At medium speed, beat pumpkin, coconut oil, brown sugar, and egg until well combined; gradually beat in flour mixture, then pumpkin seeds and cranberries. Scoop onto lined cookie sheet to form 16 mounds, spaced 2 inches apart; flatten into disks. Bake at 350° F for 20 to 25 minutes or until dark brown on bottoms. Cool on wire rack.
