Chai Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

These Chai Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies are gluten free, vegan, low and sugar, and so perfect for fall!

I felt like baking earlier this week (it was a rough one, and being in the kitchen is like therapy!), but of course had to make something with pumpkin💁🏻

I was originally trying to make energy bites, but let’s be honest, everything is better in cookie form! These cookies are also 100% acceptable to eat for breakfast and if it’s still hot af where you are, definitely opt for these instead of a bowl of actual oatmeal.

Chai Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

1 1/2 cups pumpkin purée

4-5 scoops Bob’s Red Mill Chai Protein (or vanilla*)

2 cups oats

1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice

2 packets Pranayums (optional or spices**)

2 tbsp Purely Pecans nut butter (or your favorite)

1 tsp sea salt

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp Lakanto Maple Syrup (or regular maple syrup)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment & non-stick spray (just to be safe!)
  2. In a large bowl, add all ingredients and stir well to fully combine. Add an extra (5th) scoop of protein powder if the batter seems too wet.
  3. Form into semi-flat circles and place on baking sheet. they won’t expand, so pack those babies in!
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes and let cool before drizzling with melted coconut butter! Store in an airtight container and microwave for 10 seconds before enjoying again (just my recommendation😉)

*If using vanilla protein, add an extra pinch each of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, cardamom & allspice

**If using spices in place of Pranayums add an extra tsp of turmeric, punch of black pepper, cardamom, ginger & cinnamon

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I’ll catch you back here next week!❤️
