This non Trim Healthy Mama recipe was developed for my partner, who needs extra protein-rich snacks to eat at work. I took my inspiration from this recipe: http://thehealthyfoodie.com/high-protein-heatlhy-oatmeal-cookies/
If you are a Trim Healthy Mama, do not use my recipe, instead use the link above and make sure to choose a sprouted grain flour and substitute unsweetened dried cranberries for the raisins.
1 1/3c sprouted brown rice flour
2/3c arrowroot powder
1T baking powder
3/4c Brazil nut protein powder (available from rawpower.com)
3/4c butter (1 1/2 sticks), softened at room temperature
1/4c milk or milk substitute
4c gluten free oats (may substitute quinoa flakes)
1c finely chopped almonds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. If butter is not already soft, put it on the warm stovetop to soften, but keep a close eye on it. ;)
In a very large bowl, combine first six ingredients and whisk well.
In a separate bowl, cream honey and butter. Beat in remaining wet ingredients. I used a whisk because I do not have a blender, and did just fine.
Pour wet ingredients into dry, and mix gingerly with a wooden spoon. Fold in oats, raisins, and chopped almonds.
Form cookies using a 1/4c measure. Place on a cookie sheet which you have either greased or lined with a piece of parchment paper. Press down each cookie; cookies do not spread during baking. Bake until the bottoms of the cookies are lightly golden. After cooling, we like to store these in the freezer in an airtight container, and just take a couple out at a time to pack in lunches.
