Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Chews or Muffins

makes approx 16 cookies or 12 muffins

1 banana
1/4 C Maple Syrup
1/4 C Agave
1/2 C coconut milk (McDougall Program – use low fat soy or rice milk)
1 C Oat Flour
2T Flax Seeds
1/4 C Flax Meal
1/2 t Baking Soda
1/2 t Salt
1/2 t pumpkin (or apple) pie spice
1 1/2 C Instant Oatmeal
1/2 C Raisins

preheat oven 325 F

In small bowl blend all wet ingredients
In separate Medium bowl mix all dry ingredients except last 2.  Once well mixed add last 2 ingredients well.  Add wet to dry and mix well.

For Cookie Chews:  Line a baking sheet with brown parchment paper. Spoon out desired cookie sized, spread out on the sheet.  Bake 12-15 minutes on 325F or until light golden brown.

For muffins: In a non-stick muffin tin, fill about 1/2 way. bake 20 min or until light golden brown.

For gluten free – be sure the oat flour and oatmeal is labeled gluten free.

They are very light and fluffy, and dissolve in your mouth.  I find them best as muffins, but they are great both ways.
