Sivananda Cookies original recipe with Anna's options

SIVANANDA OATMEAL COOKIES ( the original recipe with Anna’s edits below)

These are very popular in all of the Sivananda Ashram locations. The students like to have a nutritious cookie after taking a Yoga class. They are good for you, they are filling, and they taste SOOOOO good. Makes about 20 cookies.

Ingredients:

3 1/2 cups oatmeal

2 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

1/2 cup raisins

1 cup ground almonds or hazelnuts

3/4 cup oil

1 1/2 cups honey

3/4 cup milk

1/4 tsp. Salt

3/4 tsp. Nutmeg

1 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon

1 tbsp. baking powder

Anna's edits - I add a bit of orange essence. I use agave nectar instead of honey, and sunflower seeds instead of almonds. I use gluten-free flour ( brown rice or a mixture) and gluten-free oats. You can also add a flax egg ( 1 T flax to 3 T water) so that it sticks together better. Finally, some cranberries really make this recipe lovely!

Instructions:

Mix wet ingredients. Mix and sift all dry ingredients (except nuts) into the wet ones. Now add the ground nuts. Shape cookies 2 to 3 inches onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes.
