Ingredients
  • 1 ¼ cups old fashioned oats
  • ½ cup + 2 Tbsp oat flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 Tbsp melted and cooled coconut oil
  • 3 Tbsp creamy natural peanut butter
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup + 2 Tbsp chocolate chips, divided
  • 3 Tbsp pumpkin seeds (pepitas), divided
  • 3 Tbsp pecans, chopped and divided
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the oats, oat flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and salt until combined. In a separate bowl, combine the pumpkin, coconut oil, peanut butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, egg, and vanilla until well incorporated. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until nearly incorporated. Fold in the dried cranberries, ¼ cup chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons pepitas, and 2 tablespoons chopped pecans.
  3. Add the dry ingredients; mix until just incorporated. Drop on baking sheet in 2 tablespoon balls using a scoop. Gently flatten with the palm of your hand (cookies will not spread) and top with remaining 2 tablespoons chocolate chips, 1 tablespoon pepitas, and 1 tablespoon chopped pecans.
  4. Bake for 10-14 minutes. Allow to cool completely to avoid crumbling.
