Almond Flour Raisin Cookies #grainfree #glutenfree #vegan #paleoI am a big cookie monster. I just love ti snack on them. but not the refined sugars and flours that are usually associated with them. I am not 100% grain-free by any means. However, I do try to be conscious of the amount of grains I consume, and substitute with healthier options! The two definite winners, in my opinion, for healthier flour options are coconut flour and almond flour or any nut flour really. Since discovering these flours, and their health benefits, I have been using them all the time.

A few weeks ago, I began making my own almond flour, and quickly realized how easy it is make and that is much cheaper to whip up your own as well. I compared the prices of organic almonds and organic almond flour at my local health food store:  2.2 lbs of organic almonds is $18.59 and 2.2 lbs of organic almond flour is $26.00. That is a savings of $7.41. Not too shabby. And, 2 cups of almonds is approximately 2 cups of almond flour! Now that I had almond flour, I needed to bake some cookies.

I found an Almond Flour Frosted Sugar Cookie recipe over at the Dextoxinista, and fell in love. That frosting is very nice spread over her cookies. I adapted her original recipe to make my own

    These are AMAZING! I only had 1 cup of almond flour, so I cut everything in half…except the coconut flour…but then I ended up adding some more coconut oil and honey, to make the dough just right. ALSO: I added some fresh apple chunks, and it was wonderful!!! I actually wrote a post about it on my blog, and linked back to your recipe :)

    THANK YOU for this recipe, you’ll read in my post why I’m so grateful for it!

    Oh my…this is definitely one to try. I love the idea of using almond as flour instead of just as something that adds texture.

    These cookies sound awesome- as usual! I have got to try coconut flour, I keep reading about it and it sounds like a great alternative. Thanks for linking up at Sweet Saturday, and please forgive my tardiness in thanking you :)

    Made these tonight. They are so delicious! Thank you for making egg free cookie recipes!

    I made these about twice as thick as yours appear (and thus got about half the amount of cookies). I’m a cinnamon fan, too and added a hefty sprinkle. I also added a pinch of nutmeg and clove.

    Thanks again for the great recipes! Can’t wait to try more!
