After making about ten bazillion batches of these healthy pumpkin muffins, I was ready to try something a little different. Still on the same track – healthy and pumpkin and all. But more…well…cookies.

Those muffins were pretty much the only thing I could get my little guy to eat for a week straight while he was sick so when I’m saying ten bazillion batches, the exaggerating is not as dramatic as you think. Okay, nevermind, it’s way dramatic. But I did make a lot of batches!

So what are you getting with these cookies? Intense pumpkin flavor with a hint of cinnamon, a chewy cake-like texture, creamy melted chocolate, and above all – a healthy treat that feels indulgent, but isn’t! Well, maybe the amount of chocolate packed in these is a little indulgent, but moderation in all things right?! 🙂

I started these cookies trying to make them with some peanut butter, but didn’t love the combination – it kind of overtook the pumpkin. So peanut butter haters, rejoice – these have no nut butters in them! And yet, they still hold together extremely well – they aren’t crumbly at all!


  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin not pumpkin pie filling
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup oat flour oats that have been blended
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or milk chocolate, semi-sweet, or nuts
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chunks optional


  1. In a bowl, beat together the pumpkin, honey, egg, and vanilla extract. Beat in the brown sugar.
  2. In another bowl, stir together the cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, salt, and oat flour.
  3. Oat flour is just old-fashioned or quick oats that have been blended in a blender or food processor until they are at a flour consistency. **Make sure to measure the oat flour AFTER blending the oats and not before **
