Sugar Free Oat Drop Cookies

While I have a few minutes to blog, I had to post my favorite sugarless recipe, so far. They're also perfect for someone with allergies because they can be gluten free and do not contain eggs. Intriguing, right? You can't stop at just one of these. I dare you to try. And FYI, the dough is just as good as the cookie. The best part, these are so healthy, you could eat them for breakfast! Now who doesn't want to eat cookies for breakfast? 

Sugar Free Oat Drop Cookies
(adapted from this recipe)

1 1/2 cups regular rolled oats
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 cup of almond meal or flour
1/2 cup mixed nuts, finely chopped
1 cup dried fruit (I used raisins and craisins)

3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325F. Grease baking sheet.

In a large bowl, combine rolled oats, almond meal or flour, mixed nuts and coconut flakes. Stir in allspice and cinnamon. Add dried fruit and stir until well and evenly mixed. Make sure the dried fruit do not stick together in big batches.
In another bowl, combine canola oil, mashed banana and vanilla extract. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and stir until well combined.

Place on baking sheet 2 inches apart in one inch balls, slightly flattened. Bake for about 20 minutes or until edges are golden brown.

Makes about 2 dozen. Enjoy. :)
