Moon Cookies

Sat Nam!
Here’s a little background…
The first time I had a cookie like these was from a dear yogini friend who had brought to Sadhana. I liked them so much I went online and searched for oatmeal vegan recipes and found a very basic oatmeal cookie recipe I knew I could twist to my liking…so I went to work. The outcome was this fabulous recipe which is very easy to put together and tons of fun to have in the process. Every Full Moon Kundalini Meditation on the beach event we go to I like to bring these cookies along …hence the name “Moon Cookies”. Thanks to the yummy ingredients they are a hit wherever I go because they please every palate.
I hope you enjoy baking them as much as I do, and fine-tune them to your palate’s enjoyment if you feel the need. ^_^

– 3/4 cup brown sugar (or can do 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 agave nectar, or real maple syrup)

– 1 cup unbleached flour (can use almond flour or cashew flour)
– 1/4 t baking powder
