Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp ground flax meal + 2.5 tbsp water (can also use regular chicken egg)
  • 2 cups gluten-free certified oats
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup pepitas
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup honey (use maple syrup for vegan)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F. line two baking sheets with parchment paper sprayed with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, mix together flax meal and water and stir. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, until it has thickened.
  • In a large bowl, combine oats, dried cranberries, pepitas, chia seeds, cinnamon, baking powder, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. Stir to evenly distribute the spices.
  • Add flax egg (flaxmeal and water mixture from earlier), pumpkin puree, almond milk, vanilla and honey. Stir to combine.
  • Using a cookie scoop (see notes below), portion out 15 cookies. Lightly press down to flatten the cookies before baking as they won't spread. Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes, until the edges are lightly browned. Let cook on the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Notes

I used a #24 scoop which is 1.33 oz or roughly 3 tbsp. You can also use 1/4 cup which may need to bake a little longer. Or use 1/8 cup (2 tbsp) and check the oven around 15 minutes.
