Believe it or not, these pumpkin oatmeal cookies are vegan, gluten-free, and absolutely delicious.

Oats are one of the healthiest foods on this planet
Keep in mind that depending on which brand of tahini you use, the consistency will be thinner or thicker. The slightly thinner consistency might mean that you will need to add a little bit more flour (about 2 tablespoons) and potentially leave it in the fridge for a little bit longer to firm up. However, no matter what tahini you use, these cookies will be delicious.
