Pumpkin Maple Cookies Recipe

Oooooh, Monday. I did not want to see you this morning. I spent most of my weekend at Deer Valley for the Better Blog Retreat (I will share a recap soon). I had an amazing time, but I didn’t get anything on my to do list done and I didn’t get to spend enough time with my boys. SO instead of having the Monday blues, I am going to extend my weekend. I am going to stay in my pj’s, read stories with my boys, turn on some tunes, and bake Pumpkin Maple Cookies. Take that Monday!

Maple donuts are Josh’s all-time favorite donuts and he is passed his love on to our boys. Caleb and Maxwell both love maple donuts. Maxwell has only had a few tastes, but he savored every little bite!

I am not a huge donut fan, I save my calories for cookies. I do like the flavor of maple though, so I made a Pumpkin Maple Cookie, the best of both worlds. And since it is fall I HAD to use pumpkin because pumpkin is everything right now…and the pumpkin maple combo is legit.

The pumpkin oatmeal cookies are soft, chewy, and sweetened with pure maple syrup. My boys favorite part of a maple donut is the glaze, so I made a sweet maple glaze for my cookies too! The drizzle took the cookies from good to GREAT!

Boycott Monday with me and make Pumpkin Maple Cookies. You will be glad you did!

  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon maple extract or flavoring

  1. These sound fantastic! I’m not usually that excited about pumpkin, but the addition of oatmeal and maple makes these cookies sound irresistible!

  2. It was so wonderful to FINALLY meet you this weekend Maria! You are such a wonderful host, and I had such a fantastic time. Thank you for all of your hard work and generosity–I’m so happy to call you a friend! xoxo

    PS. Monday deserves all the cuddles and cookies 🙂

  3. I am excited to make these- but my grocery store didn’t have maple extract or flavoring! Can I substitute more maple syrup?

  4. I just made these tonight. They were delicious! I used Namaste gluten free flour and substituted just a tiny bit of almond extract for the maple in the glaze and it was amazing! Thank you for sharing!

    These are maybe my favorite cookies ever. We’ve made them as directed but I just made a batch with Bob’s Red Mill gluten free 1:1 baking blend and they’re perfect. You’d never know the difference. Thanks so much! Tremendous recipe.
