Oik Cookies

Last night, my son had a serious cookie craving.  Too bad I had almost no cookie-making ingredients!  I decided that I would try a flourless, low sugar oatmeal cookie (mostly because I had no flour and hardly any sugar), and after discovering I was out of raisins, I substituted dried apple pieces.  The result was a crispy, yummy, oatmeal cookie full of autumn flavors.  My 4 year old devoured the cookies and I loved that they’re pretty healthy, for cookies.  And they gained their unique moniker because I can’t type on my smartphone.  I was typing the recipe up on Facebook, and oil became oik.  My sister decided there was no other name for them.  If you want to give them a try, here’s the recipe:

Oik Cookies


  • 3 cups oatmeal
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil, slightly melted
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup crushed dried apple
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg


  1. Mix all ingredients except dried apples. Add apples, fold in gently.
  2. Drop by rounded spoonful onto greased cookie sheet. Press down with the tines of a fork.
  3. Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes, or until edges begin to brown.
