Minute Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Author: 
Serves: 4
 
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • 1 very ripe banana, mashed
  • ½ Tbsp. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 3 Tbsp. rolled oats
  • 1 Tbsp. peanut butter
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon (we often add even more as we’re big cinnamon fans)
Instructions
  1. Place raisins in a small bowl with water to allow the raisins to plump.
  2. If using an oven rather than microwave, preheat to 375°F.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, combine banana, almond milk, and peanut butter, stirring until thoroughly combined. Stir in cinnamon and remove raisins from water and mix them in.
  4. If using microwave: For one large cookie, simply spread mixture in bowl and microwave on high for 4-1/2 minutes. If you are making four cookies you can spray a plate, 4 small bowls or 4 ramekins. (The ramekins are nice to keep the cookies contained and perfectly round.)
  5. Scoop out about 2-1/2 tablespoons each, and flatten on the plate or in ramekin. Repeat for each ramekin.
  6. Place the four ramekins or the one plate in microwave on high for 4 minutes. Depending on the strength of your microwave cooking time may vary. Simply use a toothpick or a fork and poke cookie the whole way through. *If wetness comes off on fork or toothpick, continue to put back in microwave in 30 second increments until cooked.
