Tips to Make the Best Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies


The quality of the pumpkin will make a big difference in the taste of your cookies. Opt for a good quality pumpkin puree when making this recipe.

2. Extras add-ins

You can easily customize these cookies to please everyone’s taste buds, or to simply give yourself some variety.

3. Use ice-cream scoops

Measure dough by using ice-cream scoops. This will allow for each cookie to be the same size and to bake uniformly.

4. Use fresh ingredients

Not that anyone purposely uses expired ingredients, but using ingredients past their prime can impact how your cookie bakes.

If you’ve had flours or baking soda that’s been sitting around for a while, double-check to make sure it’s still within its best by date.

How To Store Healthy Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

These pumpkin oatmeal cookies can be stored at room temperature for a few days, in the fridge for 5-7 days, or in the freezer for up to 2 months!

This is another great meal prep recipe because you can double the recipe and have extras on hand to pull out of the freezer whenever you need them.

These could also make a great pre/post workout snack.

A couple Substitutions You could use for this recipe

Can I use quick oats instead of rolled oats?

Yes, you can. Your cookie will be less chunky (because of the different sizes in oats) and it will be more soft and chewy.

However, steel cut oats will NOT work for this recipe.

What if I don’t have oat flour?

You can easily make your own! Simply place rolled oats in a high-speed blender and blend until the oats become a flour consistency, blending to as fine as of a consistency as possible.
