large cookies or more smaller ones

Big, plump, moist oatmeal cookie with pumpkin spices and chocolate chips. These have a more cake-like texture than a plain oatmeal cookie and a whole lot of flavor.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup quick cooking rolled oats, uncooked

  • 1 teaspoon baking Soda

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 large egg, slightly beaten

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin

  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Grease baking sheets or line with parchment paper. Combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; set aside. Beat together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, mix. Alternate additions of dry ingredients and pumpkin, mixing well after each addition. Stir in chocolate pieces. For each cookie, drop 1/4 cup of dough onto prepared baking sheet. Bake 20 to 25 minutes until firm and lightly browned. For more, smaller cookies, bake them a shorter amount of time. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Absolutely ADORE these cookies!!!! They're one of my favorites (I can't choose a single favorite because it depends what I'm in the mood for). My family loves them too. I've added chopped walnuts to the recipe and they're great that way as well. I actually prefer using mini chocolate chips rather than the normal sized chips, as I think it lets the pumpkin shine a bit more. Yum yum yum!!!

These cookies were delicous! Absolutely fantastic. I used a whole 15 oz can of pumpkin and they are nice and moist. (I also added a few more chocolate chips!) But I have had many requests for the recipe! Overall, a total winner!

These are fantastic. I love pumpkin. They are cakier then a regular oatmeal cookie. Next time I'll put more oats in them. Amazing the way they are too!

I used to make these cookies 25 years ago and lost the recipe. No one in my family had it, but the first site I find is yours and you have the exact recipe I remember. Thanks, Liz

Yum! I use white chocolate chips in place of semi sweet. I also add 1 tsp pumpkin spice and 1/2 tsp nutmeg to the flour mixture.

I make these every year. I add a whole can of pumpkin though. Also, I add more chocolate chips and I add either chopped walnuts or pecans to it. Plus, I put numeg and ginger and a little bit of pumpkin spice to it. All the other ingredients I keep the same and the cookies come out wonderfully. They are large and fluffy and almost cake like. Plus, you can really taste the pumpkin without it being overpowering. Everyone I know loves it when I make these.
