Tender pumpkin cookies with oats, raisins and spices.


  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry or whole wheat flour*
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cups pumpkin puree

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  3. In another medium bowl, use a hand mixer to beat together brown sugar and butter until fluffy. Beat in egg, then pumpkin puree, then vanilla extract until combined. Slowly beat in dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in raisins.
