Reindeer Crunch Cookies

One of our favourite Holiday Cookies (but great any time of the year too!) the unique sweet and tart taste of the cranberries, combined with the rolled oats (instead of flour) and no refined sugar makes it a real hit around our house.

Reindeer Crunch Cookies

  • 3-4 bananas (4 bananas makes a softer cookie, 3 makes a more crunchy one)
  • 3/4 cup almonds, chopped
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 8 dates, pitted and chopped

Preheat oven to 375º F.

Mash banana with fork in mixing bowl until it is a soft puree.

Cut each date into tiny pieces and add to bowl with mashed banana along with almonds, rolled oats, cinnamon and cranberries. Mix thoroughly.

Drop dough by tablespoonful onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, pressing and shaping into the size cookie you desire.

Bake 15 minutes, then allow to cool.
