How to Make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
These cookies are easy to make and easy to clean up. You won’t have to worry about making a mess in your kitchen since they just require one bowl + a baking sheet to cook. Let’s get started!
First, add the ripe bananas to a large bowl. Use a fork to mash the bananas until nearly smooth.
Then, add in the pumpkin purée, coconut sugar, vanilla, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, salt, ginger, and ground cloves. Mix the ingredients together until well combined.
Next, add the rolled oats and oat flour. Mix again to evenly combine.
After, fold in the mini vegan chocolate chips and mix to thoroughly combine.
Line baking sheet(s) with parchment paper or coat with non-stick spray. Use a large cookie scoop to form 10 balls of dough. Then, use clean hands to press each ball of dough into a cookie shape.
Bake the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
Finally, allow the pumpkin chocolate chip oatmeal cookies to cool for a couple minutes before serving. Enjoy with a cold glass of nondairy milk, such as almond or coconut milk!
- Use ripe bananas. You may be wondering how to tell when your bananas are ripe. A perfectly ripe banana will have a yellow peel with brown specks/spots all over it. Ripe bananas are perfect for cookies, banana bread, and baked oatmeal.
- How do you make oat flour? It’s actually quite simple! Just add 1 cup of rolled oats to a high-speed blender or food processor. Process the oats until a fine flour is formed. Try your best to get the flour as fine as possible. Alternatively, you can use store-bought oat flour (I prefer this since it’s a time saver). I love this brand!
- The recipe calls for rolled oats. Although I highly recommend sticking to rolled oats, quick oats will also work.
- I love using mini vegan chocolate chips for these pumpkin chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. You can also use chocolate chunks or omit them altogether. If you’re not a fan of chocolate, try adding crushed nuts or pumpkin seeds instead.
- Keep leftovers stored in the refrigerator. They will keep for 5 days. To reheat, simply microwave for 30 seconds.
