View Full Version : oatmeal cookies?

Has anyone got an oatmeal cookie recipe?
I have ordered Allisa's book, but it's not here yet. I'm doing my best to eat mostly raw until it gets here and I can actually get a clue.
I'd really like to have some oatmeal cookies.
Warning: I do have a food processor, but dehydrator is not here yet.
EDIT: PS, yes, I did a search. I found lots of mentions, but no actual recipes.

I make mine based loosely on Juliano's recipe. I don't measure any thing but there's not any real need to with this.
Grind oats into flour. Pour in enough maple syrup to make dough. Grate 1-2 apples and mix in along with raisins (optional-my kids don't like raisins in theirs so I leavve it out of theirs). Spoon onto dehydrator trays. I like them after about half an hour when they are still soft and warm and just firm enough to hold together, but have left them in as long as overnight and eaten them for breakfast nad they are good that way too.

You'll need your dehydrator your getting to make these:
2 cups of oat groats
3/4 cup dates
1/2 cup of dried raisins, chopped
1/2 cup of raw almonds coarsely chopped
2 or 3 apples coarsely grated (optional, use only if you prefer a chewier, heavier cookie)
1/2 cup of raw cashews
Place oat groats in a food processor and grind until fine. If you don't have a food processor, use a blender and add a little maple syrup to help the dough turn over (I tried it, the blender will do it dry just fine). Transfer the groats to a mixing bowl and add the dates, raisins, almonds and apples and mix the batter well. Set aside. In a coffee grinder grind the cashews until they resemble a silky flour. On a mesh dehydrator sheet shape the batter. Keep in mind that the thicker you shape the cookies the longer they take to dehydrate. Dehydrate the cookies at 90 degrees until they reach your preferred texture, around 12 hours.
