This recipe looks like it has a lot of ingredients, but it is all stuff a kitchen normally has. It has a nice cinnamony flavor that I adore. You can substitute chocolate chips or nuts for the raisins.

These cookies are fabulous! I did make some adjustments based on other reviews I read. I added 1 1/2 cup oatmeal (total) 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp pumpkin spice in lieu of the cinnamon 1 cup chopped walnuts 1/4 zante currants 1 tsp vanilla and 1 15oz can 100% pumpkin puree and all brown sugar (instead of 1/2 white & 1/2 brown). I used a mellon baller to measure out the cookies and the total cooking time approx. 13 mins per batch. I will make these again and again!:) Read More

These had really good flavor but I was hoping for something a little more dense. They are more cake like. Which is not bad but not what I was looking for. Read More

Yummy pumpkin cookies! I changed a few things...applesauce instead of butter a little pumpkin spice 1/2 whole wheat flour. They were very sticky so i was a little worried...but they just needed to be baked a tad longer. (11-12min) They turned out great and low in fat and high in fiber! Read More

This is one of my all time favorite cookies. I JUST made these and I couldn't stop eating them. I do agree that they need to be cooked a bit longer closer to 12 minutes. The only adjustments I made was to omit the raisins and adding 2 TBSP of ground flax seed. I LOVE the flavor flax provides not to mention the added protein and other benefits. I think next time I will try to make a healthier version using more oats and applesauce instead of oil. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I believe it will become a family tradition in my home.

I like other reviewers used applesauce instead of butter. I also added pumpkin pie spice along with the cinnamon to add something extra. The only thing I had to change was the cooking time. I had to keep them in the oven for at least 14 minutes. The two batches that were in for 12 minutes were more like muffin tops in texture which may be great if you want them like that. If you want a more cookie texture add baking time. The recipe was very tasty despite the muffin consitency and made my house smell great! Read More

Absolutely awesome. They were a little cakey but in a really good way. ADD EXTRA CINNAMON or better yet some PUMPKIN PIE SPICE.. they are incredibly good. We can see how some people would want to increase the baking time but we like cookies slightly underdone so this was perfect. Read More

These are great cookies!! I didn't have raisins or chocolate chips so used the sliced almonds I had in the cupboard. I also used 1/3 less sugar as I often do to reduce calories and they were still great. Kids love them! Read More
