My first crack at vegan cookies… and they turned out really yummy. Not just IMHO, but everyone in the family – even the picky 6-year-old nephew liked them. Woot!

Yield: 2 dozen cookies


3 cups quick oats
1 cup Nectar of the Gods (aka NOTG)
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup dried tart cherries
1 cup raw macadamia nuts, rough chop
3 ripe bananas (not totally brown peels, but lots of brown spots)
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 cup raw coconut
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cookie sheet with parchment paper. Mix together NOTG and bananas until fully mixed well. Add oats, 1 cup at a time, until mixed through. Add all other ingredients and mix until well combined and very sticky. Add water 1 tablespoon at a time to make sure that you have a good sticky consistency. You don’t want the cookies to fall apart in the oven… then you’ll just have really chunky granola. Bake 15-18 minutes (depending on your oven). Cool on cookie rack. Store in container… if they last that long!
