Who doesn’t love a good oatmeal cookie? This recipe ensures that the cookie not only tastes good, but is good for you.
3/4 cup dates
2 cups rolled oats (1 and 1/2 cups ground, 1/2 cup left whole)
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup raisins
1-2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 pinch nutmeg
1 pinch ground cloves
Begin by soaking the dates for a half hour or longer. Next, slice the dates and remove the seeds. Along with the bananas, puree the dates until smooth. Combine the puree with the oats, raisins, honey, and spices. Mix well and, using a heaping tablespoon as measurement, roll the dough into 10-12 balls. Gently flatten them into a cookie shape and place on the dehydrator racks. Set the dehydrator temperature for 55 or 60 Celsius and dehydrate for roughly 8 hours (overnight works best) or until your desired consistency is reached. You may store your cookies in the fridge for up to a week, though I doubt you will have leftovers by then.
