{Healthy} Oat Cookies

No added sugar. Addictive. Sweet. Delicious.  And HEALTHY! I seriously have trouble keeping these puppies around past three days in my house. They're that good. 

I'm so happy I stumbled upon this recipe from Blueberry Girl.



1 1/2 cups regular rolled oats (use whatever type of oats you like)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 cup of almond meal 
1/2 cup mixed nuts, finely chopped (I used chopped almonds here.)
1 cup dried fruit (I used cranberries here.)

3 ripe bananas, mashed ( or substitute applesauce, or 2 eggs)
1/4 cup canola oil (or oil of your choice)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.

2. In a large bowl, combine rolled oats, almond meal, mixed nuts. Stir in allspice and cinnamon. Add dried fruit and stir until well and evenly mixed. Make sure the dried fruit do not stick together in big batches.

3. In another bowl, combine canola oil, mashed banana and vanilla extract. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and stir until well combined.

4. Take a large cookie cutter and press spoonfuls of the batter into it. Remove cookie cutter.  Or simply form balls with your hands and flatten slightly. Bake for about 20 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
