These low cal, Soft Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting have all the taste with only half the calories of a regular pumpkin cookie! Add these to your holiday baking list ASAP!
I’ve been trying to count macros lately, and I’m really loving it! It has been fun coming up with creative ways to curb my sweet tooth, and these soft pumpkin oatmeal cookies with cream cheese frosting are my new favorite!
Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies
I used Truvia® Sweet CompleteTM All-Purpose Sweetener to make the cookies, and Truvia® Confectioners Sweetener to make the frosting which cut the calories WAY down. No one in my family could even tell a difference! I was so excited with how they turned out.
I can’t wait to try these products in some of our other favorite recipes, like our chocolate chip banana bread, our perfect no-bake cookies, or our easy homemade rice pudding!
I found my Truvia products at my local Albertsons in the baking aisle. They even have a coupon right now on their mobile app! Make sure to check it out before you go.
You can see in this picture, the difference between Truvia® Sweet Complete™ and Truvia® Confectioners Sweetener. They are both sweetened with stevia and have zero calories per serving and measure cup-for-cup like sugar. You can use them in place of regular sugar or powdered sugar interchangeably.
Alright are you ready to get the details of these delicious recipes?
Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting
First, let’s tackle the pumpkin oatmeal cookies. Honestly, they were delicious even without the frosting, so if you want to save yourself some time, they are fabulous as just the cookie alone.
First step: gather all your ingredients!
Top Left – Add pumpkin puree and melted butter in a medium-sized bowl.
Top Right – Whisk together and then add vanilla, spices and salt.
Bottom Left – Whisk until well incorporated.
Bottom Right – Add Truvia® Sweet CompleteTM and almond milk and stir together.
Top Left – Blend oats until flour consistency and add oat flour and baking soda. Mix until just combined.
Top Right – Add chocolate chips and walnuts, if desired. Chill dough 20 minutes.
Bottom Left – Scoop into twelve even balls on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet.
Bottom Right – Using clean fingers or a fork, flatten cookies and form into disk shapes. Bake at 350 for ten minutes, the center should still feel soft and a little underdone.
