These make a unique holiday party treat.

Recipe Notes

*1/2 tsp. of Ghost Pepper Chile Powder is the “Trick” version—these will have a spicy ghost pepper kick! Use 1/8 tsp. Ghost Pepper Chile Powder instead for a milder “Treat” version. Make one batch of each and see who can tell the difference!


1 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)

1 egg

3 Tbsp. melted butter, divided

1 1/2 cups cups regular rolled oats (not instant)

3/4 cup flour

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 cup chocolate chips

Savory Spice ingredients in this recipe


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together pumpkin, egg, 2 Tbsp. melted butter and Pure Madagascar Vanilla Extract in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined. Scoop 1-inch size balls of dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake 12 to 15 min. until lightly browned. Remove from oven and brush lightly with remaining melted butter. Allow to cool slightly on baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. Store in an airtight container up to 3 days.
