Goldilock Cookies

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

I named these Goldilock Cookies because they remind me of the breakfast porridge that Goldilocks would be eating when she went to visit the 3 little bears. :)  There is something very warming when I think of oats, walnuts, raisins, cinnamon….  Back in the day when my baking consisted of “cooked” desserts, I was well known for what I called a “Health Cookie”.  It was a recipe that a friend and I created about 15 years ago.  For about 10 years I would make dozens of batches of these cookies annually.  My dad LOVED them.  He asked for them every Christmas.  One year I made him 500 of them!  I now have to laugh at to what I use to think was healthy.  The main ingredients were; oats, raisins, Wheaties cereal (healthy so far?), butter, sugar, brown sugar (the list just get worse).  In many ways these cookies are similar but this creation is indeed so much healthier!

Ingredients:

Yields 40 small cookies

  • 1 cup raw walnuts, soaked and dehydrated
  • 2 cup oats,gluten-free
  • 3 bananas, ripe
  • 2 medium pink lady apples, organic, diced
  • 1/2 cup raw almond butter
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp allspice

Preparation:

  1. In the food processor combine the oats, bananas and almond butter until well blended.
  2. Add in the cinnamon, salt and allspice.
  3. Add in the walnuts, raisins and apples and blend together.  I like to keep some chunks in the cookies but you could blend till smooth if you wanted to.
  4. Drop cookie batter on teflex sheets and dehydrate at 105 degrees for about 10 hrs. I sprinkled cinnamon on top.  I like to use those small ice cream scoops.  That way you get cookies that are consistent in size.
