|Raw Vegan Oatmeal Cookies|
This is another recipe that I transferred from my old blog
My grandma made the best oatmeal molasses raisin cookies. In fact, I can still smell them! Lots of fun was spent in the kitchen at my grandparents house. Sweet memories.
My Raw Vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are guilt-free, gluten-free, healthy and very tasty. They go pretty quick too, so next time I'll make a double batch... maybe even triple.
|The aroma of these cookies in the dehydrator is like pure bliss!|
No worries if you do not have a dehydrator as you can eat these cookies completely raw! You can form them into cookie shapes or Bliss Balls (see below) - they taste like oatmeal cookie dough!

For this batch I did a little of both, and Mark took them to work to share. I rolled some in hemp heart seeds, some in coconut sugar and the rest I left plain. Shredded coconut would be a nice topping too... so many choices.
Here's my simple recipe for a yummy healthy treat.
Raw Vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookies and Bliss Balls
1 heaping cup of soaked steel cut gluten-free oats (rinsed and drained) - or regular oats
1 cup flax meal
1/2 cup walnuts (soaked and dehydrated - optional)
2 Tbs hemp heart seeds
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp Roasted Saigon Cinnamon (or regular)
1/4 tsp sea salt
Put into food processor and pulse to combine.
1/2 cup packed medjool dates (or dates of choice), process until well combined and can hold it's shape when rolled into a ball.
Add in 1/4 cup full of golden raisins and pulse just a few times to mix in. You can leave the raisins out if you like.
For dehydrated cookies:
Form into balls, sprinkle with a tiny bit of coconut sugar (or sugar of choice) and flatten. Put onto mesh dehydrator sheet and dehydrate at 115 degrees for approximately 4-6 hours or until desired doneness. Time will vary due to weather, location, dehydrator, etc.
For bliss balls:
Form into round balls and if desired, roll into coconut shreds, hemp seeds, coconut sugar... or leave plain. I love them plain.
Store them in the fridge or freezer - if they last that long.
