5 INGREDIENT NO BAKE OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES
INGREDIENTS 5 INGREDIENT NO BAKE OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES
1 cup natural, unsalted creamy almond butter
1/4 cup pure maple syrup (plus 2 tablespoons)
1 ½ cups gluten free rolled oats
1/2 cup raisins, packed
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Gallon sized BPA free storage bag
Prepare a cookie sheet with wax paper or parchment paper (we use a Silpat) and set aside, but don’t turn on the oven you won’t need it for these cookies. In a large glass microwave safe bowl, add the almond butter and 1/4 cup of maple syrup. (reserving the last two tablespoons)
In a large, microwave-safe bowl, add almond butter and maple syrup. Using a large wooden spoon, stir well to mix.
Place in microwave and heat for 20 seconds. Remove, stir and repeat. Continue with the 20 second bursts in the microwave until the mixture begins to dry out and become lighter and fluffy (about 4-6 bursts). Using a wire whisk, whip up the mixture between microwave bursts.
Carefully remove bowl from microwave and add oats, raisins, and cinnamon. Again using a wooden spoon, stir and fold all the ingredients together until thoroughly combined. If cookie dough does not stick together or is dry, add the extra reserved maple syrup.
Using an ice cream scoop, remove a scoopful of the cookie dough about the size of a golf ball and place on cookie sheet. Then using the back of a fork, shape and flatten the cookies to desired thickness.
Chill in the freezer for 15-25 mins, until firm.
Store in gallon sized BPA free freezer bags in the refrigerator.
