For the cookies:

  • ¾ cup (120 g) brown rice flour
  • ½ cup (64 g) tapioca starch
  • ¼ cup (48 g) potato starch
  • 2 teaspoons (5.2 g) ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon (5 g) baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon (3 g) kosher or fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon (3 g) xanthan gum
  • 1 cup (2 sticks or 227 g) butter or dairy-free butter, plus more for greasing baking sheets
  • 1 cup (200 g) packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup (100 g) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (230 g) canned pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) pure vanilla extract
  • cups (200 g) old-fashioned oats
  • ¾ cup (112. 5 g) dried cranberries

For the icing:

  • 2 cups (250 g) powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons (4 g) pumpkin pie spice
  • 4-6 tablespoons (60-90 mL) water


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease baking sheets.
  • Combine flour, starches, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and xanthan gum in a medium bowl; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add pumpkin and vanilla extract and mix well. Add flour mixture and mix well. Stir in oats and cranberries.
  • Using a small cookie scoop, drop dough 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until light brown. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes; transfer to wire racks and let cool completely.
  • To make the icing, whisk together all ingredients until smooth. If necessary, add more sugar to thicken or more water to thin the icing.
