Pumpkin Health Cookies

Remember the healthy cookies I made months ago?  These are pretty much the same deal only with pumpkin.  Perfect for Fall, right?  Add whatever you like to them: nuts, coconut flakes, dried fruit, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips.  

Pumpkin Health Cookies

1/2 banana, peeled

1/3 pumpkin puree

pinch salt

1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice blend

1 teaspoon maple syrup

1/2 cup old fashioned oats

any additions you like   (I say pecans and chocolate chips!)

Heat oven to 350.  In a bowl, mash banana and mix well with pumkin puree, salt, spices and maple syrup.  Fold in oats.  Form spoonfuls into desired cookie shape and size.  (I like to use a tablespoon and then press them flat with a fork.)  They don't rise or spread during baking.  

Arrange on a silpat or parchment paper lined baking tray.  Bake 15 minutes.  Cool and eat.
