These are some of the best oatmeal cookies I have ever had. And I'm not a big oatmeal cookie eater. We always have them around Christmas time but I never eat them. But these I might make and start as a tradition in my home for the holidays. :)
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup coconut
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 cup almond meal
1/2 cup almonds finely chopped (or whatever nut you prefer)
1 cup raisins(you can do other dried fruit too)
3 bananas mashed
1/4 canola oil
1tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Combine rolled oats, coconut, almonds, and almond meal in a large bowl. Add in cinnamon and allspice. Add in fruit and mix until evenly distributed.
In another bowl mix the bananas, canola oil and vanilla. Pour into dry mix bowl and mix thoroughly.
Drop onto cookie sheet in tablespoons and press it down with the back of the spoon.
Bake for about 20 minutes or until they start to brown on the edges.
