Saporous No-Bake Papaya Pineapple Poppy Oatmeal Cookies
I had a sweet tooth tonight and wanted something without having to put in the oven. I scoward into my cupboards and found I could do a no-bake cookie pronto. And thusly I made the following...
On a sidenote:
I know this recipe has been around in different variations.
However, I will bet a spoonful of taste buds you haven't had one like this?
This kind of new shift in this creation came about when I wanted to try a no-bake recipe that was quick, easy, and full of bountiful flavor. But I didn't want the traditional kind. I love flavors! Especially ones which make your mouth pop with excitement and I believe I have hit the Bulls-eye!
Instead of cinnamon and walnuts as the regular old stand by I upped (substituted) the ingredient with Cardamom and Poppy seeds. I also replaced the classic ingredients of raisins and walnuts for papaya, pineapple, raisins and almonds.
I used larger chunks of fruit as to get the full flavor from them. I wanted to be sure the unique flavors would blend in with the heating process so when the cookie would set-up it would saturate into the oats.
Todd, my fiance', took a real quick taste before the oats were added and expressed a WOW... what was that, what did you put it there, that made my taste buds go Pop! With his statement I knew I had a winning recipe!
Make these cookies quickly before you start any dinner. Let them set in the refrigerator and after dinner you'll have a very scrumptious delectable cookie ready to devourer.
