Pumpkin Oat Cookies

We’re kicking off our first week of November with some easy pumpkin oat cookies. We enjoy having these as a little treat after dinner sometimes! Both Carter and Payton love them too. Just five ingredients and you’re good to go!


  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup organic pumpkin puree
  • 3 tbsp agave
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and line your baking sheet with parchment paper. — This part is super important so your cookies don’t stick! (I learned the hard way..)
  2. Mix the first four ingredients in a large bowl. The mix should be pretty thick dough! Then fold in your chocolate chips if using. Use your hands to really get the dough mixed together. It will be similar texture to my protein ball recipes!
  3. Use a medium sized scooper to make about 10-12 cookies. Space them out evenly on your lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 9-11 minutes.
  5. Let the cookies cool completely before storing them in an air tight Tupperware. But feel free to have one while they’re warm too! Next time I might even freeze a batch to save for later too.

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my Lifestyle Blog! Thank you so much for coming to my site to learn a little more about me and our family. I am 29 years old, (oh my goodness almost 30...), and have been married to my amazing husband, Jeff, for five years. I am also a mom! Carter James is our adorable, little blondie who is three, and Payton Jeanne is our baby girl who just turned one this past July. Bella is our yellow lab, and Chuckles is our cat. Of course I had to mention the fur babies because I'm sure they will come up in this blog at some point. I've been wanting to start a blog for quite some time now, and I think God finally gave me the courage to do it. I have always enjoyed writing, and while this is new to me, I'd love to share a little more about my life with you. My hope is for you to read this blog and feel like you're having normal conversation with me, so feel free to ask questions and make comments! I look forward to sharing our former NFL family life, mommy tips, recipes, favorite bible verses, and more. Looking forward to sharing the next play with you!
