raw oatmeal "cookies"


Happy Labor Day!  I don't know if it's socially acceptable to wish a happy Labor Day, but it seems appropriate today.

Being a long weekend, my husband and I got to travel a bit, go to a wedding, see some friends and family we haven't seen in a while, and just relax.  Needless to say, we ate lots of (unhealthy) delicious food.  We're in a bit of a detox mode now.



It's the kind of night when stir-fried veggies and whole wheat pasta sounds amazing.  It was.  And, for a healthy, sweet finish, we had some of these "cookies".  They require no oven (it's too hot for that kind of silliness today), no eggs, and no added fat.  They're made from things you already have at home (or maybe just us...this may be just about all we have in our pantry at the moment with grocery day being tomorrow).  The raisins are pretty well covered up taste-wise, so if you want a raisin-y cookie, add more of them (and cut down or completely eliminate the honey).


Raw Oatmeal "Cookies"
Makes a dozen

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 c rolled oats
  • 1/4 c flax seed meal
  • 1/3 c raisins
  • 1-4 tbsp honey
Place the oats, flax seed meal, and raisins in a food processor and process.  Add honey, 1 tbsp at a time, until the mixture is sticky.  Once the mixture comes together completely and is sticky, roll it into 1" balls, flattening them before putting them on a plate.  Cover the "cookies" and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
