You read that right – these are n’oatmeal cookies. As in oatmeal, but without the oats. Because oats are a grain and grains don’t work well for lots of people. But don’t worry, you’ll get all the oatmeal cookie goodness you’re used to in these cookies.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Paleo alternatives are almost always far and away superior to their Standard American Diet counterparts. These cookies are no exception. Take away the boring wheat flour and ultra sweet brown sugar and replace those with almond flour, walnuts, flaxseed, maple syrup, and honey and you have a really satisfying cookie experience. Add raisins if you want to go crazy, which I definitely recommend you do.
To top it off, these cookies are super easy to put together. Just mix all the ingredients, chill, scoop and bake. Voila! I always make these before we go camping because camping means hiking and lots of physical work and these cookies are packed full of energy from pure sources and they taste amazing!
If you’ve missed oatmeal cookies since starting your healthier diet, give these a try. If you prefer chocolate chip, sugar cookies, or gingerbread, I’ve got you covered in that department as well. We take cookies seriously around here. 🙂
