How to make pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chip cookies
Start by preheating your oven and lining a cookie sheet. Then in a bowl or stand mixer you will begin to mix up your cookie batter. The key is to cream the butter and sugars for 2-3 minutes or until it begins to lighten in color and becomes creamy. This will really elevate your cookies to a whole new level.
Then follow the rest of the directions down below to make your pumpkin oat batter. Then spoon onto a baking sheet and cook. Place on a cooling rack and allow to fully cool.
Can you freeze pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chip cookies?
Yes, these cookies freeze perfectly. Just allow your pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chip cookies to fully cool. Then transfer to an airtight container or sealable freezer bag. If you do a container just place a layer of wax paper in between each layer of cookies to prevent sticking.
Then toss in your freezer for up to three months. Then remove when ready to eat and heat up in the microwave or sit on the counter and allow them to thaw out.
Can you substitute the quick cooking oats for old fashioned oats?
You can substitute quick cooking oats for old fashioned oats. The old fashioned oats will give your cookies more of a chewy texture, to where you can really taste the oats. Quick oats will not be as chewy but you still get that oat flavor in every single bite.
Can you leave the oats out of these pumpkin cookies?
You can leave the oats out of the pumpkin cookies if you choose to not add it in. You will still get an incredible pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe. I love the oats for texture and flavor, but it isn't necessary to add them to your cookie recipe.
