How to make Pumpkin No Bake Cookies

  • Step 1. Prepare the pan. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This will make the entire process much easier when it’s time to clean up.

Step 2. In a medium saucepan, melt together the butter, sugar and milk on high heat. Continue until all of the ingredients are melted and combined. Boil the mixture for 1-2 minutes. 

Step 3. Remove from heat. Stir in the vanilla extract. Add the pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin puree and quick oats.

Step 4. Stir until everything is combined.

Step 5. Form the cookies. I used a medium cookie scoop, but you can also use two spoons. Then drop the mixture onto the lined baking sheet.  Allow to rest at room temperature until set.

FAQs

How to store?

Store the leftover cookies in an airtight container or bag at room temperature for up to 1 week. They store easily and still taste great.

Can you freeze No Bake Cookies?

It is so easy to freeze these Pumpkin No Bake Cookies. Allow to cool and then place on a baking sheet. Flash freeze the cookies for 1 to 2 hours. They won’t stick to each other since you did this and it will be so easy to grab one or two.

Then transfer to a freezer bag or container. Freeze the cookies up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge when ready to enjoy the cookies.

Is this recipe gluten free?

Oats are naturally gluten free along with sugar butter and milk. However, sometimes there is a risk of contamination with oats. Check the label to make sure it says certified gluten free.

This will alleviate any worry about cross contamination that you might have.

Do I need to use Old Fashioned Oats or Quick Cooking Oats?

Quick Oats are recommended in this recipe and will result in the best texture. They are shaped smaller and don’t as long to set. Old Fashioned Oats are thicker and don’t spread as evenly in the cookies.

Expert Tips

  • Line the baking sheet. Prepare the pan with a silicone baking mat or wax paper. This will make clean up easier.
  • Boil the Mixture. Make sure to boil the mixture for 1 to 2 minutes. This will help the cookies to set later.
  • Use a cookie scoop. If you want to make sure the cookies are uniform, use a cookie scoop to form the cookies. It will go quickly, and each cookie will be the same size.
