Guilt-Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

  • 1 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. allspice
  • 1/2 cup mixed nuts, finely chopped (I used pecans, walnuts and almonds)
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  In one bowl, combine rolled oats, coconut flakes, salt, cinnamon, allspice and chopped mixed nuts.  Stir in raisins and set aside.
In a smaller bowl, whisk together mashed bananas, Greek yogurt and vanilla extract until smooth and all lumps are gone.  Pour over dry ingredients and mix well.
Using a round cookie cutter (or shape with your hands), spoon mixture into the cutter pressing firmly then removing the cutter.  Shape should keep form; do this until you have 20 cookies or you run out of batter.  Bake at 350 degrees F for about 15 to 20 minutes and enjoy!
