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
