These simple No Bake Pumpkin Spice Cookies taste like fall. Simple to make and so good you wont be able to eat just one. They only take minutes to make!


No Bake Pumpkin Spice Cookies


One of my favorite cookies of all time are traditional no bake cookies.

Now that I think of it, I don’t even have a recipe for those on this website.

I guess I better hop to it and add it!

No bake cookies are one of my favorites because they literally take 10 minutes to make and are SOOO easy.

I always have the ingredients on hand and they are prefect to whip up in a pinch.

So when I came across a new version of a no bake cookie, I had to try it.

No bake pumpkin spice cookies!

Say what?!


I decided to whip these up for an event I was helping with.

I was assigned desserts.

And what better time to try out a new recipe than on a bunch of unsuspecting people!

This way I can get a true evaluation of whether or not they were actually good.

The downside to this master idea is that the entire recipe could be a flop.

OR it could be a total success.

These no bake pumpkin spice cookies took me three batches to get right.

Overall the flavor was spot on.

HOWEVER, my first batch had way too much oatmeal.

My second batch didn’t have enough.

My third batch however, was spot on.

I think my favorite quote on how these cookies taste was by a friend who said they taste like fall.

So if you’ve ever wanted to taste fall (and not the dirt kind) then whip up a batch of these no bake pumpkin spice cookies and take a bite.

You’ll be hooked just like I was.

  1. I used white chocolate pudding, and the cookies were gone in a minute! Fabulous white chocolate and pumpkin! Such an easy recipe. Thank you.

    • Dorie, Yayyyyy! I love this recipe! The white chocolate and pumpkin is so delicious and I am happy to hear that they were all eaten up very quickly!

    • Dorie, I am so glad you have made them twice now! Anything pumpkin is yummy right? Thanks for your comment! Hope you check out more recipes on Num’s the Word!

  2. Has anyone tried them with Old Fashion Oats instead of Quick Oats? I have a large canister of Old Fashion Oats I’d like to use somehow.

    • Hi Brent. You can definitely use old fashioned oats. However your cookies will be firmer/chewier because of them needing longer to cook. You could always pop your oats into a blender and gently blend them into smaller pieces. NOT powder, but one pulse or two. That way they cook faster. Give it a try and let us know the results. 🙂
