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!

    Made these tonight. They are wonderful. Chewy and the spicing is just right. Used oldfashioned oats and oat flour to make them gluten free for a friend. They are delicious! So glad, I found a recipe that isn’t cakey.

    Hi Aimee. I made these cookies and was surprised that there were no eggs even though the other iced oatmeal cookie recipe you referenced contained eggs. My family loved these but I wondered if they might be even better with an egg and whether the lack of eggs was an oversight. Was it? Thanks for all the great recipes!

  29. I made these tonight! Moist and delicious, my hubby ate 3, I ate 2, but I had to control myself!! Delish

    First, let me say my husband loved these cookies. They were quite tasty. Like another reviewer, I questioned no egg in the dough, but followed the recipe exactly. I think pumpkin can replace egg. They were not chewy but cakey. So for those that like a variety of texture to their cookies, or prefer a cake-like texture, that’s the way these turned out for me. I will let you know I’m an American living in Singapore so the humidity affects baking at times. I try to crank up the air conditioner when I’m baking. I will definitely make again. They were still that good. Oh, and the glaze reminded me of my favorite doughnut: Maple Glazed Long Johns. Thank you Aimee for sharing your recipe with us all.

    Was searching for a pumpkin cookie recipe with not too much sugar in them which I why I chose this one.  They were absolutely delicious!  I love that the cookie is not too sweet since they’ve got the icing on top and chocolate chips in the cookie. I didn’t have white chocolate chips so used salted caramel which was delicious.  Making them again for my son and his girlfriend to take back to university this weekend.  Thank you for posting this recipe 😊
