This is one of my attempts to make a more healthy cookie and still have the kids like them! These passed the test.

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats

  • ½ cup wheat germ

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground allspice

  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 1 cup coconut sugar

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¾ cup chopped walnuts

  • ¾ cup raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, oats, wheat germ, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and salt together in a bowl. Beat butter, coconut sugar, and brown sugar together in a separate bowl using an electric mixer until light and fluffy; add pumpkin puree, egg, and vanilla extract and mix well.

  3. Stir flour mixture into pumpkin mixture until dough is well mixed; fold in walnuts and raisins. Drop dough, about 1 tablespoon per cookie, on the the prepared baking sheets.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are lightly browned on the edges, about 15 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Notes:

These cookies are fluffy not a chewy cookie... a bit like a muffin top.

You can skip the nuts and/or raisins for white or dark chocolate chips if you want some chocolate in this cookie. I have not tried to make them 100% whole wheat but I think it would work out ok. I will try next time.
