After I baked apple and cinnamon tea cake a couple of weeks ago, I decided to try another recipe from Teresa Cutter with similar ingredients but a different taste. These breakfast cookies turned out delicious and are perfect as a morning or afternoon snack (just remember to have one at a time).
Ingredients (makes 12):
1 cup apple puree or mashed ripe banana
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 cup olive oil or coconut oil
1 tbs honey
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup dried apple, chopped
Preheat oven to 160C. Combine apple puree, vanilla, ground cinnamon, oil and honey. Add oats, coconut, raisins and dried apple. Mix together with hands, squeezing the mixture together until it starts to bind. Form into 12 cookies and roll them in oats for decoration. Place onto a lined baking tray and flatten slightly. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden. Cool, then serve.
