Looking for those old school oatmeal raisin cookies that are actually healthy? Then these are the ones for you! I love these cookies as an easy grab and go breakfast, snack or dessert. The addition of applesauce helps cut back on added oil and sugar while keeping the cookies moist and flavourful. Feel free to leave out the carrots or swap the walnuts for your nut of choice!
Makes 24 Cookies
• 4 tbsp coconut oil (melted and cooled)
• 2 eggs
• 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
• 1 tsp vanilla
• 1 shredded carrot (optional)
• 1 tsp baking soda
• 1 tsp cinnamon
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 3/4 cup coconut sugar
• 1 cup almond flour
• 3 tbsp coconut flour
• 2 cups rolled oats (gluten free if celiac)
• 1/2 cup raisins
• 1/2 cup walnuts
1. Preheat oven to 350 F, and line two cookie sheets with parchment. Grease.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together cooled coconut oil, eggs, and apple sauce until well combined.
3. To the same bowl add shredded carrot, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Whisk together well and then add both flours, oats, raisins and walnuts.
4. Scoop 1 1/2 tbsp of dough per cookie (I use a cookie scoop) to prepare 24 cookie balls and lightly press down with your fingers. If you find the dough is too wet, place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes (or overnight) to firm up.
5. Bake 15-18 minutes or until edges are golden.
6.Store in an airtight container for 5-7 days or freeze. Enjoy!
