I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth but even I can’t resist these cookies. You’ll never guess that they’re grain and refined sugar-free as they taste absolutely delicious – better than most other cookies in my opinion. And they’re so easy to make – all in one mixing bowl and about 30mins from start to finish. I love the combination of cinnamon and raisin and it really comes through in this cookie. Start by preheating the oven to 180C and line a baking tray with parchment (greaseproof) paper. Then melt the butter and add it to the almond flour and honey in a mixing bowl. Add the cinnamon, vanilla essence, raisins and baking soda and mix until everything is combined and the raisins are evenly distributed. And that’s all there is to it – a one-bowl recipe so less washing up, always a bonus! Just try not to eat all the mixture before you bake it – it is delicious though!
Roll the mixture into 12 evenly sized balls and press each one down to flatten them onto the parchment lined baking tray (mine were about 1cm thick). Then all you do is pop them into the oven for about 8 mins – check them every so often as almond flour has a tendency to burn quite easily. Once they have turned golden brown I like to flip them over so that the other side gets a bit of colour too and they crisp up a bit (6-8 mins on the other side should do it)
The cookies are done when they’re golden brown and crispy round the edges. They’re a soft, squidgy, chewy cookie rather than a crisp one and they’re so moreish! Oh! And they will make your kitchen smell absolutely divine. You won’t be able to resist having one straight out of the oven, and that’s how I like them best, warm with a cup of coffee as an afternoon pick me up.I’ve also served them as dessert, with a scoop of ice-cream and no-one guessed that they were ‘healthy’ cookies. They’re sure to impress your guests (if you can bear to share them!!) If you like these you’ll love my Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies made with Almond Flour also! Take a look at the recipe and let me know which ones you prefer! if it’s the Cinnamon Raisin flavour combination that you like then my Cinnamon Raisin Bread is sure to tempt you!
