I am doing some baking for a MOPS fundraiser tomorrow, and so I made over a recipe I found at Vitamin Cottage. Try it and tell me what you think!
Silly Boy Oatmeal Raisin Cookie
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bring a cup of water to boil.
Combine in a bowl:
1 C gluten free flour mix*
1 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
Combine in Mixer Bowl:
1/2 C softened butter (make this dairy free by using the Earth Balance stick butter substitute)
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 C evaporated cane juice
1/2 C almond milk, or milk substitute of choice
1 heaping Tablespoon ground flax meal mixed into 3 Tablespoons boiling water (let sit for 3-4 minutes before adding to mixing bowl)
2 tsp vanilla
Add dry ingredients to wet, and mix til smooth, then add:
1 C raisins
1 C chopped walnuts
2 C rolled oats (not quick oats)
Mix to combine, then drop by tablespoonfuls onto baking sheet, giving them plenty of room to spread out. I did 8 or nine cookies per sheet. Bake for about 25 minutes or til your liking. We like our cookies crunchy, so we did the full 25 minutes.
Makes a bakers three dozen: about 38 - 3" cookies
All I can say is...I am getting the stuff out and making another batch, or there won't be any for the bake sale!
* As usual, I use my modified Bette Hageman GF flour mix: 6 C brown rice flour, 2 C cornstarch, 1 C tapioca flour
