The Winner and Some Really Great Breakfast Cookies!

by Susan on May 23, 2013 Breakfast cookies

Breakfast Cookies @ Rawmazing.comWe have a winner of the grain grinder / flaker! Our random number generator picked Maya! Congradulations to you and for everyone else, watch for new, fun contests in the near future!

I have to admit, I love hosting contests. First, I get to give away something useful and fun. Second, I LOVE the comments that come in. I know there are thousands of you, all around the world, reading the blog. I also know that everyone is busy, and it takes time to leave comments on a regular basis. But when the contests run, I really get to hear from you and how much you enjoy the blog…which brings me great joy.

I have always said, blogging for a living can be a bit lonely some days. You spend hours and hours creating content, you can see the numbers and know that lots of people are visiting your site but since there isn’t any face to face, you never really get the interaction that is so enjoyable. So thanks to all of you who entered and thank you for all the wonderful comments!

Have you been looking for some interesting breakfast ideas? I always start my day with a big green drink but often want a little more. These raw breakfast cookies, made with sprouted raw flaked oats, are just the thing for those mornings (or any other time of day). I packed these with flavor! They are a burst of  sunshine with tons of orange, maple and cranberry flavor. My batch disappeared very quickly, so quickly I almost didn’t get a chance to photograph them! I have also included one of my favorite breakfast beverages. Spicy Almond Brazil Nut Milk. It is wonderful slightly warmed.

Do you flake the sprouted oats before adding them? Sorry, that is probably a very silly question but I would like to make sure I get them right. Thank you very much.

I would love to make the breakfast cookies but I do not have a dehydrater. Is there anything else I can do??
Thanks! Lynn

Those cookies sound yummy! I can’t wait to try them.

Congrats to Maya!

How much water is added to make nut milk?


Gail May 23, 2013 at 9:07 pm

So since I didn’t win the flaker do I just substitute rolled oats in this recipe? This sounds very yummy and I make some of your recipes already all the time so always looking for more to add.

Oh, sudden thought: can I use a rolling pin to flatten the soaked grouts? Can’t afford to buy a flaker.


Susan May 23, 2013 at 9:27 pm

No, a rolling pin will not work to make the flaked oats. You can substitute rolled oats, you might need more liquid. Cheers!


Marsha May 23, 2013 at 10:35 pm

This looks wonderful! Im making the milk right now. For the cookies, do I measure the oats before or after they have been soaked?
Thank you for sharing!

Do cashews need to be soaked?
2 1/2 cup sprouted raw oats, is that DRY oats or already soaked???


Susan May 23, 2013 at 11:22 pm

The cashews do not need to be soaked. If it doesn’t say cashews, soaked….then you can use them dry. The flaked oats are used dry. I put in a link for you to see what I am talking about.

Hi I’m a celiac what can use instead of oats as I still react to them? Thanks


Therawfoodsisters May 24, 2013 at 6:35 am

What a piece of cookie! We wouldn´t mind to enjoy some in cold Amsterdam at the moment :) Looks delicious like Always!

it’s so nice to hear that you love our comments. may I just say that I love your website and also your logo. it’s the first thing to come up and it is so expressive and joyful looking. and the name “rawmazing” is very whimsical and charming. great job!

ps when’s the next contest?


Marta @ What should I eat for breakfast today May 24, 2013 at 8:41 am

I like the idea of cookies for breakfast :)


Cyndy Whitaker May 24, 2013 at 10:32 am

I have celiac and can’t use oats. What would be a substitute?


Susan May 24, 2013 at 10:38 am

This whole recipe was formulated around the use of raw flaked oats. I honestly don’t have a replacement that would still be raw and have the same qualities that the oats do. What do you normally substitute?


Maha May 24, 2013 at 10:41 am

Lovely pictures! I love chia tea, so I will definitely try your tea.


Callahan McDonough May 24, 2013 at 11:07 am

hi there are so many of your recipes that look fabulous ! & I am a health foodie from the 1960’s. But, I would never take the time, have the time to make these and yet would be perfect for me for breakfast. Is there a place, line that sells a version of these? thanks much.


Cyndy Whitaker May 24, 2013 at 1:46 pm

I can’t have any grains. I can use nuts and seeds.


Susan May 24, 2013 at 2:09 pm

This recipe won’t work with nuts and seeds as a substitute. I would suggest taking a look at the recipe index to find recipes that fit that category. :-)


Lynx May 25, 2013 at 3:07 am

Mmm, the almond milk sounds great, never tried making it spicy! Any ideas for using the excess almond flour mix?


Jean Blum May 26, 2013 at 8:15 am

Hi Susan- At this point l have 0 energy and only eat a SAD diet because l cannot prepare food and cannot afford someone else’s preparation. But l do dream of getting back to good food again. l ALWAYS read and enjoy your messages and recipes. l consider you a path-setter! Thank you.

Perfect breakfast! Amazing! :)


Lisa R August 15, 2013 at 9:56 pm

How many did this recipe make? I am counting calories, and I wanted to figure out the calorie count of each cookie, but I haven’t made the recipe yet.


Debbie September 16, 2013 at 1:06 pm

I added 1/2 cut of chopped dates to this recipe. They seemed to bind together better!


Katja September 20, 2013 at 12:11 am

Hey, why didn’t you soak the almonds?


Susan September 20, 2013 at 12:43 pm

For the nut milk? Please feel free to do that if you wish. I always presoak and dehydrate almonds so they are ready to go.
