INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup gluten free oat flour (grind oats in a blender/food processor)
  • 3/4 cup ground almonds
  • 2 heaped tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup/sweetener of choice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 heaped tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 3/4 C raisins (or as many as you’d like)

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan over a medium heat.
  3. Take the pan off the heat and whisk in the maple syrup, peanut butter, pinch salt, cinnamon and vanilla extract.
  4. Add this to a mixing bowl along with the flour, ground almonds and raisins – mix thoroughly. A wet doughy mixture should have formed (try not to eat it by the spoon..)
  5. Very roughly roll into cookie shapes and place on a lined baking sheet (don’t worry – the mixture is supposed to be quite wet and sticky, this is what makes them so light!)
  6. Bake for 10-12 mins until golden brown, then let them cool for about 10 minutes before moving (or they will break). They should be moist on the inside. Enjoy!
