Noatmeal Raisin Cookies

This is a paleo friendly dessert recipe adapted from the book "Make it Paleo" by Bill Staley & Hayley Mason.  I altered the original recipe because I didn't have all the ingredients handy and I like to add my own twist to recipes to suite my tastes.  For this one, I left out the pumpkin seeds, added more coconut and sunflower seeds, and used a different type of paleo friendly oil.  They really do taste very similar to oatmeal raisin cookies without the gluten (or the guilt!).  Enjoy!

A sweet toasted flavor on the outside with a soft chewy center.  A wonderful treat!

2c almond meal
1/2c flaxseed meal
1c unsweetened shredded coconut
1c roasted salted sunflower seeds
1tbs cinnamon
1tsp baking soda
2 large eggs, preferably omega-3 enriched
1/2c pure maple syrup
1tsp vanilla extract
1/2c organic non-hydrogenated shortening (Look for Spectrum brand made w palm oil)
1c raisins

1. Preheat your oven to 325F.  In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients.  In another glass bowl, melt oil and them mix with eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
2. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry.  Stir well.  Last, stir in your raisins.
3. On a nonstick foil lined baking sheet, drop the cookies by tablespoon-size balls.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Let cool and serve.
