Preheat oven to 375°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, mix flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together with a large spoon.

In a separate large bowl, add avocado, banana, oil, siggi’s yogurt and pumpkin puree. Mash and mix well to fully combine.

Add wet mixture to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in dates (or other dried fruit) by hand.

Using a 1/4 cup measure or standard size ice cream scoop, scoop cookies onto baking sheet 1- inch apart. Bake for 25 minutes, or until set and starting to brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Note: the cookies don’t change once baked, so if you prefer flatter, rounder cookies, flatten them before baking.
