I love cookies. The recipes on this website and other websites have inspired me of making my own raw cookies. I love oatmeal, and specially in cookies, so I came up with this recipe.
Chewy and firm apricot-prunes cookies, no need for dehydratation, with oatmeal (soaked raw steal-cut oat grots). A perfect breakfast with almond milk, a day snack, dessert or late night treat. My husband loved them!

I found the original recipe at www.therawtable.com but I adapted it. I used carob powder (no cocoa) and added maca and mesquite powder for an extra rich flavor. I was amazed by the result when using carob, mesquite and maca powder. It is like a carobe brownie mixture. It is delicious, sweet, not to sweet, and creamy flavor. One even does not notice it contains raisings. I found this mixture also could be used as a pie crust. I was hesitant to use walnuts, as the recipe calls for, because I find then to have a strong flavor, but it does not taste to walnuts at all. The flavors of this recipe blend very well into a one flavor mixture.
“It tastes just like gingerbread, yummy!” That was my mum’s answer when I asked her to taste one of these cookies and to tell me what she thought was in it:)
yummm… cookie dough! it’s really good chilled. And, you pop them in the dehyrator, you’ve got what i call breakfast cookies!
These are nice and chewy! They harden up real good when left out on a plate for a couple hours, either way is really good. This will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth!
