Oats Coconut Almond Raisin Cookies, gluten free

Old fashioned oats - 1 cup + 1 cup
Frozen grated coconut - 1/2 cup (bring at room temperature)
Almond Meal - 1 cup
Raisins - 1/3 cup
Coconut Palm Sugar - 1/2 cup or Maple Syrup - 1/2 cup
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Melted Butter - 3 tbsp or Coconut Oil - 1/3 cup

Put 1 cup of oats in a food processor and grind to a fine powder.

Add almond meal, oats powder, coconut palm sugar, 1 cup whole old fashioned oats, baking soda, salt and mix well.

Add the raisins, grated coconut, butter and mix well to form a dough. The wetness from the coconut and the butter will help to bind the dough. If the dough is a little dry, add more butter or coconut oil.

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Make small balls of the dough, flatten them a little and place on the parchment paper.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.

Cool and store in an airtight container. These cookies have a soft, a little crumbly and chewy texture. Makes around 30 small cookies.
