Noname cookies - Raja Oaties

nice looking dish huh?
disclaimer: cookies may appear bigger due to tiny tiny plates. this cookie is only about 2 inches wide.

So I need your help naming these cookies... because I have no clue what to call them! That makes them hard to offer to someone...

Hey you want a... ummm... weird cookie? You see it has tahini in it... and cashew butter... oh and it's sweetened with agave.

*starring at me like I have 2 heads*

No really, they are super tasty! They have oats in them too! You've heard of oats right?? Come on just try one! Oh and they are vegan too?? Ok still not selling you huh?

I don't think I'd have half as much of an issue if they had a cool name... so I'm taking suggestions! And they are just so darn tasty! I want everyone to try them! And the people who did try them, all like them! Yeah John wouldn't try one... that bum ;) Whatever he's missing out!

I wanted to make cashew butter cookies but realized I didn't have much left in the jar, so I started looking around to see what other butters/pastes I had. The flavor combo came out delicious!


Raja Oaties
by steph chows
makes 12 cookies

Beat together
3 Tbs tahini
1.5 Tbs cashew butter
1/4 cup agave nectar

In another bowl stir together
1.5 cups old fashion oats
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon

Add dry to wet, then stir in
1/4 to 1/2 cup rum soaked raisins (mmmm rum) or you know... you don't have to soak them in rum :D

I was already baking 2 types of cookies so all my cookie trays were being used... so I just made these in cupcake tins... come on perfect circles!

Scoop into 12 greased muffin tins. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.


So what should I call these!?

UPDATE:
thanks everyone for the name suggestions!! the noname cookies are now known as Raja Oaties!

OMG they looks and sound delicious! And they are HUGE! Hmmm I will think of a name today...

With all the healthy ingredients, it looks like these cookies would make great energy bars. They look delicious!

Steph said...

Wow! You just came up with a cookie on the spot? That's so cool!

Ang said...

I'm terrible at coming up with names but I am interested in making some weird rum raisin vegan cookies soon!

stephchows said...

jen king- lol totally fun!

Jessica- I added a disclaimer since you and my mom both thought they are gigantic... they are just on tiny plates lol, the cookies are only 2 inches wide.

Jessie- totally true!

steph- LOL it's all about experimenting... and being willing to fail hardcore LOL

ang- hope you like them!

Natalie said...

hmmm..... Vegan Nutty Oat Cookie? No idea!!!!! All I know is I want you to pack one in your suitcase for me to try ;)

Pam said...

Nicely done - I've never added cashew butter to a cookie, great idea.

These look very similar to some we used to eat when we were on a "clean eating cleanse" - proof that vegan can be yummy!!!

"agavahini nectarini"s!

all new species need a good scientific name (:

or..."john won't eat it so it MUST be good"s

stephchows said...

Natalie- if there are any left I'll bring them hehe I'd say I would make more but I used up the last of both butters to make these LOL

Pam- it adds such a nice flavor!

Mardi- clean eating cleanse... sounds scary... although if these were on the menu I'm in!

Val- HAHAHAHAHAH ok the second one is the best for sure :D

cindy* said...

nutty oat cookies...lame. i don't know what to call them either, but they look delightful!

These remind me of a breakfast cookie! So healthy and hearty. How about an Oat Cashew Breakfast cookie?

Jeanne said...

I think you should name that has nothing to do with the ingredients, but still explains what the cookies are about. Like cowboy cookies. Those aren't called, Oatmeal Coconut Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Tahini is middle eastern, right? (someone help me out here.) So call them Raja cookies.
Raja like King.
Or maybe even Cashew Rajas if you feel the need to add one ingredient to the title.

stephchows said...

cindy- nah not lame at all!

Reeni- ooo they totally are a breakfast cookie!!

Jeanne- ok loving the raja... hmmmm just got another email suggestion... raja oaties! done and done!

Cucinista said...
