Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies with Dark Chocolate Chips and Cranberries

Tonight, I just wanted to make good ol' pumpkin cookies (with chocolate chips as requested by the hubby) without  having to draft a recipe and hope that it works out. So I turned to my good friend google and found this fabulous recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod!

Since I am a semi-clean chef and dietitian, I swapped out the AP flour for white whole wheat flour and the semi-sweet chocolate chips for the dark chocolate variety! You know me, gotta have the whole grains and antioxidants in my treats!

Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies with Dried Cranberries & Chocolate Chips

Yield: 3 dozen cookies
Cook Time: 12 minutes



2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon all ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup pure pumpkin puree
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup dried cranberries


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, and salt. Set dry ingredients aside.
3. In a large mixer bowl, beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla extract. Beat until combined. Gradually add flour mixture and mix until ingredients are incorporated.
4. Stir in oats, chocolate chips, and dried cranberries. Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet.
5. Bake cookies for about 12 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
