Gluten Free No Added Sugar Fruit and Oatmeal Cookies

I saw a recipe floating around facebook and it sounded good. No added sugar, just the natural sweetness of yummy fruit! I decided to change it up just a little bit though. This made me about 30 good sized cookies.  Great for a quick breakfast!

4 cups old fashioned oatmeal(certified GF in necessary)
3 mashed bananas(about 1 cup)
1 cup pureed pumpkin
2/3 cup applesauce(I used a granny smith apple)
1 cup raisins ( or craisins, or a mix of both!)
1/2 cup milk(almond, soy, cows, coconut, whatever you like)
1 egg( a flax egg is a great replacement if you cant have eggs*)
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt

*flax egg:
Mix 1 TB ground flax with 3 TB water, mix well and allow to sit until gelatinous(5 mins). Use in place of 1 egg.

Preheat oven to 350 and lightly grease cookie sheets.

Mix all your fruits together in a large bowl, add in milk, egg , cinnamon, powder, soda and salt.

Add in the oatmeal and mix very well.

Allow to sit for a few minutes to soften up the oats.

Scoop by heaping spoonfuls onto greased baking sheet, flatten slightly

Bake 15-20 minutes until golden brown.

Allow to cool on sheets for 2-3 minutes, then transfer to cool completely.
