Low Fat Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

This is a recipe I created this evening after I roasted the last of the fall pumpkins for pies and had some leftover and did not want to waste any so I am trying several different cookie recipes. I will post them for your enjoyment if they come out as good as these did. I bet they would be great all fall long also. They will make a good low fat low sugar snack for the kids after school also.

Low Fat Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies


1 cup pumpkin
2 egg whites,

1/2cup brown sugar

1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cloves

1/4 tsp vanilla
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup raisins or as I prefer craisins you could even use dried cherries in this recipe


Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

Spray baking sheet with cooking spray. In a large bowl combine pumpkin and egg whites. In a separate bowl combine sugar, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, oats, and raisins. (Batter will be very dry at first.) Mix ingredients together just until moistened.
Drop cookies by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet, 2″ apart. You can leave the cookies in the shape of a ball. The cookie will stay in the shape of the ball so I flatten mine out a bit. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. .

I hope ya’ll have a great baking season. Happy Holidays.

Hope to see ya’ll soon.
