Some days I just really want to cozy up with a glass of almond milk and an oatmeal raisin cookie. But yours truly has a gluten and oat allergy. Womp womp. So when it was time to make my bf some bday treats I thought I'd try out something that could resemble an oatmeal raisin cookie. And boy do these guys deliver.
Not surprisingly, they are full of health benefits. Goji berries are a superfood and are very high in antioxidants and vitamin c. They are also grain free and gluten free so they are perfect for those paleo or celiac folks.
1 1/4 cups of almond meal
1/2 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut
1/3 cup of coconut sugar
1/4 cup of goji berries
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/4 tsp of salt
1 chia egg
3 tbs of melted coconut oil
1 tbs of cinnamon
2 tbs of Sweet Spreads chocolate brownie coconutter
Make your chia egg and set aside. Mix all of your dry ingredients together until well mixed. Melt your coconut oil on the stove top and slowly add to your dry mixture. Mix well. Then add in your chia egg and mix until everything is evenly distributed. Use a tablespoon to scoop your mixture into balls. Place on a plate and let stand in the fridge for 30 minutes or longer. Remove your cookies from the freezer and place onto a baking tray. Flatten then out and then pop them in the oven for 7-10 minutes on 375. Let them cool and you can even keep them in the fridge over night. Heat your coconutter and drizzle on top when you're ready to eat.
I'll never miss an oatmeal raisin cookie ever again.
