To begin, you’ll need to preheat your oven to 350 and line two pans with parchment paper. I especially recommend using parchment paper with soft cookies so they are easier to remove from the pan after baking.
Now, in a small mixing bowl add your dry ingredients and stir them together. Easy peasy right? This would be your flour, baking soda, salt and pumpkin spice seasoning.
You can use store bought pumpkin spice seasoning, or make your own.
If you do make your own, I recommend that you use high quality seasonings. It’s a real bummer to take a bite out of a cookie that isn’t quite seasoned enough, and using cheap seasonings won’t quite get you where you wanna be.
These gluten-free Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies are soft cookies with oats and Fall spices throughout. They’re the BEST easy Fall cookie!
- 1 tbsp pumpkin spice seasoning
- 1/2 cup butter, or coconut oil (for dairy-free)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 cup all purpose gluten-free flour (I use Bob's 1-to-1 all purpose)
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1 cup oats, certified gluten-free
- To begin, preheat your oven to 350 and line two baking pans with parchment paper.
- In a small mixing bowl add your flour, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin spice seasoning and stir them together till well combined.
- In a large mixing bowl, add your butter and sugars and "cream" together with a hand blender for a minute or two. Add to the bowl your pumpkin, vanilla and egg and briefly blend them in with the rest of the ingredients.
- Pour your dry ingredients into the large bowl with your wet ingredients and stir them together till they are well combined. Finally, add your oats into the bowl and gently fold them into the batter.
- Scoop your dough onto the pans, evenly spread apart, for no more than 12 cookies per pan. Leave cookies as is for thick cookies, or spread each cookies out (wider and thinner) with a spatula if you would like thinner cookies, as these cookies don't spread much.
- Bake in the oven for 12-14 minutes, or till the cookies have set around the edges and on top.
- Let cool and devour!
