Coconut Flour Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Unfortunately my blog was neglected during the holidays. I had the best of intentions to post new recipes for Christmas, but during the holiday craziness it seemed hard enough to find the time to cook, let alone blog!

I have been experimenting with coconut flour in all my baking lately. Once I took a bite out of these cookies I knew that this was a recipe I had to share.The oatmeal cookies are completely flourless, gluten free, and an all over very healthy option.

Ingredients:

1/2 Cup Coconut Flour

3/4 Cup Steel Cut Oats (for gluten free) Otherwise you can use rolled oats

1/2 Cup Brown Sugar Splenda

1/3 Cup of Applesauce

4 Egg Whites

2 Teaspoons Cinnamon

1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1/4 Cup Raisins

Preheat the oven to 350. In a large bowl mix all ingredients, and fold in the raisins at the end. If your dough’s thickness is not to your liking, you can always sprinkle in more oats. Grease baking sheet, and scoop dough into small balls. Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes or until done ( this all depends on how big or thick you make your cookies) Let cool on a rack, then enjoy!

    Just made these and they are very good (and no butter)! I substituted the applesauce for a smashed banana and I used organic chocolate chips instead of raisins. I guess the chocolate chips kind of defeat the purpose of trying to eat healthy, but oh well.

  2. can I use the egg yolk too or will that change the outcome?

    I made these a couple of day’s ago, my husband said they were a litlle dry, outside of that he liked them. So, I decided to change it up a bit, first off I doubled the receipe and used 4 whole eggs, 1 1/4 cup Coconut Palm Brown sugar, added ground cloves,( I just throw in what looks good) and I boil the raisins in water for 15 minutes before adding them to the dough mixture. This came from a cookie receipe that I use to make all the time. The raisins are nice a plump and moist. They came out chewy and a thumbs up from hubby!

    I made these and they turned out great!!! I changed up the recipe a little since I eat paleo. Instead I used 4 whole eggs and no applesauce. Walnuts instead of oats and honey instead of brown sugar. I also added a half stick of butter. Best cookies ever!! If anyone eating paleo wanted to make these now you can šŸ˜€
