medium mixing bowl, mix together dry ingredients.
Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and stir together wet ingredients. Then stir the entire mixture together. It will seem very dry at first, keep stirring. It will become batter-like eventually.
Scoop 1/8 cup (or 2 tablespoons) of dough onto baking sheet per cookie. Flatten them out slightly, as they don't spread much. Sprinkle with a few chocolate chips if desired before baking, and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until set. Enjoy!
