oatmeal pumpkin cookies
Fall is in the air, you guys! And pumpkin flavor, too! I always wait for this season because of the pumpkin spice! Today I am sharing a healthy cookie recipe. If you have small kids this easy cookie will make a fabulous yummy and healthy snack!
It has healthy and nutritious ingredients.
The original recipe that I  found last year had regular all-purpose flour listed.
As my hubby going through a significant change in his life { workouts, proper diet and all that } I made these cookies with oat flour so that he could have some of this goodness too.
I grind some rolled oats using my coffee grinder, but you can easily find oat flour at any grocery store if you make my version. Of course, you can just use old fashioned flour as well!
 Did you know that pumpkins are very nutritious?

Full of antioxidants and vitamins, and extremely high in fiber that is so good for your body!

These cookies may not look very smooth and attractive because the oat has a different consistency than regular flour, but are truly very very tasty.
I made the white cream cheese glaze for the top { I LOVED them on my cookies }, but you can definitely eat them without it too.
 After laying them on a cookie sheet, I used my fork to make them flat.

  1. Aniko,
    What perfect timing, I’m looking for good for you, tempting nibbles
    for my brother/best friend who is terminally ill and finding eating a chore.
    I ground the oats as you suggested and because eating is hard I used a teaspoon
    to put the cookie mixture on the tray. It was the perfect size, he ate 4 with his mug
    of Fennel tea!
    So very grateful for your sharing and being able to get canned pumpkin puree in UK 🙂

  2. Aniko,
    Your photographs are wonderful and these cookies look very tasty. I like to make muffins with soaked oats, but I have never tried to make oat flour for cookies. I'm glad to follow you on Tasty Tuesdays!
    Thank you.
