Oatmeal Raisin cookies w/almonds

02.08.12 1 comment

Who doesn’t like cookies?; we all get tempted when we see at the food court or coffee shops. But when I see them I could only think of  big number calories popping on my head. So I thought of making some home made cookies to have a bite with evening coffee.  This recipe can make about 16-20 cookies in 2 baking trays but I tried to fill my cake pan instead of second baking pan and made an oatmeal raisin cake.  And I also tried substituting oil with apple sauce. Lets make  some chewable cookies and cake that we can eat and cherish.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 cups Oatmeal (rolled oats/old fashioned oats)
  • 1 cup of Raisins
  • 1 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1/2 piece of unsalted butter( I used baby apple sauce)
  • 11/2 cup of brown sugar(1/2 cup sugar + 1 cup br.sugar)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsps cinnamon
  • 2 tbsps nutmeg
  • 1 tbsps baking salt
  • 1 tbsps baking soda
  • 2 tbsps water
  • 2 tbsps vanilla
  • 1/8 tbsp; ginger
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • almonds to garnish (optional)

PROCESS:

Mix wet ingredients:Butter /apple sauce, sugars, eggs, corn syrup, water and vanilla; beat well.

Mix dry ingredients:Combine flour, baking soda, spices and salt; then add to wet creamy mixture.

Add oats, raisins and beat well together.

While you start beating preheat oven at 350for 10 – 15mts. If you are using parchment paper preheat oven at 400°c.

Drop by scoop the cookie mixture onto ungreased baking sheet/parchemnt paper.Here u can top them with almonds or choco chips.

Bake at 350° for 15 minutes.Cool slightly on sheet and move on to cooling racks.

APPLE-BANANA CHOCLATE CHIP COOKIES

IMG_0471I am left with ripe bananas and choclate chips which are chhoo sweet to make sugar free cookies …treat!

INGREDIENTS:
  • 3 large, ripe bananas, well mashed ( substitute with apple-cinnamon muffin mix)
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1/4 C olive oil
  • 2 C oat meal
  • 2/3 C almond meal
  • 1/3 C coconut
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 t fine grain sea salt
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 6 – 7 ounces chocolate chips or dark chocolate bar chopped (or both)
PROCESS:

In a large bowl combine the bananas, vanilla extract, and oilve oil. Set aside.
In another bowl whisk together the oats, almond meal, shredded coconut, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until combined. Fold in the chocolate chunks/chips.
The dough is a bit looser than a standard cookie dough, don’t worry about it.
Drop dollops of the dough in circle shape, each about 2 teaspoons in size, an inch apart, onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 12 – 14 minutes.

This is my favorite thing to do with the overly ripe spotted ones!
