These cookies are always a win in my family, it's like eating granola with fruits. The main flavor is apple but you can also taste the spices and oats. They are very easy to make, you just chop everything, roast the oats and apples, and let everything cool down for a bit.
- 300 ml rolled oats
- 2 apples, chopped
- 4 bananas, mashed
- 80 ml apple juice
- 285 ml chopped walnuts
- 20 ml apples, dried
- 120 ml raisins
- 120 ml oat flour
- 12 ml ground ginger
- 15 ml cinnamon
- 5 ml cloves
- 5 ml mace
- 5 ml nutmeg
- 5 ml baking powder
- 5 ml salt
Preheat oven to 350F. Like a baking sheet with parchment paper. Prepare the oats. Spread the rolled oats on a pan and bake for 20 minutes. They should become brown and spread delicious aroma. Remove the oats from the oven, place them on a plate, let it cool for 10 minutes.
Take a skillet, spray it with a cooking spray. Place the pan over a medium heat and add apples. Cook the fruits for 2-4 minutes, they should become very tender. Scrape the apples into a bowl, let it cool for 10 minutes. Add bananas and juice and stir.
Take another bowl, add the rest of the ingredients. Pour the mixture into the bowl with apples and mix the dough together. The dough shouldn't have any clumps. Cover the bowl with a plate or wrap and let it sit on a counter for 15 minutes.
Tale an ice cream scoop, portion the dough on a baking sheet. You can also use a measuring cup to portion cookies. They should be of the same size to cook evenly. Cover the portions with a wrap, press down every cookie with a bottom of a glass. They should be 0.5 inch thick.
Bake the cookies for 15 minutes until they are brown. Remove them from oven and let them cool down for 2 minutes. Cookies are very delicious hot and cold. This amount of ingredients will make 30 cookies.
