Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

Nothing says fall like pumpkin spice or the smell of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven.

One of my favorite things to bake is cookies— I could probably eat cookies every day. 😋

Do you have any fun memories of baking as a kid? Mine was always licking the spoon after my mom mixed the batter. Even though she warned me about the raw egg, she would let me have a few licks anyway.

I don’t recommend eating cookies every day, but if you make them yourself, you know exactly what you’re eating.

Every dessert I make is a healthier version of a regular dessert recipe or one I make up entirely. After so many years of baking this way, I’ve become used to less sugary desserts and treats.

  • 1/4-1/2 cup oats

I find it easiest to use the dough at room temperature. If you refrigerate any unused dough, let the dough sit at room temperature to soften before you bake again.
