Easy Pumpkin Cookies

It’s never too early to start pumpkin season in our opinion. Not only is it delicious, pumpkin is rich in vitamins A and C, both important for immune function. We know it is only August, but since the PSL is officially being served, we figure it’s time to jump on the pumpkin spice train with these super simple cookies that are great for breakfast, snacks or dessert!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup rolled oats

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin

  • 1/4 cup cashew butter

  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/8 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds

preparation

  1. Blend all ingredients in food processor or blender.

  2. Let sit for 30 minutes (this will allow chia seeds to soak up some of the moisture and thicken up the batter which results in a better cookie texture).

  3. Scoop 1/4 cup batter for each cookie onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or well-greased.

  4. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees F.
