Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Makes 24–

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 Cup Almond Butter (I used Maple Almond Butter)
  • 1/4 Cup Unsweetened Apple Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Dry Sweetener (I used an additional 1/2 cup of applesauce instead)
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cups oat flour
  • 1/3 cup sorghum flour (gluten free) or whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 teaspoonn baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup rolled oats (not quick-cooking or instand)
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpat baking mats.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, use a strong fork to beat together the almond butter , applesauce, and sweetener. Once relatively smooth, mix in vanillae extract
  3. Add in the Oat Flour, Sorghum flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Mix well. Stir in oats and raisons, mix well. The dough will be stiff.
  4. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls and place on the prepared baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Flatten the cookies a bit, so that they resemble thick discs (they don’t spread much at all during baking). Bake for 8-10 minutes. The longer you bake them the crispier they will be.
  5. Remove the cookies from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
