Disclosure: I was sent an OXO gift box for free but I was not compensated monetarily for this post. All opinions expressed are my own. I truly love OXO tools and support their #OXOGoodCookie cause.
Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are a sweet way to bake a difference … and they’re a great Fall treat. I’m sure you’ve noticed all of the pumpkin and apple recipes flooding the internet right now – It’s kinda hard not to notice. I’m just helping by doing my part and feeding the frenzy! 😉 These little goodies are soooo yummy – and the recipe makes a bunch – perfect for sharing!
Before we get to the cookie, let me give you a little background – Cookies for Kids Cancer was founded by two OXOnians (OXO employees) inspired by their 2 year old son’s battle with cancer. It provides inspiration, ideas and support for people everywhere to help fight childhood cancer — through the simple concept of local events like bake sales.
Since the beginning, OXOnians have pledged their time and energy by baking cookies and hosting bake sales, with proceeds matched by their parent company. This year, OXO will donate up to $100,000 to support this cause. Be sure to check out the end of this post to see how you can help bake a difference!
These are the nifty tools OXO sent me to try out. The funny thing is, one of my measuring cups broke recently (I won’t point fingers at the 17 yr old – *ahem*) – so I was actually looking to buy new ones! Thanks OXO for the awesome stuff! I love them all – but I especially appreciate the measuring cups! 🙂
Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Yield: about 6-7 dozen
1½ cups (3 sticks) butter, softened
2 cups brown sugar, packed
1 cup sugar
1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups quick-cooking oats
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 bag (12 oz.) chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar and sugar until creamy. Add the pumpkin, egg and vanilla; beat until smooth and well combined.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix into the pumpkin mixture just until combined. Fold the chocolate chips into the dough. Using a cookie scoop, drop dough onto the baking sheets, spacing about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges just begin to brown. Allow to cool on the pan for 3 minutes before removing to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Store leftover cookies in a covered container.
