Pumpkin Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Everyone needs a good balanced "treat" recipe. And this one is a spin on the classic oatmeal raisin cookie with some nourishing ingredients. Yes, there is the chocolate treats, and cakes and such, but sometimes you are trying to eat a little less indulgence after the holidays and focus on eating more whole foods- I get it! These cookies might as well be a granola bar in my opinion, but then once you form it into a cookie you celebrate like it's a treat. And maybe you do, but it can really also just be a great snack and goodie-to-go for yourself and the kids.
This cookie is pure goodness. Yet, somehow paired with tea time it does seem like a celebration.
I made these yummies with some leftover pumpkin puree. Then I added some few pinches of pumpkin spice blend and it was a magical addition to any oatmeal raisin goodness.
Pumpkin Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe
{gluten, dairy, soy, egg, nut, seed and refined sugar-free}
2 cups of rolled GF oats
3/4 cup of GF oat flour
1/2 cup of rice flour
1/3 cup of tapioca flour
1/2 ts. of baking soda
1/2 ts. of sea salt
1/2 ts. of pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup of pumpkin puree
1/4 cup of applesauce
1/3 cup of pure maple syrup
2/3 cup of coconut palm sugar
1/3 cup of avocado oil
1/4 cup of softened coconut oil
3/4 cup of organic raisins

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl first, then add in the wet and mix well with a spatula until it is a sticky ball. Then fold in the raisins last. Let batter sit for 10 minutes in the fridge and then you are ready to scoop out 1 TB sized pieces of dough and roll and spread out on the baking sheet. I was able to bake 15 on a parchment-covered baking 12x15 baking sheet. This recipe will make about 30 cookies. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 12-14 minutes. 

Much love and light, xoxo
