Tropical Trail Mix Cookies

(vegan, gluten free, oil free, refined-sugar free, nut free, soy free, gum free)

¾ c oat flour (certified GF)

¾ c oats (certified GF)

½ tsp baking soda

¾ c unsweetened, desiccated coconut

2 pkts Stevia (I used NuNaturals brand)

1/8 tsp (or less) salt

¼ c raisins

¼ c dried cranberries

¼ mini chocolate chips (I used vegan chips)

¾ c banana puree (made from 3 medium bananas)

Preheat the oven to 350F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Combine the oat flour, oats, baking soda, salt, stevia, and coconut in a medium sized bowl. Stir with a whisk or fork to combine. Add the reaming dry ingredients (raisins, dried cranberries, chocolate chips) and stir to combine. Add the banana and mix just until everything is moistened and sticking together (don’t over mix).

Drop cookies by the scooper full (I used a medium scooper) onto the parchment lined baking sheets, slightly flatten each cookie with a fork, and cook for about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and promptly place cookies on a wire cooling rack (or their bottoms will get soggy).

Allow to thoroughly cool for best flavor and texture.

    • Hum…Pamela, I’m not sure! The stevia I buy is the Nu Naturals brand and it’s cut with maltadextrin (maltodextrin?) so it’s diluted a little, and it comes in little packets. If you want to use liquid, I’d start with one small dropper full, or about 10 drops. If you have the powdered stevia with the little, tiny scooper (from a big bottle), I’d try one, tiny scooper. You may need to adjust your sweetness based on the ripeness of your bananas and what dried fruits you add. I made another batch of these with golden raisins and currents, and it was sweet enough without adding any stevia.
