Banana Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies (Super Charged)

Banana Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Wait until you read the super charged ingredients in these little cookies. I was playing around in the kitchen today with new recipes and wanted to make an extremely nutritious cookie for the children, and hubby too. You can easily make these totally raw by purchasing raw oats. I just used really good organic oats today. Grind the raw oats to make the oat flour that I refer to in the recipe.
I got out a big bowl, opened up the pantry and literally made this recipe up as I added each ingredient. I just threw in what ever I thought would taste good together and here is the result.
You can make these two ways like I did. Keep some of them cold in the fridge and dehydrate the rest till desired texture; store those in an airtight container on the counter. Eat within two days....ours will be gone in one! My husband and children like both versions. My husband liked the dehydrated a bit more than the cold cookie. My older two children thought the dehydrated ones tasted like a chocolate banana bread. They are really good both ways. Enjoy!

Banana Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
by Elizabeth

In a large mixing bowl, mash 1 and 1/2 bananas with a fork until smooth. Stir in with a fork, the following, in this order:
1 T raw cacao powder
1 T raw carob powder
1 T raw almond butter
pinch of sea salt
1 capful of vanilla extract
1 T Agave or real maple syrup
1 T Lucuma powder
1 T Hemp seeds
1/8 C buckwheat krispies
1 1/3 Cups  Organic Oats (add 1/3 of a cup at a time, mixing in between)
3/8 C Organic Oat flour (add 1/8 of a cup at a time using less or more      depending on consistency of your dough)
Allow dough to sit a few minutes to moisten the oats. Flour your hands and shape the dough into cookies. Lay half of them onto wax paper and refrigerate. With the remaining cookies, dehydrate them on Teflex sheets at 105 degrees until they reach your desired texture. Ours were dry on the outside yet chewy in the middle, perfect!

~JMJ~ Today I am grateful that our 4 year old is feeling better. He was under the weather for 3 days. Boy was it tough! I don't know if he was detoxing or just picked up a virus, but I am very glad he is better. I LOVE you Eric Jr.
