Ingredients for oatmeal cookies

  • 3 eggs
  • cinnamon
  • cardamom
  • 4 tbsp melted extra virgin coconut oil (Amanprana)
  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 500 gram fine oat flakes (or 300 gram oats, 100 gram almond flour and
  • 100 gram oat bran)
  • approx. 4 tsp Gula Java Fin (Amanprana)
  • 4-6 tbsp chopped, unroasted nut mix
  • 4 tbsp grated coconut
  • 4 tsp sunflower seeds
  • 4 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • a couple of unsulphured (finely chopped) apricots,
  • prunes or figs
  • a large dash of lemon juice
  • pinch of salt

Preparation of oatmeal cookies

Put the eggs, cinnamon, cardamom, coconut oil and bananas into a bowl and puree with a hand blender. Then add the oat flakes and oat bran and mix through. Add Gula Java, nut mix, coconut, seeds, apricots, lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Taste and, if necessary, add extra cinnamon, coconut or another ingredient. Wet your hands and make small balls of dough. Press down hard. Place on baking parchment and bake in the oven for about 45 minutes at 150 degrees. These biscuits are a bit fiddly but are very healthy. That is why it might be a good idea to make a bigger batch and then freeze some. The above amounts will provide you with quite a few biscuits.

Tip from Rineke:

A biscuit can provide some valuable nutritional substances. Almost all of our snacks contain empty calories. This means that our bodies ‘borrow' vital substances from the body in order to digest and metabolise the food in our cells. As a result, we end up with a lack of substances and the energy production in our cells diminishes. Too little energy production is one of the causes of premature ageing and chronic sicknesses.
