  • 1 cup pumpkin, cooked and mashed
  • 2 egg whites, beaten until frothy
  • 1 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup raisins


Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper and set aside.

In a bowl add the flour, bicarbonate soda, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, oats and raisins. Mix well to combine.

In a separate bowl, using a spoon, mix the egg whites and pumpkin.

Pour the pumpkin mix into the dry ingredients and stir to combine.

Drop tablespoonfuls onto the tray with 3cm between each.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.



  • You would never know these contain pumpkin when you taste them. They just taste like an oat and raisin cookie.
  • If you want a flat disk shape cookie, you will need to flatten these with the bottom of a glass on the tray before baking.
