  • No-Bake Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies


    • 3/4 cup quick oats
    • 1/2 cup oat flour*
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional: a pinch pumpkin pie spice as well)
    • 1/3 cup canned pumpkin (or sweet potato purée)
    • 2 to 2 1/2 tablespoons milk of choice (dairy, coconut, almond milk, etc.)
    • 1 tablespoon oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


    *You may make your own oat flour by blending oats in a food processor until they become powder. Measure the flour after blending for the recipe.

    Combine all dry ingredients and stir very well. In a separate bowl, combine all liquid (including pumpkin). Then stir to combine, and form into balls or cookies. Or put in the fridge to firm up a little before forming cookies.
