Ingredients

Dry

  • 1 cup oat flour (process whole oats in a food processor until a flour is formed)*
  • 1 cup almond meal or almond flour*
  • 1 cup whole oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Wet

  • 1/4 cup +2 tablespoons coconut oil**
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

Mix-ins

  • 3/4 cup raisins (I use half black and half golden)
  • 1/3 cup 85% dark chocolate chopped, or dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350º.
  • Add the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl, and mix well.
  • In a smaller bowl, mix together all the wet ingredients.
  • Mix the wet ingredients into the dry, and then add the raisins and chocolate.
  • Use a 3 tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop the cookies on to a cookie sheet. Use fingers to press each mound into a flattened cookie shape, since these will not spread while baking.
  • Bake for 9-11 minutes. I pull mine out at 9 minutes to make them chewier.
  • Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before removing from cookie sheet. They will be very crumbly while hot, but will firm up after they've cooled.
  • For best results, keep frozen. They are extra chewy when eaten out of the freezer, and I prefer the chocolate frozen because it's crunchy!

Notes

*I do not recommend using a store bought oat flour. I've found finely ground oat flour makes cookies grainy and crumbly. 
**I've used butter in place of the coconut oil, and it turns out okay. The flavor is great, but it results in a drier cookie. 
Variations:
  • Use all raisins if preferred, and omit the dark chocolate.
  • Omit the raisins and use dark chocolate.
  • Use a different dried fruit, like cranberries or even freeze dried strawberries in place or the raisins.
  • Forget the fruit, and add in extra dark chocolate!
