BAKE THESE COOKIES.  You NEED these cookies.

This is a recipe that comes courtesy of one of Toad’s new running friends.  I don’t know what is up with the baking/foodie runners, but there seem to be lots of them.  Who knew?  In the last two weeks, I have made these cookies twice.  They are delicious and very close to nutritious (for a cookie).  They are also Vegan if you’re into that kind of thing.  Enjoy!


  • 2 cups flour (all-purpose or half whole-wheat/half all-purpose – all whole-wheat is too grainy)
  • 1 1/3 cups oats (quick-cooking or rolled)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 2 tbl honey
  • 1 cup mashed pumpkin
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbl ground flaxseeds
  • 1 11.5oz  pkg milk or dark chocolate chips


  1. Mix dry ingredients (flour through sugar)  in a medium bowl.
  2. Mix wet ingredients (oil through flax) in a large bowl.
  3. Fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients in 3 batches.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips
  5. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet or parchment paper **Cookies will not spread, so feel free to put them an inch apart**
  6. Bake at 350 for 16 minutes
