INGREDIENTS

  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed until creamy
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats, uncooked
  • 3/4 cup flax seeds, ground
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line two cookie trays with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine the mashed bananas, pumpkin and vanilla, spices.
  • Add the oats and ground flax seeds, stirring well. Allow mixture to sit for about 10 minutes to soften the oats.
  • Stir in dried cranberries
  • Drop dough on cookie sheets using a small ice cream scoop. Slightly flatten balls of dough to create circles ¼ – ½” thick.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until cookies are golden and slightly firm. Cookies are chewy, so they will not get crispy edges.
