AIP Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Nothing beats a warm cookie straight out of the oven. Especially AIP Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

Which are TO DIE FOR.

But before I tell you how to make these delectable little goodies, let’s chat.

Cookies are part of my family legacy. My great-grandmother passed down her secret recipe for sugar cookies, and let me tell you, those are the best cookies ever invented. I used to make them all the time growing up, at least around the holidays.

My favorite cookie recipe the rest of the year was the chocolate chip cookie recipe on the back of the Nestle Toll House chocolate chips bag. I spent years perfecting my cookie technique until I could bake the best cookies ever.

Although I did have many, many mishaps. Like cookies that melted all over the pan, cookie that were too fluffy, burnt cookies, flaming-forgotten-cookies-left-in-the-oven-way-too-long, and underdone, overdone. I don’t know what kept me going except the thought that I would do better next time.

And that’s still what keeps me going. When I create a new recipe, I goof a lot. I burn things; I don’t set timers; and I double recipes and forget to double some ingredients.

But I keep going, because I’ve learned from experience that Rome wasn’t built in a day, and the perfect chocolate chip cookie takes time to create.

Except that the first chocolate chip cookie was an accident.

Well, good accidents do happen too. But just mostly bad accidents when it comes to cooking.

Hopefully you enjoy the happy accidents and the less happy ones. Remember that every accident brings you closer and closer to following your dreams.

I should note at this point that I’ve been using a new flour called Tigernut Flour from Organic Gemini that seems to be the best AIP cooking flour for sweets. Tigernuts aren’t really nuts; they are a member of the tuber family. And they have a richness, a nuttiness, and a sweetness that I’ve never encountered in Paleo baking flours. I highly recommend you buy it, as it adds a lot more to my abilities as a baker, and my ability to survive AIP elimination.

You can find Tigernut flour in some grocery stores, but your best chance is to buy through Organic Gemini here (click the image below). They also sell in bulk now, so if you bake with tigernut frequently you may want to consider buying a larger bag.

Paleo/AIP Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup Tigernut flour
  • 3/4 cup arrowroot powder
  • 1 tbs gelatin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbs cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup coconut butter
  • 1/2 cup raisins


Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and place a piece of parchment paper
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl with a whisk to eliminate clumps from tigernut flour.
  3. Combine all wet ingredients in a large bowl using a hand mixer on low for less than a minute.
  4. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix with a fork. Dough will be moldable and you can continue mixing with your hands until totally combined. Add raisins and fold in.
  5. Option #1: Form cookie dough into a large ball, and using a rolling pin, roll out between to sheets of parchment. Cut out cookies with a cookie cutter or a glass cup.
  6. Option #2: Roll cookie dough into small balls the size of your palm. Flatten on top of pre-lined baking sheet or stone.
  7. Option #3: Use a melon ball scoop or small ice cream scoop and scoop out dough onto pan. Flatten with hand.
  8. After you have filled the pan with raw cookies, place in oven for 7-10 minutes.
  9. After the time is up, transfer parchment paper (with cookies on top) from the pan to a cooling rack  immediately.
  10. Let cool for 15 minutes to two hours before serving (Note: The cookies will CRUMBLE badly unless allowed to cool.)

Enjoy!
