A few of my other pumpkin infused desserts are Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, Pumpkin Hazelnut White Chocolate Biscotti, Pumpkin Butterscotch Bars, Pumpkin Spiced Snickerdoodles and No-Bake Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake.

I think the photo below says it all. My 21 month old had a taste of these cookies before I started photographing them, and later as I was taking my photos, her cute little hand kept getting in my set trying to steal my cookies.

I know lots of you love the Fall and all the pumpkin goodness that comes along with it. I’ve been stocking up on cans of pumpkin for future recipes, so stay tuned! Pumpkin is a little hard to find right now, but soon it will be everywhere. I found canned organic pumpkin in the organic market by me, it was a bit more money but I don’t mind spending extra for organic.

  1. Can’t get enough!! They are awesome! The last batch I added a scant of raisins. So good

  3. Just pulled the first batch out of the oven. Yum! Yum!

  4. I've made three batches of these cookies in five days, and I'm not even sorry. This may be one of the best Skinnytaste recipes I have ever made!

  5. These were delicious – thanks for another great recipe! I made mine without pecans, since I am not a big fan (down to 122 calories per 2 cookies!). I also had no parchment paper and found that aluminum foil sprayed with some cooking spray worked fine as well.

  6. These are great. I used old fashion rolled oats and added cinnamon chips. l love your recipes. One of my favorite for apple season is the apple cranberry crumble.

  9. Thanks, Gina! These were A-mazing! I also made some without nuts and some with nuts and mini chocolate chips. They are delicious.

  10. I just made these with a couple of modifications; first I don't usually have regular brown sugar so I used organic coconut palm sugar with a bit of raw sugar because I did't have enough of the palm. I also used 1/3c pecans and 1/4c mini chocolate chips. I must have made mine much smaller than yours, I got 44 cookies. So the points + count is 3pts/2cookies. And delish!! I also just made the pumpkin banana bread into muffins and added mini chocolate chips instead of pecans. Yummooooo also!! Love your recipes and your site. Thanks for sharing!!

  11. I have made these cookies several times and even my pickiest eater loves them! My family grabs them in the morning for a quick breakfast treat. I used walnuts and I added a few chocolate chips once. No matter how I make them, the base of oatmeal and pumpkin make them delicious. I forgot to mention that baking is not my best strength, but even I can do these. I look forward to trying more of your recipes. They are easy, healthy and delicious – all things I can get on board with.

  12. These were delicious! I added chocolate chips to a few cookies and they were even better. My warning: you might need to increase the baking time by several minutes.

  13. These are great – hearty & not too sweet. Yum!

  14. My mom and I just made these and sorry but not
    Impressed at all . We
    Did substitute Splenda brown and white for
    The reg. sugar . They were dry lumps of oats on the cookie
    Sheet . The pecans just
    Fell out cause they were so dry and we used a
    Extra Tbsp of pumpkin , now
    The flavor was good . Not sure what went wrong but we tried .

  15. I made these for our Christmas brunch and my mom said she liked them even better than her oatmeal cookies!! WOW. what a compliment. I also used Gluten Free flour : ) thanks so much

  16. Can I use your pumpkin butter for this?
