Last night I found this recipe on VegWeb which is also a pretty fantastic site for all your cooking needs. These cookies really are the best oak cookies I’ve ever tried (and have no butter or eggs in them….) The only thing I changed or I should really say “added” to the recipe were raisins, walnuts & some chocolate chips too! mmmmmmm.
1 mashed banana
1 cup of brown sugar
1/2 of a cup of regular sugar
About 1/4 of a cup plus 1 teaspoon of oil
1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 of a teaspoon of salt
2 1/4 cup oats
3 tablespoons of water plus maybe a few more drops
Pre-mix all the dry ingredients together – the flour, baking soda, cinnamon & salt. In a separate bowl, mix the brown sugar, sugar, oil, and water. Add the banana and vanilla. Then mix in the pre-mixed dry ingredients. Stir in the oats. If it is too thin, let stand a bit so the oats can absorb the excess liquid. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 13 minutes. To check if they are done, the bottom side usually browns first so judge accordingly to that (a light brown color on bottom will mean it is moist and yummy everywhere else!)
For the whole recipe: calories = 2,967/fat = 74.1/fiber = 28.1. …so for one cookie it is about 82 cals and 2 grams of fat.
Serves: about 3 dozen cookies
