Cinnamon Raisin cookies…not your typical cookie. I remember being a kid and never liking cinnamon raisin cookies because they sounded kind of healthy. And raisins just always seemed like more of an adult snack – no sugar coating, no gummy texture, no fun colors – they were definitely not in the “candy” category. So I was really excited when I saw my niece and nephew eagerly grab these cookies right after I made them!
I teamed up with Fiber d’Lish to create these Cinnamon Raisin No-Bake Oat Cookies. They are soft and chewy and have that warm cinnamon flavor. They are also simple to make so I was able to get the kids involved when I made them! The Cinnamon Raisin Fiber D’lish bar offers the perfect amount of cinnamon flavor so there is hardly a need to add anything else!I like to store them in the freezer or refrigerator and eat them cold – it adds some depth to their texture. These will definitely make to this year’s Thanksgiving table. I shared some with my family over the weekend and they were instant fans. I can even imagine making ice cream sandwiches with some banana ice cream in between these cookies…Yum!!I added protein powder so that this cookie can be a post-workout treat and hold you over till your next meal. It’s a pretty satisfying and filling snack. The protein content slows down absorption of the other nutrients, giving you more bang for your buck! You can always omit the protein and add extra oats if you prefer.
- 2 Cinnamon Raisin Fiber d’lish bars
- 1 serving/scoop of plant based vanilla protein powder
- 3/4 cup dates
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 2 tablespoons of nut butter
- 1/4 cup nuts ( I used almonds)
- 1/2 cup oats
- In a food processor process the 2 bars until a crumble powder forms, then add your protein powder and process again.
- Add raisins, dates and nut butter process again until everything is combined.
- Lastly add nuts and oats. Pulse until coarse, leaving the nuts and oats not completely ground. You may need to mix with your hand.
- Take a small ice cream scooper or tablespoon and form cookies. Pat down and place raisins to garnish. Set in the freezer on a tray. Once frozen you can store them in a container or ziplock — keep frozen or let thaw 5 minutes before serving.
