So I found this recipe on Pinterest and wanted to try them. It said they were healthy so that was motivating in and of itself. They weren't bad. I didn't use as many raisins as the recipe called for, I had to make my own "almond meal" since I couldn't find it at my locat store. They are a bit crumbly and very nutty, which I liked also. NO sugar, butter, eggs or anything that can be considered unhealthy. You can freeze them individually and you have a easy breakfast on the go, that contains your protein and carbs to set you up for the day. Also, I wasn't sure about the whole "cookie cutter" part so I just dropped them on the cookie sheet and threw them in the oven. Here's the recipe:

No Sugar Oat Drops
1 1/2 cups regular rolled oats
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 cup of almond meal
1/2 cup mixed nuts, finely chopped
1 cup dried fruit (I used 1/2 chopped dried dates, and 1/2 raisins)

3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 175C. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine rolled oats, almond meal, mixed nuts and coconut flakes. Stir in allspice and cinnamon. Add dried fruit and stir until well and evenly mixed. Make sure the dried fruit do not stick together in big batches.

In another bowl, combine canola oil, mashed banana and vanilla extract. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and stir until well combined.

Take a large cookie cutter and press spoonfuls of the batter into it. Remove cookie cutter. Bake for about 20 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
