So I have been doing a more healthy eating, less snacking type thing on the weekends. You know, trying to act like a normal person. I am a true snacker, and not having something to snack on was driving my mind crazy. So in comes some sugar-free, homemade cookies. I have made this cookie a couple other times, in different flavors, to help during this no-snacking thing, so it was time to do that again. I figured instead of a banana cookie why not try some other type of fresh fruit? Tart raspberries! Here are my sugar-free, gluten-free and vegan Tart Raspberry Oat Cookies.
These cookies are tart! So beware of it, they will bite back. I love it though. They are not sweet at all even though I did add the chocolate stevia (which is too sinful for words!). I won the stevia in a contest (woohoo for being a winner!) and wanted to try it in a cookie recipe. I tasted it on my finger and oh, goodness, it was amazing – like just pour down your throat good. And the reason I gave up chocolate! But it added no real flavor to these cookies, so it wasn’t technically necessary, but I liked having a calorie-free choc option! So these cookies were really what my taste-buds and mind needed for the semi stay-on-track weekend. And they are so easy what is not to love about these tarty goodies?
First heat up your oven then dump your dry ingredients into a smallish bowl and mix. In a larger bowl pour your wet ingredients and raspberry and mash together with a spoon. Add your dry ingredients a little at a time and mix. These are meant to be small-bite cookies, so use a teaspoon to portion out the cookies. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Let them sit and cool a little before devouring … or pacing yourself and eating randomly. Enjoy!
