Yesterday, we were really craving oatmeal raisin cookies, but I typically avoid oats, even gluten free oats. So we made them with no oats at all, and you can too!
Sliced almonds give it that oatmeal texture; you can break them up a little bit to be closer in size to oatmeal, or leave them as they are. We “pre-plumped” the raisins by soaking them in a bit of boiling water while we mixed the batter. It was definitely worth it!
Mix with a fork into a thick doughy batter. Add:
about 1 cup sliced almonds
about 1 cup raisins
and mix again. Spoon onto baking tray. They don’t spread out much, so you can spoon them onto the tray the way you want them to end up. Bake 350 for 20-30 minutes.
