We all love this recipe, especially my 6 year old daughter. We often have these for breakfast, so much better for you than processed cereals. This recipe is inspired by Juliano's recipe, but is quite different.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups oats (groats, whole)
  • 12 cup almonds
  • 12 cup raisins
  • 12 cup agave nectar (or maple syrup)
  • 14 cup cashews


  1. Put oat groats in food processor and grind until fine. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
  2. Put almonds in food processor and pulse a few times to chop them until just coarsely chopped. Transfer to bowl with the oats.
  3. Add raisins and agave nectar to bowl and mix everything well.
  4. Grind cashews in coffee grinder, and use this to coat your palms as you handle the cookie batter.
  5. Take small chunks of dough and flatten into rounds on the mesh sheet of a dehydrator tray.
  6. Dehydrate for about 12 hours on 110 degrees. Dehydrating time needed will vary according to how thick you've made the cookies, and the desired chewy/crunchy-ness. :).

I don't have a dehydrator, but decided to just have the batter as granola, as someone else suggested. When I first made it, it seemed tooth-curlingly sweet, but after sitting in the fridge overnight, the agave seems to have made its way through the nuts and oats, and now it's just right. Thanks!

REALLY GOOD My new favorite treat...The batter makes a super raw granola too if you get lazy about handling the cookie dough ;) ...wetting your hand makes it easier to deal with the dough {{I used coconut oil and gave myself a simultaneous beauty treatment to boot ;) }} I left some as directed and played with others by adding flax seed, sesame and chopped it's pretty versatile ~Oh, I must try carob now based on the other reviewers suggestion! - BTW I got over 30 cookies {{& that was with a LOT of batter licking ;) :) }} GREAT RECIPE I will be making this regularly ~~Thanks RawFoodNut! :) :)

These were good! I had a hard time getting them to stick together. I added a ground flax seed/water mixture and psyllium husk powder to make a binder. I also added some cinnamon and coconut oil. I got a little crazy but they're yummy! We just put ours in the fridge instead of the dehydrator.
