A few days, a woman just needs a cookie. A gentle, sweet, freshly baked cookie... The comforting sort of cookie that fills you with a cozy warmth in the moment your teeth sink to it.
Within the last two weeks, I've believed that cookie craving nearly every night. Long (but super fun!) Days of filming new episodes because of the YouTube TV show, getting a head start on innumerable taxation and forms with my accountant, editing countless photographs from delectable recipe photo shoots...

I am a real oatmeal cookie monster... I just counted, and as of January 2018, I have shared 47 oatmeal cookie recipes along with you. Eep! Have you tried any of these yet? (? You'll find all of my oatmeal cookie recipes directly there!) They're a few of the most popular recipes in my blog because they taste very sweet and comfy, just like conventional"indulgent" oatmeal cookie recipes, but they contain no refined flour or sugar!
So you'll start with whole wheat bread (or fermented, if you would like ) and instantaneous oats (such as these... or those for a gluten free edition!) . Instant oats are thinner and smaller than traditional rolled oats, and you may find them in canisters right next to those classic oats in the grocery store.
I probably sound like a broken record by now... But cause I ? you and also want your cookies to flip out absolutely soft and chewy, I'm reminding you again... Quantify your flour and oats correctly, with this technique or a kitchen scale! (? That is the one I have and love. It only cost $20!) Too much of either side is likely to make your biscuits taste cakey or sterile, rather than chewy. This is especially true of this oats--that they behave like little sponges and consume plenty of moisture out of your cookie dough!
Ripe bananas- perfect for baking! Love all @amybakeshealthy's yummy & healthful banana recipes!
See these bananas? And all those brown stains? If it comes to baking bananas, brown = beautiful! I ? extra speckly bananas cause they have so much bright, bold flavor--and extra natural sweetness! That's the minimum amount of brown that I suggest. More is even better!
The remainder of the cookie dough's sweetness comes in a different organic ingredient... Pure maple syrup (like this!) . You would like the type that comes directly from maple trees, which is typically offered in skinny glass jars or squat, round plastic jugs. Forget the pancake sugar and sugar!

The raisins add even more sweetness! The recently purchased, additional plump, perfectly delicate ones are perfect... But if you have elderly, somewhat dried out raisins (hmm... it sounds absurd to describe dried fruit as dried outside! ) , that's okay!
Just add them to some microwave-safe bowl, and pour water on top till they're totally covered. Seal plastic wrap over the surface, and then microwave the bowl on high for 1 minute. If you allow the raisins sit while mixing together the cookie dough, this small trick hydrates them they're incredibly juicy--and that makes a major difference in these cookies once they're baked!

Yields: 15 cookies
The familiar cozy spices and plump blueberries make these even more irresistible. They'll keep for a minumum of one week if kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator--if they last long!
1 cup (100g) instant oats (fermented if mandatory and quantified like this)
3/4 cup (90g) whole wheat or gluten-free* flour (quantified like that )
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp (28g) unsalted butter or coconut oil, melted and cooled slightly
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup (120mL) pure maple syrup
1/4 cup (40g) raisins
In a medium bowlwhisk together the yogurt, milk, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Add the flour mixture, stirring just until incorporated. Fold in the raisins. Let the cookie dough rest for 10 minutes.
Using a spoon and spatula, drop the cookie dough into 15 curved scoops on the sheet, and apply to the desired depth and width using How to Make Healthy Cookies Your Kids will Love - Bren Did a spatula. Bake at 325°F for about 10-12 minutes. continue reading this Cool to the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.
Notes: It is extremely important to measure both the wheat and oats properly using this method or a kitchen scale. (? That's exactly the one I have and enjoy!) Too much of either would dry out of the cookies and render them cakey rather than chewy.
Instant oats are also referred to as quick-cooking or moment oats. They come in massive canisters, exactly like conservative oats. They are not the ones in the tiny flavored packets of oatmeal. To make your own, add the same quantity of conservative oats to your food processor, and pulse 10-12 times or until the oats will be approximately 1/4 to ? of their initial size.
For the gluten-free flour, I recommend the following blend: 1/2 cup (60g) millet flour, two tbsp (15g) tapioca flour, two tbsp (15g) brown rice bran, and 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum. Most store-bought gluten-free flour blends (like this one!) Will also work, if measured like this.
If your raisins are older, dryer, and not too plump or succulent... Add them into a microwave-safe bowland put water at the top till they're totally coated. Seal plastic wrap across the surface, and then microwave the bowl on high for 1 second. If you allow the raisins sit mixing together the cookie dough, then this small hint hydrates them so they're really soft and succulent!
