Ingredients

  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup oat flour*
  • ½ cup ground flaxseed meal
  • 1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ cup dried cranberries or dried cherries
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together oats, oat flour, flaxseed, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together pumpkin, maple syrup, and butter until smooth. Add egg and vanilla and beat until well combined.
  • With the mixer on low speed, mix in dry ingredients. Mix in dried cranberries (or cherries) and walnuts, if using.
  • Scoop dough by heaping tablespoons and place on parchment-lined baking sheets. Gently flatten each cookie with your fingers. Bake for 14-15 minutes. Cookies will keep at room temperature for a few days or for a few months when stored in an airtight container (such as a zip-top bag) in the freezer.

Notes

*You can make your own oat flour in your food processor. For 1 cup of oat flour, process 1 heaping cup of old-fashioned oats until finely ground, about 1 minute.
