Cinnamon and Raisin Granola Cookies

Hi Everyone,

How are you on this lovely Tuesday?  I’m doing really good, especially since I have created a healthy cookie that is so guilt-free that you can have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner!!  Woohoo!!

The best description I can give of these cookies is that they are a combination of an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, a granola bar and baked oatmeal!!  They are thick and hearty and make a wonderful snack!!  They do not contain any dairy, sugar and they are gluten-free.  How nice is that?  Did I mention, they are only 56 calories a cookie?  Yupper doodles!


I got this recipe by adapting my Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies  that I made last week.  Remember at the bottom of the post, I said I have an idea for another cookie based off this one?  Well this is the cookie!  I actually made these last week, but the photos didn’t turn out, so guess what?  I made them again!!  They were part of my batch cooking Sunday.  This was the first time I was happy my photos didn’t turn out!!!   These cookies are made with Gluten-free Rolled Oats from Trader Joe’s, applesauce, sugar-free maple syrup, raisins, cinnamon and vanilla extract.  I love these cookies!!!  I pop them in my freezer and when I come home from work I eat a couple!  Sometimes more than two.  But they are so good and they are even better frozen!  I love freezing my cookies!  I think I freeze just about every batch I have ever made.  It keeps them fresh and out of site!

Oh just as an FYI, don’t forget, if you don’t have oat flour, just take a cup of Oats, place in a food processor and after a few pulses you have ground oat flour!  It takes like a few seconds!!  I use my mini food processor to do mine.

I am having so much fun creating healthy cookies and as I type this, more ideas are flying in my head.  I want to step out of my comfort zone and try something similar but different, if that makes sense??  Should prove interesting.

Well I am off to bed!  Have a wonderful day!

Toodles,

Jen
