This morning I woke up to the sensual aroma of Oatmeal Raisin cookies! The dehydrator was pushing out these amazing smells that quickly awakened my senses. They smelled so warm and delicious. My husband had one after lunch and he loved it, which he isn’t to fond of oats. So that is a great sign. A friend ours, Jason, had one and he said it was amazing. He shared that Oatmeal Raisin cookies are one of his all time favorites. So, when someone compliments a creation like that, it’s the best kind of all. We all have childhood favorite foods that carry on into adulthood. Those foods are most likely cooked foods that are loaded with unhealthy fats, sugars and flours. So when someone takes a bite of a raw, healthy creation and it immediately takes them back to an old-time favorite comfort food (cooked version) and find it just as good, well, need I really say more?
Raw outs are becoming more available on the market. If you are truthfully concerned about consuming only raw ingredients be sure to really double-check with the manufacture. Most oats are lightly steamed to prolong their shelf life. You can read a short snippet here about different oats.
Yields 12 large ice scoop cookies
You can see the difference in color from the beginning stage of dehydrating to the completed cookie.
