I'm a legitimate oatmeal cookie monster... I only counted, and as of January 2018, I have shared 47 oatmeal cookie recipes with you. Eep! Have you tried any of these yet? (? You'll locate all my oatmeal cookie recipes directly there!) They are some of the most well-known recipes on my site cause they taste really sweet and comfy, just like conventional"indulgent" oatmeal cookie recipes, but they include no refined sugar or bread!
That means you are going to begin with whole wheat bread (or gluten-free, if you like ) and instant oats (such as those... or these for a gluten-free edition!) . Instant oats are smaller and thinner than conventional rolled oats, also you can see them in canisters right next to those classic oats at the grocery shop.
I probably sound like a broken record by now... But cause I ? you and want your cookies to flip out totally plump and soft, I am reminding you again... Measure your yogurt and bread properly, using this method or even a kitchen scale! (? That's the one I have and enjoy. Too much of either ingredient is likely to make your biscuits taste cakey or sterile, rather than chewy. This is especially true of the oats--they act like little sponges and consume plenty of moisture from your cookie dough!
Ripe bananas- ideal for baking! Really like all @amybakeshealthy's yummy & healthful banana recipes!
See these bananas? And all of those brown spots? When it comes to baking with bananas, brown = beautiful! I ? extra speckly bananas because they have so much bright, bold taste --and extra natural sweetness! That's the minimum amount of brown which I suggest. More is better!
The remaining part of the cookie dough's sweetness comes from a different organic ingredient... Pure maple syrup (such as this!) . You desire the type that comes directly from pine trees, which is usually sold in thin glass bottles or squat, round plastic jugs. Forget the pancake sugar and sugar!

The peppers include much more natural sweetness! The recently purchased, additional plump, perfectly tender ones are perfect... But for those who have older, slightly dried out raisins (hmm... it seems absurd to explain dried fruit as dried outside! ) , that is okay!
Simply add them into some microwave-safe bowl, and put water on top till they're completely covered. Seal plastic wrap across the surface, and then microwave continue reading this the bowl on high for 1 minute. If you let the raisins sit mixing together the cookie dough, then this small trick hydrates them so they're tremendously succulent --and that makes a significant difference in these cookies once they're baked!

Healthy Banana Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Yields: 15 biscuits
These oatmeal biscuits are soft, chewy, and full of banana flavor! The recognizable cozy spices and plump blueberries make these even more irresistible. They'll keep for a minumum of one week if stored in an airtight container in the fridge --should they last that long!
1 cup (100g) instant oats (fermented if needed and measured like that )
3/4 cup (90g) whole wheat or fermented * flour (quantified like this)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp (28g) unsalted butter or coconut oil, melted and cooled slightly
1/4 cup (63g) mashed banana
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup (120mL) pure maple syrup
1/4 cup (40g) raisins
In a medium bowlwhisk together the oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Add in the flour mixture, stirring just until incorporated. Let the cookie dough rest for 10 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 325°F, and line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
With a spoon and spatula, drop the cookie dough into 15 curved scoops on the prepared sheet, and apply to the desired thickness and width using Banana Oatmeal Cookies - Pinch and Swirl a spatula. Bake at 325°F for about 10-12 minutes. Cool to the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.
Notes: It is extremely important to measure both the wheat and oats correctly employing this technique or a kitchen scale. (? That is the one I have and adore!) Too much of either could dry out of the biscuits and leave them cakey instead of chewy.
Immediate oats are also known as quick-cooking or minute oats. They come in massive canisters, exactly like old-fashioned oats. They are not those in the small flavored loaf of bread. To create your own, add the same quantity of conservative oats to a food processor, and pulse 10-12 days or until the oats are about 1/4 into ? of the original size.
For the gluten-free flour, I recommend the following mix: 1/2 cup (60g) millet flour, two tbsp (15g) tapioca flour, 2 tablespoons (15g) brown rice , as well as 1/2 tsp xanthan gum. Most store-bought fermented flour blends (like this one!) Will also work, if measured like this.
For your best results, use the ripest and spottiest bananas you'll be able to find!
If your raisins are elderly, dryer, and not too plump or juicy... Add them to a microwave-safe bowl, and pour water on top until they're fully covered. Seal plastic wrap over the top, and microwave the bowl on high for 1 minute. Should you allow the peppers sit mixing together the cookie dough, this little trick hydrates them so they're really soft and juicy!
