1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar*
1/3 cup granulated sugar*
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 banana, mashed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)
*You can substitute a non-sugar dry sweetener for these; I have used Splenda brand. Splenda currently also makes a brown sugar substitute.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease baking sheets.
Combine applesauce and mashed banana in a bowl, then add sugars and mix well. Add pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg to the applesauce mixture and stir together. In a separate bowl combine the flour, oats, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Then add the wet ingredients (pumpkin mixture) to the four mixture and mix till combined. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
Drop batter by spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until done.
