Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies

By Saturday, June 08, 2013 , , , , ,



These cookies are delicious, incredibly easy to make and very healthy also, great for a snack, dessert, or as part of a breakfast on the go.
You will need:

1 cup oats
2 tbsp almond meal
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2-1 tbsp cinnamon
2 very ripe bananas
1/4 cup/ 30g walnuts
1/4 cup/ 30g raisins

Preheat your oven to 150C and  mash your bananas roughly with a fork, leaving some chunky parts if you wish. Add the dry ingredients excluding the walnuts and raisins to a bowl, then add in the banana and mix well, adding more oats if the texture is too moist. Fold in the walnuts and raisins and place in 8 even cookie shapes on a baking sheet on a tray and bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until slightly browned on top. Allow to cool and then eat, or store in a sealed container for up to 5 days.

    1. Almond meal is just ground almonds, you can buy them in every supermarket, and yes, jumbo oats are fine, they're just oats :)

  2. Would these not taste a bit boring without sugar? I made something similar without sugar and they tastes gross to me, how much sugar would you add in? I would use unrefined brown cane sugar so it wouldn't make them too bad for me :)

    1. I don't have much of a taste for sweet foods, so I never use sugar in my baking and I don't really have any experience with using it either. I find the taste of the banana to be sweet enough! Perhaps you can Google for another oatmeal cookie recipe using brown sugar and use that so you know exactly how much to use?

  3. I've never cooked anything on 150oc in my life haha, so I was wondering is that a typo or really that cool? Thanks! These look great!

    1. These cookies are best cooked on a low heat for a long time, as they're very moist. 150-160C is the hottest they should be cooked at for best results!

  4. Do you think I could make those into muffins instead of cookies and just bake them a little longer?

    1. I don't think so, no. To make these muffins you'd need to use flour too, otherwise the texture will be all wrong and you'll just have these big lumps of oats!
