Raw Oatmeal Cookies
If you have been reading along, you know that I have been inspired by the raw oats that I found. I love oatmeal raisin cookies so why not try a raw food version? Using the raw flaked oats as the base, I also added raw oat flour. Marty, of Sunrise Flour Mill also hand grinds flour from the organic, unprocessed oat groats. I am still coveting my own mill. Oats and apples are the main ingredients in these cookies. A touch of cinnamon completes them. Honestly, these turned out so good I had trouble waiting for them to dehydrate! If you have kids, they will love them. And you can know that you are giving them something full of healthy ingredients. You are not going to believe that these are raw. You can order the raw flaked oats and oat flour from Sunrise Flour Mill.
- 2 cups raw flaked oats
- 1 cup raw oat flour
- 1 cup apple puree
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup agave (or liquid sweetener of your choice)
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 cup raisins
- To make the apple puree: quarter and core 3 medium apples. Leave the peel on. Place in food processor and process until pureed.
- Place Oats and Oat Flour in bowl. Mix together.
- Mix in remaining ingredients in order.
- Drop in mounds on teflex sheets. Flatten slightly. Place in dehydrator for 45 minutes at 145, remove from teflex sheets and place on screen. Continue dehydrating at 116 for 6 to 8 hours or until almost dry.
