View Full Version : Oatmeal cookies?
I searched...I really did!!! I know there has been talk here of making oatmeal cookies, but I can't locate a recipe. I did a search under cookie, and oatmeal. I must be blind because I can't find where one has been posted.
Does anyone have an oatmeal cookie recipe they would share? Or tell me what book it is in and I will look into buying it.
Thanks a bunch! :)

It's there...just did a search myself using "oatmeal cookies" ! ;)
But here it is:
Juliano's Oatmeal Cookies from the book "RAW - the uncook book"
2 cups oat groats
3/4 cup dates
1/2 cup dried raisins
1/2 cup raw almonds coursley chopped
2 or 3 apples grated
1/2 cup raw cashews
Place oat groats in a food processor and grind until fine. If you dont 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 chashews 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. They dont need to be crunchy all the way though.
(My notes: The recipe doesn't call for soaking the groats, but I found that if you either soak them overnight OR grind them really well in a coffee grinder, Vitamix, etc. that they are easier on the teeth! Oat groats can be kinda hard to bite into, like other grains if not soaked or ground up first! Now that I have the grain flaker, I just roll them into rolled oats now when I make oatmeal cookies! Also, when I make these cookies, I add cinnamon and vanilla and a dash or two of sea salt to make them even more like "real" cookies...but they're good the original way too. I also substitute the almonds for chopped walnuts because I've always liked walnuts in cookies rather than almonds. Pecans would probably be really good too!)
There's also a really good recipe that Pixiegreen posted, I'll see if I can dig it up for ya!
Okay I'm back...here is the recipe that Pixiegreen (Christa) posted for cookie dough and then she gives instructions on making it into dehydrated cookies (they're delicious!!):
Pixie Cookies (my own lil' name I gave them) by PixieGreen
To make raw cookie dough for ice cream, use a dash of vanilla, dash of salt, a spoonful of coconut butter, large spoonful of almond or cashew butter, spoonful of honey, dash of cinnamon. Mix this up well, it should have the consistency of SAD cookie dough before you add the flour [what would be eggs/ sugar/ butter]. This is the cookie base.
Add either a few ground almonds/ cashews OR a spoonful of coconut flakes[for macaroonie flavor]. Optional: Grind oat groats into flour as a substitute or add to nuts/ coconut to keep the cost/ fat down. Grind cacao nibs until they are flecks and stir in. It shouldn't be really thick, but enough to form into balls. If it's still too moist add more ground nuts/ coconut/ oat flour. Freeze balls until frozen. Next time you make frozen banana ice cream stir some of these bad boys in. I love it! This makes enough for one large bowl of ice cream.
Dehydrated cookies: To make oatmeal cookies add rolled oats to the cookie base then dehydrate for a few hours. For macaroons I grind rolled oats into flour and add half coconut flakes/ half oat flour then dehydrate. For chocolate cookies add rolled oats or oat flour and triple/ quadruple the amount of cacao nibs [ground well], and add more honey to balance.
Thanks a bunch. I feel dumb now, that I couldn'f find it in my search. I was only searching with single words, tho.

No no no...please don't feel dumb! It's like you said, you were searching with single terms whereas I just typed in both words.
You're welcome! :)

I just made a batch of these cookies, yum! I followed the "note" that Rawkinlocs had in her post and did soak the oats overnight (a very good idea!) and next time I will just roll them in my mill grinder as I know I will like the cookies even better that way. Also I will make them a little thicker, always some adjustments to make when trying a new recipe for the first time!
But the flavor is wonderful and they are very good!

those look really great!
I would love to see someone's pics of Chocolate Chip Cookies too! I saw a recipe for those somewhere, but I've been way too busy/lazy to make them myself :p
