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.

  1. These look delicious Vicky! I love raisins in baking. I hope you will share these with the Gallery of Favorites this weekend :)

  2. Thank you April! I most definitely will share them with the Gallery of Favourites!

  3. those cookies look awesome.. i love coconut and almonds together.. they are used a lot to make some indian sweets too.. such a perfect combination!

  4. I've always liked the combination! These cookies aren't overly sweet so the raisins also compliment the flavour!

  5. Thanks for stopping by Vicki - and thank you for the compliments on the photo. My camera is old and the light has been bad lately (grey winter light, you know how it is) so I am especially grateful for your lovely compliment.

    Also, I am still playing around with the savory almond flour muffins. I lost my drive to experiment with it and other juice pulp recipes, which is not good, as I now have a freezer full of juicepulp, sinceI cannot bear to throw it away. LOL.

    These cannelloni look scrumptious.
