I am a genuine oatmeal cookie monster... I just counted, and as of January 2018, I've shared 47 oatmeal cookie recipes with you. Eep! Have you ever tried any of them yet? (? You can locate all of my oatmeal cookie recipes directly there!) They're a few of the most well-known recipes in my website because they taste really sweet and comfy, just like conventional"indulgent" oatmeal cookie recipes, but they include no refined sugar or bread!
So you will start with whole wheat bread (or fermented, if you prefer) and instantaneous oats (such as these... or those for a gluten-free edition!) . Immediate oats are thinner and smaller than traditional rolled oats, and you are able to see them at canisters right next to those classic oats in the grocery shop.
I probably sound like a broken record by now... But because I ? you and also want your cookies to flip out totally soft and chewy, I'm reminding you again... Measure your yogurt and bread properly, with this technique or a kitchen scale! (? That is the one I have and enjoy. It only cost $20!) Too much of either side will make your biscuits taste cakey or sterile, rather than chewy. This is especially true of this oats--that they behave like little sponges and consume lots of moisture out of your cookie dough!
Ripe bananas- ideal for baking! Really like all of @amybakeshealthy's yummy & healthier banana recipes!
Watch these bananas? And all those brown stains? If it comes to baking bananas, brown = amazing! I ? extra speckly bananas cause they've a lot glowing, bold flavor--and also extra natural sweetness! That's the minimum quantity of brown which I recommend. More is better!
The remaining portion of the cookie dough's sweetness comes in another natural ingredient... Pure maple syrup (like this!) . You desire the type that comes directly from pine trees, which is typically offered in sparse glass jars or squat, round plastic jugs. Skip the pancake sugar and sugar-free syrup!

The pancakes include even more natural sweetness! The freshly bought, extra plump, perfectly tender ones are perfect... But description for those who have elderly, slightly dried out raisins (hmm... it sounds absurd to explain dried fruit as dried outside! ) , that is fine!
Only add them into a microwave-safe bowland pour water on top till they're fully coated. Seal plastic wrap over the top, and then microwave the bowl on high for 1 minute. If you allow the raisins sit while mixing together the cookie dough, then this small trick hydrates them so they're exceptionally succulent --and that makes a major difference in these cookies as soon as they're baked!

Yields: 15 biscuits
These oatmeal biscuits are soft, chewy, and full of banana flavor! The recognizable cozy spices and plump raisins make these much more irresistible. They'll keep for at least one week if kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator--if they last long!
1 cup (100g) instant oats (fermented if needed and measured like this)
3/4 cup (90g) whole wheat or fermented * flour (quantified like this)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (63g) mashed banana
1 tsp vanilla extract
In a medium bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. In another bowlwhisk together the butter or coconut oil, mashed banana, and vanilla. Add the flour mixture, stirring only until incorporated. Fold in the raisins.
Preheat the oven to 325°F, plus a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
With a spoon and spatula, dip the cookie dough to 15 rounded scoops onto the prepared sheet, and flatten to the desired thickness and width using Healthy Applesauce Cookies — Bless this Mess a spatula. Bake at 325°F for about 10-12 minutes.
Notes: It is extremely important to quantify both the wheat and oats properly utilizing this technique or a kitchen scale. (? That's the one I own and love!) Too much of either will dry from the cookies and render them cakey instead of chewy.
Instant oats are also referred to as quick-cooking or minute oats. They are available in huge canisters, exactly like old-fashioned oats. They're not those at the tiny flavored packets of oatmeal. To create your own, include the same quantity of traditional oats to your food processor, and pulse 10-12 days or until the oats will be approximately 1/4 to ? of their original size.
For the gluten-free flour, I recommend the following blend: 1/2 cup (60g) millet flour, two tablespoons (15g) tapioca flour, 2 tbsp (15g) brown rice bran, and 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum. Most store-bought gluten-free flour blends (such as this one!) Will also do the job, if quantified like this.
In case your pancakes are elderly, dryer, and not very plump or juicy... Add them to a microwave-safe bowl, and put water at the top till they're completely covered. Seal plastic wrap over the top, and microwave the bowl on high for 1 minute. If you let the raisins sit mixing together the cookie dough, then this small hint hydrates them so they're really soft and juicy!
