Nutty Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


These cookies are super quick, super easy, and super tasty! What could be better? They are also pretty healthy when it comes to cookies - they provide a good dose of protein from the almond butter, plus heart healthy fiber from the oats, and they contain no refined sugar. They also happen to be gluten-free if you use gluten free oats. So, snack away!

Nutty Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
1 Cup Almond Butter (you can substitute any nut butter of your choice)
2/3 Cup Honey
1 Egg, beaten
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt (omit if your nut butter contains salt)
1 1/2 Cups Old Fashioned Oats
1/2 Cup Raisins
1/2 Cup Walnuts, toasted and chopped

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

2) Thoroughly combine the almond butter, honey, egg, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt (if using). Stir in the oats, raisins, and nuts.

3) Drop rounded tablespoon fulls of dough onto the parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes, until lightly golden brown, rotating the pans halfway through baking.

Grab a glass of ice cold milk (almond milk for me) and enjoy!
