2 Ingredient Pumpkin & Oatmeal Cookie!


So once again I had a leftover can of pumpkin in the fridge. I was craving carbs the other day, so I decided to try out an oatmeal cookie recipe that I thought of. It is similar to the banana bread cookie recipe I made a while back, but this one uses pumpkin!
I had no idea how the cookie would come out, or taste, but I Marc and I enjoyed them. They are even kid & dog friendly (minus the chocolate). These cookies have no added fat so if you are looking for more substance I would definitely add some crushed walnuts.
Now, I am sure you are probably questioning how a 2 ingredient cookie works, so check it out…
1 cup Pumpkin
1 cup Quick Oats
Combine ingredients in a medium size bowl. Here is the fun part. Add in your choice of fix-ins. I added 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice, and 2 tbsp sprinkle of mini chocolate chips on top!
You could also use nuts, raisins, almond butter, etc.
This recipe should make about 12 cookies. Scoop out the dough onto a baking sheet into 12 even cookies. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or until cooked through.
** if you are looking for a dessert these would be great crumbled over some vanilla yogurt!**
 These Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies are best served warm and right out of the oven!
Per 3 cookie serving, approximately 98 calories, 3.8g fiber, 3.4g protein (this is including chocolate chips)
Are you pumpkin crazy like me? 
What is your favorite way to enjoy pumpkin?

  1. How simple and delicious! I bet these are the perfect snack for kiddos!

  2. It’s like you know how many ingredients my life can handle combining.

    I’ve been super into pumpkin, but I’ve been seeing it a lot less than other squash around here. So I’ve mostly been cramming delicata into my face.

    Great recipe!

  3. Simple & delicious = my kind of recipe. Thanks for sharing, lady!
