Pumpkin Perfect Oatmeal Cookies are chewy in texture and golden in color. They are easily made with a convenience cookie mix, substituting the butter with pumpkin and a touch of oil. The pumpkin helps to reduce the fat and cholesterol in this recipe. It also works to maintain the moistness, while creating an attractive and deliciously sweet treat.


  • 1 pkg. (17.5 oz.) oatmeal cookie mix
  • 1/2 cup LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup sweetened dried cranberries, raisins or nuts (optional)

Thank you for reviewing this recipe.


Great for kids to make

My kids can stir these up themselves since you don't need a mixer. I keep the ingredients on hand year round and just change around whether I put in raisins, chocolate chips or walnuts. They never guess that these treats are healthier than the traditional cookie mix recipe.

Pumpkin Perfect Oatmeal cookies

My husband wanted punpkin pies when he bought the stuff for them he by mistake bought pumpkin pie mix. Now you have to know my husband if I don't make it the same way always the way I do he won't eat it, so when he found out he had gotten the wrong stuff he asked me if I couldn't use it to make something else like a cake or cookies as such, so I went to the Nestles site and pull up pumpkin cookie recipes and Bingo this one look good and easy to whip up, I had to do a little adjusting because of the pumpkin pie mix, but they turned out wonderful, (I left out the raisin as my husband doesn't like them and put alot of walnuts in them) after trying one he told me not to lose the recipe and could I whip up some more as those were almost gone. Of course, I told him just as soon as I ran to the store I would. The second batch made with Libby's pure pumpkin turned out almost as good as the first batch, according to my husband.
