1 1/2 cups regular rolled oats
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 cup almond meal (see below to make your own)
1 cup dried fruit (I use craisins, but any dried fruit is good)
3 bananas, mashed
1/4 cup canola oil (I use coconut oil)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Notes / Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine everything into a bowl and mix until well blended, adding dried fruits last. Cookies retain the same shape that you spoon them into. Spoon into a round, thick, flat blob. Bake for about 20 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
***These freeze GREAT! After done cooking, let them cool and put into zip lock bags and freeze them. I just ate one while it was still frozen and it was delicious!
If you've got a good blender, it's easy to make your own almond meal. It might have a little more texture to it but you can't tell in the cookies. Put about 1-2 handfuls of almonds (sliced, whole, slivered) into your blender and blend till it's smooth. The smoother, the better.
