Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

Soft and chewy Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies filled with aromatic spices and crunchy peanuts are the perfect Fall treat. These cookies are made with all wholesome HEALTHY ingredients and refined sugar-free. Make a double bunch because these pumpkin-flavored cookies are super addictive.

I’m absolutely crazy about PUMPKINS! Don’t know what happened to me, but I’ve never EVER craved and LOVED pumpkin so much like this season. I used to think about pumpkins that they are just some simple seasonal produce best fitted only for making soups and stews. Ok, maybe some dessert occasionally too. I even used to hate people posting on their FB feeds – pumpkin this, pumpkin that… pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins! I was like – what’s the fuss about all these pumpkins. Please, shut UP! But this season, I honestly don’t know what happened. I changed my opinion about pumpkins, like completely. Now I’m one of those pumpkin-loving-crazy people. But, honestly, can you blame us? Pumpkins are so soooo good! 

I went on this pumpkin rampage, about month ago, and since then I have fresh pumpkin puree in my fridge like all the time. So you can assume, I add pumpkin puree in everything. In my overnight oats for breakfast, in my cooked Pumpkin Polenta for lunch, in my Pumpkin Oatmeal Smoothie… and of course in oh so heavenly sweet and delicious desserts – Pumpkin Loaf Cake and Pumpkin Cheesecake Muffins.

Since my family is super crazy about my yummy Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies and irresistible Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies, I decided to give pumpkin puree a GO in Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies. I wasn’t disappointed by the outcome at all. Nor was my family AND loved guests that came by our house that weekend. We all enjoyed that afternoon. You can be sure of that.

To make these delicious Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies, you will only need a few simple ingredients and 20 minutes of your time. You can involve your kids in making to make it more fun. Isn’t that GREAT, or what?! It is one of those cookie recipes that can be easily prepared and just as quickly those cookies will disappear from a cookie jar.

To make these cookies I used whole grain ingredients – rolled oats full of healthy dietary fibers that promotes weight-loss and good heart health, and whole wheat flour. I also added some roughly chopped raw PEANUTS in the mixture. Peanuts enriched cookies with healthy omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and some essential minerals.

I spiced these Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies with beautiful warm and fragrant Fall spices – Ceylon cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg. I used my special spice blend for that. So-called Pumpkin Spice Mix, that I created especially for pumpkin recipes. 

Instead of butter, I used healthy coconut oil, and to sweet up cookies I used natural sweetener – honey. You can totally substitute honey for maple syrup or stevia. To make these cookies like really REALLY irresistible, I topped the cookies with some melted dark chocolate. Bitter-sweet dark chocolate and sweet pumpkin flavors are like the ultimate combo. Now you definitely can’t say no to these cookies. And you have a legitimate reason – these are HEALTHY, nutritious, refined sugar-free, full of PUMPKIN flavour + topped with chocolate! Oh my… YUMMY!
