Flourless Raisin Cookies
Article Published on Aug 10, 2016
Sometimes you just want something sweet. Healthy, but sweet. These delicious flourless oatmeal raisin cookies will hit the spot.
I don’t feel guilty indulging in these every now and again, and my chocolate-chip-cookie-loving husband loves them as well! And every one of my children thought they were just as good as a regular cookie. You can serve these as a breakfast cookie or even a dessert cookie. I’d love them as either.
The oats make these cookies especially hardy and provide an excellent source of manganese and fiber. The coconut oil used makes these cookies delectable and provide healthy fats. It’s okay to indulge on occasion and now you can do it without the guilt!
Flourless Raisin Cookies
- 1 ¾ cup ground old fashioned oats
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- Pinch sea salt
- ¾ to 1 cup raisins
- 1/3 coconut oil
- ½ cup agave nectar
- 1 egg or flax egg*
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Preheat oven to 350.
- In a medium bowl combine the ground oats, 1 cup old fashioned oats, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
- In a small pot, melt the coconut oil and agave nectar together on low heat. Let cool for a few minutes. Whisk in vanilla and egg (or flax egg). Pour the liquid into the bowl of dry ingredients and stir together. Stir in raisins.
- Scoop onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper using a cookie scoop. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown. (They become very crumbly if you under bake the cookies, so bake until golden brown.) Let cool for a few minutes before transferring onto a cooling rack.
Yields: 18 to 24 cookies
*Combine 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal and 2 ½ tablespoons water. Let sit for five minutes. Use in place of 1 egg.
To make ground oats. Just blend the 1 ¾ c oats in a blender until ground.
