Recipe: healthy oatmeal cookies

Today was Micah's first swimming lesson. We froze! But we still had fun. 
After coming home I was in the mood to bake to try and warm my bones up. I knew that a certain little goober was going to be wanting to eat this so I wanted to come up with a healthy cookie that would satisfy my cookie craving but that I could also feed Micah without having him buzz on a sugar high all afternoon. 

So I present to you...
What you need!
1c - steel cut oats
1/2c - raisins
1/4t - baking soda
1/4t - sea salt
1/2t - vanilla
2T - coconut oil
4T - coconut milk (or milk of choice)
2 - eggs

Nuts, shredded coconut, cinnamon 

Put oats, raisins, baking soda, salt into blender. Pulse til raisins are chopped.

Mix together vanilla, coconut oil, coconut milk and eggs.

Add wet mixture into dry mixture and stir til mixed together.

Form into balls and bake at 375 for 6-8 minutes. This recipe makes roughly 20-22 cookies depending on how big you make them.

These cookies and son AND husband approved and I feel good feeding these to them. 

Hope you enjoy!
