Healthy Snack Recipes #5

Oatmeal, Raisin, Coconut and Chia Seed Cookies

Ingredients (Dry)

2 cups finely ground rolled oats
1/2 cup dried, unsweetened shredded coconut (ground)
1/2 cup currants or raisins
1 Tbsp ground chia seeds
1 Tbsp whole chia seeds
1 tsp cinnamon

Ingredients (Wet)
2 Tbsp raw almond butter
1/2 cup dates, chopped and soaked in 1/2 cup water
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp coconut oil

Directions

Step 1: Soak the dates in 1/2 cup water for an hour or more.

Step 2: Grind the oats and unsweetened coconut into a flour using a high powered blender.

Step 3:
Grind the chia seeds into a powder using a spice grinder.

Step 4: Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

Step 5: Place the almond butter, soaked dates (with their soak water), applesauce, vanilla and coconut oil in a food processor or high powered blender (like a Vitamix). Blend until smooth, then add to the dry ingredients and mix well.

Step 6: Form cookies on a baking sheet lightly sprayed with oil or covered with parchment paper (I used parchment paper because the cleanup is way easier!). Use about 1 Tbsp of batter for each cookie, and spread the cookie out on the parchment. The cookies won’t spread as they bake so be sure to spread them out into a “cookie shape” using a fork or spoon.

Step 7: Bake at very low heat: 200 degrees for 1.5 to 2 hours (mine took 1.5 hours in the oven, but it depends on how hot your oven is). When they’re done, they’ll be slightly browned and crispy on the outside.
