Grain Free Raisin Cookies GF SCD

These simple gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free cookies are quick to make and you wouldn't think they were suitable for a restrictive grain free diet since they taste so good.

Raisin Cookies GF SCD

100g ground almonds
25g dessicated coconut
50g raisins
60ml honey (or other liquid sweetener if vegan)
40ml extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
2 tsps pure vanilla extract (alcohol, water and vanilla only)
¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
pinch of salt

Set the oven to 160°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Measure out the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix well.

Measure out the wet ingredients into another bowl.

Whisk the wet ingredients together.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well.

Shape into 12 walnut sized pieces.

Flatten with a fork then shape lightly with your fingers.

Bake in the bottom of the oven for about 15 minutes until golden. Leave to cool for 5 minutes on the tray then transfer to a wire rack.
