When I tried this N'oatmeal cookie recipe I was AMAZED it was so healthy!! My husband and his friend were going surfing so I packed up some of these cookies for them and they were a HIT! They have a hearty texture and just a hint of sweetness. They taste like traditional oatmeal cookies without all the junky ingredients!! No sugar, no flour, no grains….oh my!!
- 2 cups almond meal
- 1/2 cup flaxseed meal
- 1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
- 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup pure maple syrup (I use grade B)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)
- 1 cup raisins
- optional: reduce raisins to 1/2 cup and add 1/2 cup dairy free, grain free chocolate chips! Mmmmmmmm:) I've also made these with dried cranberries and extra dark chocolate chips - delicious!
- Preheat oven to 325 F.
- In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients.
- In a small mixing bowl, combine eggs, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and melted coconut oil with a mixer.
- Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
- Stir in raisins…or raisins & chocolate chips:)
- On a parchment lined baking sheet, drop tablespoon-sized amounts of cookie batter, I press them a bit to flatten them.
- Bake the cookies for 15 minutes…or until golden brown.
- Allow cookies to cool on a wire rack and serve.
These N'oatmeal cookies are always a HUGE hit when I've made them for friends;)
Another note….the recipe said it would make 12 cookies. Well, I ended up with close to 36 cookies!!!!! So that's okay by me, just thought I'd mention it in case you check out the cookbook I got this from:)
Enjoy, and let me know if you have any other yummy healthy goodies!
