The Buddha was known for his predilection of sweets. These Buddha cookies would have made a nice treat while sitting under the Bodhi Tree. Both nutritious and delicious, the cookies deliver on the fiber and anti-oxidants. The combination of ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, cumin and black pepper make this a healing snack on your path to enlightenment or sinful self-indulgence.
3 cups oats
1 cup almond or other type of meal flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ginger powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
Pinch of ground cayenne pepper
1 banana, pureed in food processor
1/4 cup Fructevia, Steviva Brand Stevia Blend or a tiny dash of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons molasses
1 cup nut milk (soy, coconut or rice milk)
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
¾ cup raisins
½ cup dark chocolate, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 375 F.
In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. In a separate bowl mix all wet ingredients and half of the milk and add them to the dry ingredients and stir just to combine. If necessary, add remaining milk, but make sure you do not make it too liquid.
Scoop tablespoon sized portions on greased baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes. If you want a softer cookie, bake 8 - 10 minutes, and for more crisp cookies 16-20 minutes, but I find it perfect baked for 15 minutes.
