Pumpkin Cranberry Nut Cookies are loaded with old-fashioned uncooked rolled oats, dried cranberries, walnuts, and pure pumpkin. They are moist and chewy on the inside with a slight crunch on the outside and filled with sweet and nutty flavors from cranberries and walnuts.
Best of all, the flavor of pumpkin is subtle and almost completely hidden in this cookie, making it even harder for any non-pumpkin-lovers not to fall in love with them or this recipe.
INGREDIENTS Needed For Pumpkin Cranberry Nut Cookies:
1 + 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 + 1/2 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar
3/4 cup pure pumpkin ( I used Libby’s)
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 cups uncooked regular oats, or Quaker Oats Old Fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup dried cranberries
The Best Part? One bowl to mix everything and bake! Easy-peasy!
Why We Love These Pumpkin Cranberry Nut Cookies…
All the flavors are carefully balanced in these cookies, with enough pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice to give them a warm, delicious flavor, not over-powering.
These are small cookies, so you can eat two of these cuties and not feel overly guilty.
Also, the cookies have enough warm spice flavor in them to give you a welcome sensation of the fall season!
They’re are easy to freeze.
Plus, if you have any leftover pure pumpkin or puree, you can freeze them in small zip-lock bags and label them with the amount remaining for future baking.
Enjoy these Pumpkin Cranberry Nut Cookies with your favorite coffee, tea, espresso, or glass of milk.
They’re easy to make and bake. And they will satisfy any cookie cravings you may have during the day. We promise.
