  • 1 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1 2⁄3 cups sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. molasses
  • 1 1⁄2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2⁄3 cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. ground flaxseed
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1⁄2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white whole-wheat flour
  • 1 1⁄3 cups rolled oats
  • 1⁄2 cup dark raisins
  • 1⁄2 cup golden raisins


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment and set aside.
  • Measure ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir together using a rubber spatula; scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl to incorporate everything fully.
  • Scoop batter out by tablespoons—a small retractable ice-cream scoop works wonderfully here—and place on the parchment-lined baking sheets.
  • Place sheets on middle rack in oven and bake 15 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from oven and transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.
  • Repeat process with remaining batter. Store cooled cookies in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
