I had a hankering for something chewy and substantial with my morning cuppa the other day, so I whipped up these Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.
I adapted a lactation cookie recipe I made on repeat a few months ago when my baby was born. I pulled out the brewers’ yeast and flax meal and added some chia and almond butter for healthy fats.
I tried these cookies with and without added sweetener, and in my opinion they don’t actually need it, they’re sweet enough using the banana alone. However, after years of eating ‘sugar free’, my taste buds have adjusted to tasting even the slightest amount of natural sweetness, so if you’re newer to this whole food journey, you might want to add it in.
As more and more schools are going ‘nut free’, many mums tell me they have problems finding baking options for their kiddos lunch boxes that comply. By omitting the almond or peanut butter from this recipe, you will not affect the end result and will have a delicious, filling lunch box filler that is safe to take to school!

These delicious potato cakes have the consistency of a fish cake, without the fishy taste!
Awesome for picky eaters of all ages. Serve them with some mixed veg or a salad and some coconut yoghurt dressing on the side.
