Vegan Pumpkin-Oatmeal-Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Let me introduce you to your new favorite cookie to bake. I started playing around with vegan pumpkin-oatmeal-chocolate chunk cookies during the past month, and have come to a nice mashup between recipes online.

They are delicious. They are cakey. They are not too sweet. They are amazing dipped in coffee. Enjoy!

Vegan pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies

Yeilds – a lot of cookies, and all depends on the size of cookies you make

Ingredients:
2.5 cups of all purpose flour
1.5 cups of rolled oats
1.5 cups of sugar
1 cup of Earth Balance, melted (OR 2/3 cups of vegetable oil)
1 can of pumpkin puree (not pie filling!)
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
cinnamon and nutmeg to taste (I like lots)
2-3 tablespoons of molasses (depending on how much you like molasses)
2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla
1.5 cups of chocolate chips or chunks*

*the store was out of chocolate chips when I was getting ingredients, so I purchased a 1 lb bar of dark chocolate and used a knife to chop flakes/chunks to use instead.

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • mix dry ingredients, except chocolate chips/chunks
  • mix wet ingredients
  • fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients
  • mix in chocolate chips/chunks
  • scoop dough and place on ungreased cookie sheet approx 1.5 inches apart, flattening the dough
  • bake for approx 15 minutes or until the bottom edges are slightly browned
