N’oatmeal Cookies

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. 🙂

Ingredients
Servings: cookies
Instructions
  1. Chop or process walnuts and pecans until they are in very small pieces, like sand almost. Don't go quite to the point of turning them into flour, but almost.
  2. Add dates, maple syrup and honey to a large mixing bowl. If dates are not super moist, microwave this mixture for 20-30 seconds or boil on the stove for about 10 minutes. Now blend this mixture until dates are chopped very small. Cool slightly.
  3. Now add remaining ingredients except raisins. Mix this well. You can use a spoon or a mixer, but just combine all the ingredients well.
  4. Stir in raising if using. If mixture is warm at all, chill before baking.
  5. Once dough is chilled, scoop out onto parchment lined baking sheets.
  6. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  7. Bake cookies for 18-20 minutes until browned around the edges and set in the middle.
  8. Cookies will keep well at room temperate for a couple days, but after that need to be refrigerated.
