I have a question about the recipe "Silly Good Oatmeal Cookies with Golden Raisins (flourless and vegan)" from Molly Damon. Do you think these would work without blending the oats, just leaving the oats whole?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
If you want them to be similar to "normal" cookies you need the oats broken down to provide a flour component. The remaining ingredients will coat whole oats (like granola) rather than combining uniformly/being absorbed/creamed together (like cookies). I think you can make them and get something to eat out of it, but they will be quite different than the recipe intended.
Makes total sense. Thank you! I actually decided to make another oatmeal cookie recipe that included flour, as eliminating flour was not my objective.
