I am addicted to oatmeal. I love the thick texture- especially when you don’t overwater it. And I love cinnamon. In the mornings, one bowl of oatmeal and some fruit get me through the first part of the day quite well.
But in the evening, I somehow lose my self control– over oatmeal!
For variation, I tried turning my oatmeal habit into a different treat with a few additives that do not normally make it into the bowl. I made just one large cookie- well, one at a time. Vegan, healthy fats, and whole grain.
Friends, lock up your oatmeal!
giant oatmeal raisin cookie:
- 1/4 cup almond meal
- 1/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 1 t melted coconut oil
- 1 T maple syrup (optional)
- 1 t cinnamon
- 1/2 t baking soda
- 1 mini flax egg (1 t flax meal + 3 t water- whisked and set in fridge for 10 minutes)
- 1/8 cup raisins (soaked in water for at least 10 minutes then drained)
Preheat oven to 350. Line baking sheet with a small piece of parchment. Combine wet ingredients in one small bowl. Whisk dry ingredients in another small bowl. Combine all ingredients including raisins- dough will be thick. Spoon dough onto parchment and flatten into cookie shape. Bake for about 12-15 minutes. Cool on wire rack for 5-10 minutes before eating.
