The pumpkin: This can be canned pumpkin puree or fresh roasted pumpkin. It is moreover okay to substitute an equal value of canned or cooked sweet potato puree.

The oatmeal: Quick oats or rolled oats work, as do quinoa flakes or spelt flakes. I do not recommend trying to substitute steel cut oats here.

Chocolate chips: Use your favorite regular size or mini chocolate chips. I like visionless chocolate chips, but semi sweet or plane white chocolate fries are fine.

Vanilla extract: Be sure to buy pure vanilla extract, not imitation or vanilla flavor. If you prefer to use vanilla stone paste, this is fine.

The fat source: Almond butter or cashew butter are my personal preferences for these healthy cookies. Regular butter (including plant based brands) moreover works.

Oat flour: Most regular grocery stores and health supplies stores should siphon packaged oat flour. Or make your own by pulsing oats in a blender until they turn to flour.

The sweetener: I like raw cane sugar or coconut sugar. Date sugar, white sugar, or brown sugar work as well. Use granulated erythritol for sugar self-ruling pumpkin cookies.

I’ve made these pumpkin oatmeal cookies at least a dozen times now. Most recently, I brought a double batch to a Halloween party.

Every year, I get very into Halloween baking, dreaming up creative costumes… and of undertow eating Halloween snacks (always chocolate snacks for me).

Costumes over previous years have included a sand witch, a Katie bug, Cookie Monster’s girlfriend, the bride of Frankenstein, a 5’3 giraffe, and a monster chef.

Or there was the time I found a five dollar tiger headband at Party City two days surpassing Halloween and brainstormed tiger puns. My favorites were Tiger Woodstock (tiger ears with a hippie costume) and Jungle Gym (tiger ears plus gym clothes). In the end, I went with the jungle gym. The weightier part was getting to wear sneakers all night.

Last year’s holiday costume was plane easier: buy a cat headband at Target, dress all in black, siphon a camera, and repeat everything others say. Photocopy Cat.

Last year, I moreover made Pumpkin Dip and Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars.

Baked or no torch cookies

This year, without discovering that the one can of Libby’s pumpkin I’d placed in my kitchen cabinet had somehow multiplied into six cans, I decided to use some of that pumpkin up by turning my chocolate no torch cookie recipe into no torch pumpkin cookies instead.

My initial plan had been to torch the pumpkin cookies. But obviously I had to taste the dough as I went along, and it turns out these pumpkin cookies are just as good unbaked. So if you live in a warm climate or simply don’t finger like turning on your oven, finger self-ruling to skip the cooking step!

The healthy pumpkin cookies were a big hit at the party, and I’ve since made them three increasingly times for myself.

Yay – now only four cans of pumpkin to use up!

Probably should go buy some increasingly canned pumpkin…
