Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup Butter
  • 1/4 Cup Canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar (Granulated)
  • 2 Tbsp Light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 1/2 Vanilla Extract
  • 3/4 Cup Old fashioned oats
  • 2/3 Cup All purpose flour
  • 1 tsp All spice powder
  • 1 tsp Ground (Cloves+Nutmeg+Cardamom+Black pepper)
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Chocolate chunks
  • 1/2 Cup Raisins
  • 1/4 Cup Pepitas

Instructions

  • 1. Add melted butter, both sugars, pumpkin puree and maple syrup in a medium sized mixing bowl and whisk everything to combine. Add in vanilla.
    2. Now mix in oats. Sift flour, spices, salt and baking soda over the wet ingredients and fold just until combined.
    3. Fold in chocolate chunks, pepitas and raisins, saving a few to press on top.
    4. Form 8 equal sized balls from the dough and and flatten them as shown in the post description image. Press the remaining raisins, chocolate and pepita seeds on them. Place them on a baking tray and chill for about 2-3 hours in the refrigerator.
    5. Preheat your oven to 350 deg F when ready to bake the cookies, place the sheet in your oven and bake for about 10-12 minutes. They might look slightly undone in the centers, but don't over bake them.
    6. Let them cool on the baking tray. The cookies taste even chewier the next day!

Notes

  1. I love a lot of spices in my pumpkin cookies, you may adjust them to your liking.
  2. The cookies will stay fresh at room temperature in an air tight container for 5-6 days. Baked/unbaked cookies can be frozen for upto 3 months. Bake the frozen cookies for an extra minute. No need to thaw.
