Dr Oz: Pumpkin Raisin Cookies Recipe

Here is what you need:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup raw sugar
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • Dash of flaxseed

Here is what you need to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and allspice. In a separate bowl whisk together the the sugar, pumpkin puree, oil, syrup and vanilla. Using a flexible rubber spatula, gradually add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture. Stir in the raisins.
  3. For each cookie, drop 1 generous tablespoon (or a mini cream scoop) of batter onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving about an inch of space between each one. Using damp fingertips, flatten each cookie to a 2-inch-diameter round. Sprinkle a bit of the sugar on each cookie before baking.
  4. Bake the cookies until brown and slightly firm to the touch for about 17 to 20 minutes. Using a metal spatula, transfer the cookies to a rack and cool completely.

  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
