Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin Cookies

I had a hankering for Oatmeal Cookies the other day. Since Oats are crossed off my list for the time being this is what I came up with instead.

These cookies have great flavor and couldn’t be easier to make!

Cinnamon Raisin Cookies.

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Blanched Almond Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar (white sugar or an unrefined variety)
  • 2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 2 TBS Butter/Earth Balance or Coconut oil.
  • 1 1/2 Tsp. Cinnamon
  • 2 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 2 1/2 TBS Water or Non-dairy Milk
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 Cup (or more) Raisin’s

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor. (or combine by hand- cutting in the butter and then adding the water/vanilla extract last). stir in the raisins.
  3. Press the dough and flatten them into 12- 1/2 inch tall cookies . If the dough feels to dry to hold together add an additional 1/2-1 TBS water/milk. (The more liquid you add- the more they will spread)
  4. Bake 20 minutes for softer cookies- bake 25 for harder crunchier cookies. The cookies will spread some in the oven.

      Alexis,

      Have you ever heard of Lakanto? Its a natural substitute for sugar. Here is a link to check it out.

          When I use Lakanto I use half the amount called for.

      Here is a novel concept. You yourself can learn how to substitute honey for granulated sugar. That way when you read a recipe on a blog instead of whining to the person who so graciously took time out of their life to post it for free, you can just substitute your desired changes and experiment with it yourself. For the record I also only use honey. Heres the formula:

      Honey is 20% sweater than regular sugar is so decrease the amount you add by 20%.
      If she calls for 8 tablespoons (1/2 a cup) of granulated sugar than subtracting 20% of it will be 6.4 tablespoons of honey.

      Honey is also 20% water so there is about 3 tablespoons of liquid in a cup of honey.
      If you are using 6.4 tablespoons of honey that means that you are adding 1.28 tablespoons of water. Decrease this from the water called for in the recipe. (You can round slightly)

      Honey is also slightly more acidic than table sugar is.
      Since baking powder only works if the acid and the alkali in a recipe are balanced, add a pinch of baking soda to the dry team to even it out.

      Honey will also brown faster than regular sugar so decrease the oven from 350 to around 325.
