Everything Cookies

Everything cookies aka hunter cookies aka deliciousness! I don't know what it is about these cookies but we are so addicted to them. I make a batch every few days and the fact that they have no butter and therefore are low in fat and have about 50 calories each,  they are also guilt free! I rarely measure the ingredients when making this recipe so they always turn out just a bit different and over the years I have made several versions. Here's the latest version.

In a food processor add bananas, pumpkin puree, egg white, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, applesauce, brown sugar and sugar substitute.

 Blend until pureed.

Transfer to a large bowl. Add flour and mix.

Add oats and rice krispies. Mix.

Using a grating blade or a cheese grater, grate apples.

Add carob chips, cranberries, apple and any other mix ins! Mix.

Drop onto cookie sheet. They can be put fairly close as they don't expand much. Bake at 350F for 15 -20 minutes.
