So making no bake cookies during the holiday may come as a surprise considering everyone’s oven is going to be on overload. If you have ever tasted the classic no bake chocolate cookies with peanut butter and oats, you are going to love the pumpkin version! 

We are only going to be adding a little bit of pumpkin puree, which means you are going to have extra leftovers if you buy a can. In that case, enjoy these other pumpkin treats so it doesn’t go to waste!

If you love no bake recipes, you are in luck – so do I! I always keep a few no bake cookie dough bites and pumpkin protein balls on hand. As far as the freezer goes you can find this 3 ingredient peanut butter fudge, and if I am craving candy I like to make oatmeal peanut butter cookie dough cups, which look exactly like Reese’s! 

Why We Love These Pumpkin Cookies 

  • Easy to make 
  • No cooking required
  • Great for the fall and holiday season
  • Can be eaten for breakfast or dessert
  • Made in the blender, which means easy cleanup!

Ingredients Needed 

  • rolled oats – if you need these cookies to be gluten free don’t forget to check the label on the oats
  • almond flour – can swap for oat flour, but avoid substituting coconut flour as it is more absorbent and the other ingredients would need adjust as well. 
  • medjool dates – tightly pack the dates when you measure, this is where a lot of the natural sweetness comes from
  • almond butter – you want to use the natural drippy kind. Avoid using nut butters that are crunchy or grainy in texture.
  • pumpkin puree – do not substitute for pumpkin pie filling. It’s not the same and will change the texture or even ruin the cookies. However, you can use homemade pumpkin puree if you prefer.
  • vanilla extract
  • ground cinnamon
  • salt
  • chocolate chips – feel free to use regular size or mini chocolate chips. You can also use white chocolate chips if you would like.
