Oat Groat – Dehydrator Cookies
~ Recipe: Cindy, adapted from Rejuvenate Your Life, by Serene Allison
This is one of those very forgiving recipes that is perfect for the creative at heart and healthy for the body.
1 cup soaked whole raw oat groats (soaked overnight)
Pure maple syrup or honey (gauge as you mix to get the desired texture)
Pure vanilla extract
- Drain the oat groats.
- Put into the blender with a good dash of vanilla and a good splash of maple syrup or honey (about 1/4 cup). Start small with the maple syrup and add more as needed.
- Blend in food processor until smooth – it will be looser than cookie dough but not runny. Scrape into mixing bowl.
- Now the fun begins – add any, all, or whatever else to your mixture: a handful of favorite chopped nuts, seeds, dried fruit, fresh fruit such as diced apples, sliced bananas, coconut, coco nips…
- Drop by the spoonful onto teflon sheets. Dry on low heat. Once the cookies firm up transfer to mesh sheets. Dehydrate until the cookies are the texture you desire.
If you don’t have a dehydrator you could still make these cookies. Cook on low heat in your oven.
