We have had some pretty chilly nights the past few days, which is a true telling that fall is surely coming! Most nights are filled with soccer games, hot soups, and cuddles on the couch. It’s definitely one of my favorite times of the year! My husband and kids enjoy all the yummy goodies that are sitting on the counter during the Fall and Winter seasons. One of my kids’ favorite things to eat are cookies. I bet this sounds familiar to most people. These pumpkin chocolate chip oatmeal cookies became a family favorite after the first batch! Normally you think of raisins when you make oatmeal cookies but the chocolate flavor paired with pumpkin is delicious! Add some chocolate chips and they are the best cookies you will ever taste.

We brought these pumpkin chocolate chip oatmeal cookies to a friend’s house the day I made them and I brought the plate back empty! They are soft but not fall apart soft. The texture is light but packed with amazing flavor! If you aren’t a fan of chocolate, just leave the chocolate chips out or substitute them for another delicious topping. The chocolate chips are the best part in my opinion.
How to Make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
Making these soft pumpkin cookies is very similar to traditional chocolate chip cookies, just add pumpkin and oatmeal! This easy recipe is just as delicious and can be enjoyed any time of year but are best in the fall during pumpkin spice season. Here’s how simple they are:
- In a small mixing bowl, beat together your butter, sugar, and brown sugar.
- Add the pumpkin purée and mix until everything is combined.
- Add your remaining ingredients and mix until well blended. Pro tip: for best results don’t overmix, just enough to combine everything together.
- Drop onto non-stick cookie sheets or a sheet pan and bake for 14-15 minutes at 350 degrees.
- Let cool on a cooling rack and enjoy!
These chewy cookies are an amazing treat for parties, get together, bake sales, or just for fun! We store them on the counter in an airtight container or a plastic bag until they are gone. They don’t last very long in our house. Enjoy the soft cookies with a cold glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee!
Why are My Oatmeal Cookies Always Flat?
Sometimes oatmeal cookies turn out a little flat when the dough is placed on a hot baking sheet. To avoid this, use parchment paper as a barrier. It separates the butter from the hot pan. The cookies get flat when the butter in the mixture melts too quickly. Hopefully, this will help you obtain fluffier cookies.
Are Oatmeal Cookies Healthier Than Normal Cookies?
I like to think oatmeal cookies are the healthiest of all cookies because of the fiber content from the oats. I know that oatmeal contains potassium, magnesium, iron, and calcium, so that’s always a plus! Add in the positive health benefits of canned pumpkin and I’d say these are pretty healthy cookies compared to a sugar cookie!
Can I Freeze My Baked Cookies?
You can freeze almost any cookie, and these are no exception. Simply bake the cookies like normal, let them cool completely, and then store them in a freezer bag. When you are ready to enjoy them, take them out of the freezer and let them thaw at room temperature. They usually keep well in the freezer for about 2 months.
How Long Will Pumpkin Cookie Dough Last in the Fridge?
You can refrigerate most cookie dough for about 5 days before you need to use it. Just make the dough a few days ahead and store in the fridge in an airtight container or covered in plastic wrap. Let the dough thaw a little before beginning the baking process.
