Ingredients
  • ¼ cup ground flaxseed + ½ cup warm water
  • 2 cups gluten-free old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1½ cups unsweetened coconut, shredded
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 cup almond butter
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 cup raisins
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 4 cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the ground flaxseed and water; allow to sit for 5 minutes to form a gel.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the oats, oat flour, shredded coconut, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  4. To the flaxseed, add the coconut oil, almond butter, maple syrup, coconut sugar, and vanilla; whisk until smooth.
  5. Pour the wet mixture over the dry mixture and mix until just combined. Fold in the slivered almonds and raisins. Using a ⅓ cup scoop, heap batter onto the parchment paper and gently press down to flatten the cookie. Repeat with remaining batter.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Allow to cool completely on the baking sheets.
