    Wheat flour, white, all-purpose, enriched, calcium-fortified, 2 cups
    Oatmeal, 1-1/3 cups
    Baking Soda, 1 tsp
    Salt, 3/4 tsp
    Cinnamon, ground, 1 tsp
    Nutmeg, ground, 1/2 tsp
    Granulated Sugar, 1-2/3 cup
    Canola Oil, 2/3 cup
    Molasses, 2 tbsp
    Pumpkin, canned, without salt, 1 cup
    Vanilla Extract, 1 tsp
    Ground Flaxseed Meal, 1 Tbsp (optional, but included in calories and makes them a little chewier)
    Walnuts, 1 cup, finely chopped
    Cranberries, dried, sweetened (craisins), 0.5 cup (can substitute raisins)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees; spray cookie sheets with cooking spray.
Mix together, the flour, oats, baking soda, and sices.
In a separate bowl, mix together the sugar, oil, molasses, pumpkin, vanilla, and flaxseeds (if using) until very well combined.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in 3 batches, folding to combine.
Fold in the walnuts and craisins.
drop by tablespoons onto lightly greased cookie sheets. They don't spread very much, so they can be placed an inch apart.
Flatten the tops of the cookies with a fork or your fingers to press into cookie shape.
Bake for 16 minutes at 350 degrees.
If you are using 2 cookie sheets on two levels of the oven, rotate halfway through for even baking.
Remove from oven, cool on cookie sheets for 2 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
They will be soft coming out of the oven, but will become chewy as they cool.

These taste best when they have had some time to cool and set, and even better the next day!
Makes 4 dozen (48) cookies

  • Very Good
    Quite tasty! I use a large cookie scoop and only got 36. I used a little less oil and opted for the raisins. They were still very moist. Will make again for sure! - 9/29/10

  • Incredible!
    Awesome recipe - I made (2) trays of larger cookies (32 total) and added 4 minutes to baking time. Good enough for holiday baking! - 8/14/09
