Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies with Pistachios

What goes into the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies?

To make these easy and addicting Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies with Pistachios, you will need:

  • Rolled oats. I like to use extra thick cut, like Bob’s Red Mill.
  • Pumpkin purée. Plain pumpkin only- not pie filling.
  • Shelled salted pistachios. I prefer to buy them pre-shelled, but you do you.
  • Semi sweet chocolate chips.
  • Pumpkin spice seasoning.
  • Vanilla extract.
  • Light brown sugar.
  • A couple eggs.
  • Softened butter.
  • All-purpose flour.
  • Baking powder.
  • A package of instant vanilla pudding.
preparing the cookies

You sure can! While it is 100% important to make sure your butter is nice and soft prior to mixing- this cookie dough can be made ahead! HOWEVER- the beauty of these cookies is that it doesn’t need to be. Whether you bake these right away, or pop the dough in the fridge for a few days- these cookies come out the same every time.

Substitutions and alterations

When making these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, you can adjust for taste and preference. Got a nut allergy? Leave them out! Want a different nut, or don’t have pistachios? Chopped pecans and walnuts are also great! You could also swap the light brown sugar for dark brown sugar. This will give a bit of a richer flavor.
