Pumpkin spice cookies

These are a bunch healthier than the usual version but they don’t skimp on flavour in the slightest. You won't be able to stop eating them, and you'll love having one with a coffee for morning tea.


  • 1 cup self-raising wholemeal flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree, cold
  • ½ cup rapadura sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ cup coconut oil, melted
  • Vegan white chocolate


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (170°C if fan-forced). 
  2. Place all ingredients into a mixing bowl and combine well. 
  3. Shape dough into equal-sized balls (a little bigger than golf balls) and place on a baking paper-lined tray. 
  4. Press the balls down so they flatten out and bake for 15 minutes. 
  5. Cool completely on a rack and drizzle with some vegan white chocolate if you’re feeling indulgent.
