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
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.
