Ingredients You’ll Need to Make Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies:

- Baking soda
- Vegan chocolate chips
How to Make Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
One of the reasons why I love this recipe is because it is so simple to make! Once you’ve gathered all of your ingredients you’ll want to start by pre-heating your oven to 350 degrees. For this recipe, it’s necessary to soften your vegan butter before starting. The best way to do this is to simply leave it out on your countertop for an hour or so prior to starting this recipe.
Once your vegan butter is softened, add it to a mixing bowl along with the brown sugar and use a hand mixer to cream the two together until it appears whipped. Next, you’re ready to add the remaining ingredients to the mixing bowl (everything except the chocolate chips- we’re going to add those in at the very end).
Adding in your flour, oats, pumpkin spice seasoning, pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, salt, and baking soda. Mix these ingredients together with your hand mixer until everything has been well combined. At this time you’re ready to add in your chocolate chips. Stir these into the mixture until they have been well Incorporated.
Grab a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper. I like to do this to keep my cookies from sticking to the pan. Alternatively, you can use a baking mat if you have one. Use a cookie scoop in order to spoon out individual portions of the dough and evenly spaced them on to the baking sheet. Once they have all been arranged use your fingers or the bottom of a cup to gently press each of the cookie dough balls down so that they baked into flat cookies, as opposed to large round ones.
Transfer them to the oven and allow them to bake for about 10 minutes. Once the cookies are finished remove them from the oven and allow them to cool for a few minutes before removing them from the baking sheet. Once they have cooled you can transfer them to a serving dish and prepare to bake the remaining cookie dough if you weren’t able to fit all of them on the sheet at once (like me!).
