Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies
Chewy Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies with White Chocolate Morsels and Maple Glaze.
Creating the perfect pumpkin cookie takes time. As in numerous batches of cookies, some edible, some not so much.
Just when I was about to give up, I remembered THIS Iced Oatmeal Cookie recipe on my blog. And I thought, perfect! The oatmeal will absorb some of the extra liquid from the pumpkin creating a delicious, soft (NOT CAKE-Y) pumpkin cookie.
Then of course I had to go whip up a glaze. And I think maple and pumpkin are just perfect together. Oh, and instead of chocolate chips, like you might see in most pumpkin cookies, I used white chocolate morsels.
Such a delicious pumpkin cookie. And I can say that honestly since I ate nearly half of them on my own.
These could also be great for breakfast on the go. I mean, pumpkin is healthy, right? Not too different from a granola bar. And it pairs so nicely with coffee. Just sayin!
