Thumbs up Delicious healthy cookies! GF/DF

Even my very picky, sugar loving teen likes these.

Only sweeteners are bananas and some honey/maple syrup.

Here's the list of ingredients for your perusal, before you go to the link:

Ripe bananas
Honey/maple syrup
Eggs (I think an egg sub would be fine)
Baking soda
Peanut butter (or any nut/seed butter)
Oat flour (don't see why any GF flour wouldn't work)
Chia seeds (very important for thickening the batter)
Craisins, raisins, and pepitas. (Could sub whatever you like)
Cinnamon
Vanilla

The batter has to chill at least 4 hours. The recipe said to use a 1/4 cup scoop for each cookie but I used a regular cookie scoop and got 24 cookies instead of 12.

Normally, sweets make me feel kinda icky but these don't.

Default Re: Delicious healthy cookies! GF/DF

Thanks for the recipe! My oldest made these a couple of times and she really liked them.

I decided to fool around with the recipe a little today. We have peanut allergies here, so I used almond butter, we're out of pepitas and sunflower seeds (and I'm craving carrot cake, of all things!) so I subbed grated carrot for them and replaced the craisins with regular raisins. I almost added crushed pineapple, but decided against it. Maybe next time! (Along with perhaps coconut and/or flax.)

Verdict comes tomorrow after the batter has sufficiently chilled and I can bake them.

Default Re: Delicious healthy cookies! GF/DF

We are neither GF nor DF but I am always looking for healthy snack foods around (ds ate 6! muffins so far today. In between large meals).
I have 2 question groups:

1. Oat flour? Is it expensive.
If yes, how so compared to regular flour.
If its a large difference can I use regular flour?

2. Healthwise. Oat Flour compared to wheat flour. Very healthy even if we are not GF?

Oat flour is cheap; it's just ground oats. I whiz the Quaker oats that I buy in bulk at Costco in my blender. (Food pro works, too. )

Depends on your idea of healthy - but oat flour is a whole grain, so much lower glycemic index than white AP flour. I'm sure you could sub whole wheat if you don't have oats.

They're soft cookies, more like a muffin or drop scone texture.

I have made a similar recipe and that is the texture I get too. They freeze really well.

Yep, to make oat flour, just put the amount in your food processor. I think any flour would work just fine.

As long as they have oat flour in stock, I am going to get oat flour. I think its a good idea to vary their diet as much as possible especially with all the food they eat.

I am thinking of doing a big early August bake and fill my freezer with muffins and these cookies if they are a hit (or other). As well as maybe some soups they can pour over noodles. fill it with healthy foods rather than processed foods for the soccer season.

then do it again over winter break for the Spring season.

Default Re: Delicious healthy cookies! GF/DF

These are a BIG BIG BIG hit here.
I used honey instead of syrup. No real reason other than I have more honey and syrup and dh occasionally makes pancakes as a special occasion.
DD LOVED them. DS loved them as a snack but stated they weren't really cookies and states we shouldn't call them so. I explained think of them as a healthy snack. DH loves them and says we need to take these hiking instead of cliff bars and such.
the only thing is they did flatten a little bit. I only did the 4 hours instead of overnight so will chill dough overnight to see if it get more rise (<-- I am sensing a pattern with my baking lately). But they weren't completely flat at all. And my people don't care, Ill just do it for comparison sake.
Will definitely make again soon!
