Ingredients You’ll Need

Dry Ingredients:

Rolled oats (2.5 cups)

Vanilla protein powder (3 tbsp)

Cinnamon (1 tsp)

Sugar-free chocolate chips (1/2 cup)

Wet Ingredients:

Pumpkin puree (1 cup)

Egg white (1)

Maple syrup (2 tbsp)

How to Make Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

Step 1. First of all, mix pumpkin puree, egg white, and maple syrup in a glass bowl.

Step 2. Add rolled oats with protein powder, cinnamon, and chocolate chips in a separate bowl.

Step 3. Mix them together.

Step 4. Combine wet and dry ingredients. You’ll be able to form a thick dough. Take your time so that all ingredients are well mixed together. We want to make sure our dough has one consistent texture.

Step 5. Now, form cookies shapes. Make sure you’re happy with the final thickness and shape because the cookies won’t change much after baking.

Make sure you get a baking tray and line it with parchment paper before placing all those cookies. I formed a total of 19 cookies. Anything from 17 to 23 should be fine.

Step 6. Preheat the oven to 350F (180C) and bake them in the oven for 10-15 minutes. The cookies should turn golden brown.

Once they’re out of the oven, make sure you cool them down before serving!

How to Store These Cookies?

Once your cookies have cooled down, place them in an airtight food storage container like this. Afterward, store them at room temperature for 3 days.

However, if you want them to last longer, store them in the fridge. Then they should last you 6 days.

Want them to last even longer? You can store them in an airtight freezer-safe food storage container and place them in the freezer. They should last up to 3 months.
