I can’t believe it will be October in just a few days. I can’t wait! I love the Fall. The activities, the food, the smells…speaking of smells. Do you want to bake a cookie that brings the Fall right into your kitchen? These Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies are just the thing.

The scent while preparing the cookies is SO amazing. The cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves just fills the air. It’s amazing and they smell darn good while baking too!

the art of cooking baking mats

To bake my Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies I used The Art of Cooking Silicone Baking Mat Set ($22). This set comes with three silicone baking mats one that’s  16.5″ x 11.5″ and two that are 11.5″ x 8.25″. To make my Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies I used all three mats. One baking sheet fit the large mat and another fit the two smaller mats. It worked out perfectly!

The nice people at The Art of Cooking say:

This mat gives your pan a non-stick surface for delicate or messy baking projects.

Mats are all BPA and BPP free. Produced using FDA (USA) and LFGB (Europe) approved materials, these are oven, microwave, and freezer safe and the silicone mats can also be used on the countertop for all types of dough.

Mats clean up quickly and easily with soap and water and allow to air dry. Mats are also dishwasher approved for top rack only.

The mats will not absorb food orders or flavors and are perfect for the avid baker or the seasonal holiday cook. No cooking sprays, oils or parchment paper needed, helping you save both calories and money.

I can attest that all of the above is true. These mats are so easy to clean because barely anything ever sticks to them. They have saved my pans from those awful spots that baking sheets get from stuck on food and grease. Plus they have handy rulers along the edges. Makes dough placement SO much easier. Love them!

These pumpkin oatmeal cookies are sure to get you in the Fall mood. They are oh so soft and stay that way for days!
Course Dessert
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 15 cookies


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1.5 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • pecans


  1. Preheat your oven to 350F degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, and spices together. Fold in the oats. Set aside.
  3. In a medium sized bowl whisk together the melted butter, molasses, and both sugars until well combined. Beat in the yolk, pumpkin, and vanilla.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, gently mixing until just combined. Fold in both chocolate chips, cranberries, and pumpkin seeds.
  5. Place about two tablespoons of dough per cookie on your silicone lined baking sheet. Dough will be sticky and thick. I used an ice cream scoop to help me out. Top with one pecan each. Bake for 14-17 minutes or until golden brown around the edges. Top with one pecan each.

Recipe Notes

When I say pumpkin seeds I do not mean the seeds straight out of the pumpkin. I mean the hulled pumpkin seeds. Inside the white shell. Although those are good in pumpkin seed brittle.

What is your favorite Fall thing?

    Winner winner winner! I’ve made these but a different version…these look much better with both white and chocolate chips! And those mats are too cool! I have to get some of those!!!!

  2. Those would indeed smell lovely. I’ve been Susan Cooper using these mats and now you too. I think I need to finally give them a try.

  3. Uuuuhhh…they look spectacular. Pumpkin and oatmeal are two of my favorite things. It’s now October so we are fully into the pumpkin season. Looking forward to all the good stuff associated with it even though I will not be here in the US. Will have to take a sample with me.

  4. Hi Krystle. Stopping by from Bloggers Helping Bloggers. I absolutely love fall recipes, and your pumpkin oatmeal cookie concoction looks like such a treat! I can’t wait to try it out. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Those cookies look wonderful Krystle. I love the smell of the spices you’ve used when they baking – makes the whole house feel cozy and comfortable, just what you need on a cool Fall day. My favourite Fall thing? That has to be the trees turning colour. Where we live that is always gorgeous, enough so that we have tourists coming up to check out the scenery.

    • Yes, exactly. The smell is so warm and cozy – AND yummy! Trees turning colors is fun too! Sounds like you live in a lovely area. Jealous!

  6. William Rusho says:

    Looks like a wonderful recipe. I am someone who cannot cook, I have no skill it at all. I think if I bought them from a store, I would probally burn them. Great article.

  7. Silicone Baking Mat Set seems amazing. I love the recipe of pumpkin cookies, i will try to try them soon.

  8. Ken Dowell says:

    Recipe sounds good. I’m still in denial about summer ending so I’ll wait till the temperature drops a few degrees and then try it.

    • Hehe Ken. It’s still pretty warm where I am but it’s still October nonetheless. I’ll make it Fall in my head even if it doesn’t seem like it outside yet 🙂

  9. Hi Krystle,
    Those cookies look dangerously delicious, I’m adding them to my desserts board on Pinterest! Thank You!

  10. I’m loving this Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookie recipe to pieces. It’s the perfect recipe for this time of year. Great minds do think alike. I’m working on Fall and Halloween cookies today. 🙂

  11. They look utterly delicious and I say that as someone who can’t eat nuts 🙁

    • Awe that’s a shame. They are tasty and that’s from someone who’s not big into pumpkin! You could always not put the pecans on them 🙂
