Healthy Vegan Pumpkin Oat Cookies

Just sweet enough!! Cookie might be a strong word for these, but they are amazing and super nutritious.

Yeah–I’m basic. I like a good pumpkin late and I like a good pumpkin cookie. I don’t like pumpkin candles though. I’m not a psycho. These cookies have minimal ingredients and are from pantry to pie-hole in like 20 minutes.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup wheat flour or gluten free 1:1 substitute
  • 3/4 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup packed coconut sugar or substitute light brown sugar
  • large egg yolk at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup¬†pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

 

Directions:

1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

2: Melt coconut oil on stovetop or in microwave.

3. Mix everything in a medium mixing bowl.

3: With wet hands, or a cookie scoop if civilized (I’m not)…form into 12 cookies.

4: Bake for 10-13 minutes. Let cool.

 

You can store leftovers in the fridge.
