Oatmeal Cookies Made Simple

Rolled Oats


  • 1 cup rolled oats (not quick-cooking)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 – 3 tbsp agave nectar or raw honey
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup raisins or chopped dates


  1. Combine the dry ingredients (oats, cinnamon, baking powder).
  2. Combine agave and applesauce in a small bowl; add raisins or dates.
  3. Mix dry and wet ingredients together.
  4. Using a rounded tablespoon, place the mixture on a cookie sheet with a silicone liner. (I use a small ice cream scoop.)
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.


You may want to add a few more oats if you use 3 tablespoons of agave. The cookies should not be too wet.
