Oatmeal Cookies

Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free

Sweet pastries without a drop of butter and sugar! Oatmeal cookies are moderately sweet thanks to dried fruits. They are not very soft due to mainly being made from a cereal grain (oatmeal). If this is not enough sweetness for you – you can add maple syrup to taste.

I think the recipe for oatmeal cookies is in line with the principles of proper nutrition. It contains a set of useful substances necessary for the normal functioning of the body. Cookies do not contain wheat flour and sugar. Dried fruits and oatmeal enrich pastries with healthy fiber. In my opinion, dried fruits quite compensate for the sweetness. Oatmeal cookies are rich in “slow” carbohydrates, which are absorbed gradually, providing the body with energy. This cookie can be eaten for a snack, it satisfies hunger well and for a long time.

It is better to use old-fashioned oatmeal flakes for making oatmeal cookies, and not instant oatmeal. Old-fashioned oatmeal is an unprocessed grain product, richer in minerals and vitamins.

Use only natural and high-quality products for cooking, and your body will thank you.

Ingredients:

  • 6 Eggs
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
  • 1/3 cups Raisins
  • 1/4 cup Walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Use a coffee grinder to grind oatmeal 1/4 cup of oatmeal into oat flour.
  2. Combine ground oatmeal with cinnamon and baking powder, and sift. This will enrich the flour with oxygen and the finished cookies will be less dense.
  3. Rinse the raisins thoroughly, and dry well.
  4. Chop the walnuts with a knife. I chopped the nuts very finely.
  5. Beat the eggs until smooth. No special blender is required, so you can use a fork or whisk.
  6. Add raisins and chopped walnuts to the eggs. Stir.
  7. Pour in oatmeal with baking powder and cinnamon and the rest of rolled oats (3/4th of a cup). Mix well.
  8. The dough is quite sticky. Leave the dough, covered with a towel, for 40 minutes to soften the oatmeal.
  9. On a parchment-lined baking sheet with a damp spoon, place the cookies no more than 1/2 inch thick.
  10. Bake oatmeal cookies in a preheated oven at 350 F for 15 minutes. The cookies will not have a visible blush, so test with a wooden skewer. If it comes out of the cookie dry, then the cookies are ready. Don’t overcook the cookies or they will be too dry.
  11. Cool the finished cookies completely and serve. Enjoy!
