While these were delicious, I'm not sure you can call them a "healthy" cookie when the recipe contains an entire stick of butter and an entire cup of sugar.

For a healthy cookie this one is a winner. I made some serious changes though because of my oddly stocked pantry, so I'm sure I didn't do it true justice! Instead of sugar I used a brown sugar spenda blend (1/2 cp) and used Hodgson Mill buckwheat pancake mix for the flour (this one is a whole grain buckwheat and whole grain finely milled blend). I also added more walnuts (love these) and some dried cranberries chopped. (in my world, you've never had an oatmeal cookie until you put cranberries in them! Instead of margarine, I also used butter. They came out good and really satisfied the November craving for homemade baked pumpkin cookies!

YUMMY!!!! I made a few changes (brown sugar instead of white, no OJ, used half whole wheat flour half white flour, skipped the walnuts my daughter dislikes, and increased the chocolate chips to 3/4c) and these were so good I immediately had to freeze them in single serving snack bags or we all would have eaten all the cookies that afternoon! Thanks for sharing!

Good recipe not exactly healthy with that much sugar but better than other cookies. I always add extra spice then what the recipe calls for. Used raisins instead of chocolate chips

I love anything pumpkin, so had to give this recipe a shot. This recipe is easy and delicious! It's another plus that they are somewhat healthy. It's true that the consistency is more like a muffin top, but I personally love this about them. The only change I made was cut the sugar to about half a cup, and found that plenty sweet. Next time, I may cut out even more. I only used some chocolate chips, and they turned out great.

Very yummy!!! These were a big hit with everyone in our house. I only made a few changes. I used half quick oats and half regular. Out of oj, so I used a bit more pumpkin puree. I used butter. And instead of walnuts and c. chips, I used finely chopped pecans. Thanks for posting this!
