  • 1 cup all purpose flour 
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour 
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger 
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg 
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened 
  • 3 tablespoons almond butter 
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree 
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar 
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar 
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup 
  • 1 large egg 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 1 cup quick oats 
  • 2 cup chocolate chips 
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries 
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds 
Instructions:  In a medium mixing bowl, sift together flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.  In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter, almond butter, pumpkin, granulated sugar, brown sugar and maple syrup until creamy and well combined.  Beat in egg and vanilla until well combined.  Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in dry ingredients until almost combined.  Add oats, chocolate chips, cranberries and almonds and mix until just combined.  Chill dough for 1 hour in the refrigerator.

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Drop rounded spoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheets, spacing about an inch apart.  Bake 12-14 minutes, or until light golden brown on top.  Cool 2 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool.

Makes a little over a dozen cookies, depending on how large you shape them


  1. Loving all the fun ingredients in these cookies. They'd be great for a hike!

  2. Really enjoy reading your posts, just read the one about Savannah. There's something very cosy about reading about your American baking, especially in Autumn or Winter.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Baby! Savannah was fun!

  3. oh girlllll those can be my breakfast cookies. they scream healthy. hahah jk. :)

    1. I would sooo eat these for breakfast. I consider chocolate a health food.

  4. Yummmmm!! I love all your cookie ideas! It makes me want to bake, which is something I don't do on a regular basis since I'm more of a cooking person, but I still love all your recipes! :)

    1. Well, your recipes make me want to cook more! :)

  5. Love that these have all of my favorite fall flavors, plus almond butter. Win all around!

  6. Haha, I love the phrase "casual cookies". I may steal that from you! ;) These sounds delicious though and I think almond butter is the bees knees. It's that nutty flavor...yummmmm!

  7. Seems like a wonderful combination of flavors. Makes me wonder how many great recipes you've created that never made it to the blog!

    Cashew doesn't look like he's sorry. Then again, he's smart to be hanging around the kitchen if you've been baking up a storm. :)

    1. Aww that's sweet, Jim D. There are a lot of bad recipes that don't make the blog, too. :)
      Haha you're right! He's not sorry at all!
