Vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
makes 12

This recipe is from The Health Promoting Cookbook, by Alan Goldhamer, D.C., published by Book Publishing Company, Summertown, TN 38483. If you like cookies to be really sweet, you probably won’t like these. I do like them because they are not terribly sweet. There is no refined sugar in the cookies. The sweetness comes from the raisins, bananas, and apple juice. There is also no added oil or salt, which is why they are in The Health Promoting Cookbook. They are, of course, quick, easy, good (at least I think so), and vegan.

4 cups oat flour (It can be oatmeal ground in a blender or food processor.)

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

2 ripe bananas, mashed

1 cup apple juice

½ cup raisins

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl.

In a food processor blend the bananas and apple juice until smooth.

Slowly add the flour mixture while mixing in the food processor.

Pour the batter into the large bowl. Add the raisins. Drop by spoonfuls onto a nonstick baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees F.
