Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Here’s a modern version of old-fashioned cookies with the sweet maple flavor of Medjool dates, a sprinkling of raisins, and a hint of cinnamon. The recipe calls for raw oats. Regular quick oats or steel cut oats will work, too, though they are not technically raw, as they’re cooked during processing. Your cookies will still taste delicious either way.

1 cup raw oats
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1⁄2 cup firmly packed pitted Medjool
1⁄2 cup raisins

Combine the oats and cinnamon in the food processor and process into small pieces. Add the dates and process to mix well. Add the raisins and pulse to mix.
Press about 3 tablespoons of the dough into cookie cutters on a sheet tray lined with parchment, or roll the dough into balls and flatten.
Serve immediately or store in sealed container or bag.
Will keep for a week at room temperature or for many weeks in the refrigerator or freezer. Thaw for 15 minutes before eating.
