Gluten-Free Oatmeal Pumpkin Spice Cookies


There are lots of sweet sweets this time of year.  These cookies are nice to have on hand for gluten free guests or for people looking for something that is a little on the healthy side.  I make this same recipe with bananas in place of the pumpkin and can then leave the sugar out making for a great breakfast cookie.  Also, up to 1 cup raisins, chopped dates or chopped nuts can be added.

Gluten-Free Oatmeal Pumpkin Spice Cookies

  • 2 1/2 cups pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups oatmeal (ground or whole)

In a medium bowl, cream together pumpkin, sugar and butter.  Add remaining ingredients and stir until thoroughly combined.  Drop by rounded teaspoon on to a non-stick or greased baking sheet.  Press cookies down to flatten slightly.  Bake in a preheated 350º oven, 15-18 minutes.

Thanks for being my taste tester today Julie!
