INGREDIENTS

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 cup gluten free oat flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients

  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flax + 6 tablespoons water, whisked together, set for 15 minutes)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Add-in Ingredients

  • ¾ cup raisins or craisins, packed
  • ½ cup gluten free rolled oats

Optional Topping

  • 2 tablespoons raisins or craisins

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or greased foil. 
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients: oats, oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together all the wet ingredients: coconut oil, coconut sugar, maple syrup, flax eggs and vanilla. Whisk until thoroughly combined and is a gooey consistency.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Gently mix until thoroughly combined. Fold in raisins (or craisins) and oats. The dough will be sticky.
  5. Take a 2tbsp scoop of cookie dough and drop onto the prepared baking sheet. Using a fork, flatten cookies slightly - they will not spread during baking. This is when you could press extra raisins or craisins into the dough.
  6. Bake for 8-12 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes, then with a flat spatula carefully lift cookies off the baking sheet and transfer to a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely.

    Enjoy!
