Tastes-Like-Raisinettes Cookies

These are, by far, my husband's favorite cookies. The nutrition profile is pretty healthy for a dessert. I'm still working on reducing the refined sugar. Hope to have a super healthified version coming soon. in the meantime...you have to make a batch of these. SO delish!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup spelt or whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1/4 t baking soda rounded teaspoon
  • 1 ⁄4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup dairy-free (vegan) chocolate chips
  • 3 T raw sugar I used coconut sugar
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/3 cup + 1 T pure maple syrup or coconut nectar
  • 1 t blackstrap molasses
  • 1/2 t pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 cup warm water plus a bit more if needed to bring dough together

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat.
  • In a bowl, combine the flour, oats, and cocoa, sifting in the baking powder and baking soda.
  • Add the raisins, chips, sugar, and salt, and stir well.
  • Add the maple syrup, molasses, vanilla, and water to the dry ingredients. Stir until just incorporated. Place spoonfuls of the batter (about 1 tablespoon each) on the prepared baking sheet and flatten a little (if desired). Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, let cool on the pan for just a minute (not much longer, to prevent drying), then transfer to a cooling rack. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before eating.
  • NOTE: Store in an airtight container, and warm in the microwave or toaster oven before eating if not freshly made.
