White Chocolate Pumpkin Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

I grew up in a pumpkin free house. Pumpkins were meant for carving but definitely not eating. It wasn’t until I sat in a Starbucks after school one day my junior year of high school that I had my first bite of pumpkin, and my life was changed forever! Alright, so a little dramatic but that is how much I love pumpkin. It has such a rich flavor and pairs so well with all of my favorite spices: cinnamon, clove, all spice, and nutmeg. Plus pumpkin pie spice, but I don’t think that really counts. Pumpkin is simply amazing, and I still believe my family is just missing out on the good stuff. How could someone NOT want to eat White Chocolate Pumpkin Pecan Oatmeal Cookies?

While I love oatmeal cookies, they tend to require more butter than other types of cookie. You would think the oatmeal would make it better for you, but I just always feel guilty eating them. Not with this recipe. The entire batch only has 2 tablespoons of butter. That’s it! The pumpkin is what works to make these super moist, so the rest of the stick of butter can stay in the fridge and off the waistline.

I might have also learned that they pair really well with coffee. 😉 Okay, so yes I had one for breakfast two mornings in a row, but they really are that good! I promise!

I did lots of pumpkin baking this weekend and can’t wait to share the others with you soon.

Amazing White Chocolate Pumpkin Pecan Oatmeal Cookies with only a couple tablespoons of butter for the entire batch. A delicious and more healthy cookie!
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: about 30
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 cups traditional oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • A dash of nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter at room temperature
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 7 tbsp canned pumpkin
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup finely chopped pecans
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and prep your 2 baking sheets by lining them with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and nutmeg. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars (by hand or with a hand mixer). Add the egg, pumpkin, and vanilla and mix until smooth.
  4. Add the flour/oats mixture a little at a time into the large bowl and stir by hand until well combined. Then, add the pecans and stir.
  5. Use 1 tablespoon of dough to make each cookie and drop onto the prepped baking sheets about 2 inches apart. I measured and dropped messily onto the sheet, moving quickly. Then, before baking, I went back and shaped the cookies into more round cookie form.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges become a light, golden brown.
  7. Cool on baking sheet for 2 to 3 minutes and move to a wire rack to cool completely.
