Sometimes, when people pass us by at markets, they look over our tempting offerings and say, reluctantly, “No, no, I’m trying to be good.”
That’s good. We like to be good, too. In fact, I plan to use the word “good” several times in this little post. Before these downhearted wayfarers move on, we point them to our Un-Cookies, if they’re not all gone already.
Why? Because they’re good, and because they’re good. For you. They’re good, and good for you when you’re being good.
So what do these people think, you ask? They love it. That’s not doing you much good, but it’s true.
What’s in them that makes them so good and good for the good? Glad you asked! Here you go:
3 medium-sized bananas, 1.5 cups of oatmeal, 0.5 cup of raw shredded coconut, 0.5 cup of dried blueberries, 0.5 cup of chopped almonds, 0.25 cup of chopped pecans, 0.25 cup of coconut oil, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 0.5 teaspoon of salt, 0.5 teaspoon of allspice, and 1 generous bushel of Cassie Magic.
They don’t taste like “healthy” food. They taste like food. Good food. Good food prepared by Good Baker Cassie which actually makes it great food (but I’m trying to say “good” a lot).
Here’s a link to MyFitnessPal’s little nutritional label thingy, just in case you’re counting.
EAT LIKE THE WIND!
Also, for those who like ingredients but aren’t sure what we do with them:
Firstly, combine the dry ingredients. Then, use a food processor to puree the bananas, coconut oil, and vanilla. Keep your fingers OUT. Mix together and no quitting until it’s mixed WELL. Get an old biscuit cutter (or get a new one and sort of scuff it up a little) and smash the mixture into it with a spoon. Bake at 350 delightful degrees for 20 loooong minutes*. Each batch makes about twelve 2-1/2″ cookies. If yours doesn’t, you did it WRONG. So try again. You can remix the nuts and their amounts to your heart’s content or till someone else’s heart is content. Just make sure you have a total of 3/4 cup of nuts (not people that are nuts – we don’t eat those).
*long minutes are standard 60 second-minutes passed with more than usual impatience
