Quinoa “Oatmeal” Raisin Cookies taste just like an oatmeal cookie!! I interrupt this posting to state as of today (Dec. 14, 2015) that I have removed the word “Oatmeal” from the recipe title. I have made this cookie several times now and it doesn’t remind me of oatmeal cookies as it once did. lol And I don’t want to set up expectations for others.
They are very moist and chewy. Best of all, they are gluten-free, dairy free, free of artificial sweeteners and they are raw!! Which means that you are going to get every bit of nutrients that you can out of those mighty fine ingredients.
P.S. I have included a baking option for those of you who don’t own a dehydrator. You are still light years ahead of purchasing commercially processed cookies. So I am proud of you for being here. I do recommend in time that you invest in one as it will open up a whole new culinary world to you. :) I highly recommend the 9 tray Excalibur dehydrator.
You also have the option of using sprouted or cooked quinoa. Some people have a harder time digesting raw quinoa so please just listen to your body.
I didn’t include a side by side photo of the cooked and the raw version. They didn’t really change color or show any significant difference in appearance. I will however say that I liked the raw version better. It was chewier and the flavor was just …. deeper? Hard to explain. They were both good but I will stick to dehydrating them.
Yields 17 (1/4 cup each) cookies
