Mmmondays! Nutty Oatmeal Cookies
Sunday, July 13, 2014
Without further ado, here’s the recipe:
Nutty Oatmeal Cookies
1 1/2 cups rolled oats - we use the regular kind rather than quick oats
3/4 cup coconut flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup of flour or almond meal - we use whatever is one hand, usually whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup chopped nuts - we like walnuts and pecans
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chocolate chips
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking sheets.
In a large bowl, combine rolled oats, flour, nuts, coconut and cinnamon. Add raisins and stir, making sure they don’t clump together.
In a medium bowl (or high speed blender), combine canola oil, mashed banana and vanilla extract. Add mixture to dry ingredients and stir.
Form into balls and flatten with a fork on the prepared cookie sheet.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes. Try not to eat them all at once!
