Pumpkin Banana Breakfast Cookies (or Muffins)

My daughter loves these, and seems to think they're a treat for breakfast, when in fact they're reasonably healthy. This same recipe can be used for muffins or a loaf.


2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup oil (coconut oil tastes particularly delicious, but any will do)
3/4 cup brown sugar (this amount can be reduced significantly if desired)
2 eggs, beaten
1 can pumpkin
2 bananas, mashed
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Optional: chocolate chips


1.    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (175 degrees C). 
2.   In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. In a separate bowl, combine pumpkin, oil, mashed bananas, eggs, vanilla extract and sugar until well blended. Stir pumpkin mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Drop by scoops onto a cookie sheet.
3.   Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the bottoms are lightly browned.
