Low GI sugar-free skinny oatmeal raisin cookies
These delicious cookies are gluten-free and have no butter or sugar. Despite missing the usual ingredients of a cookie recipe, these are still moist and crunchy on the outside. Whip up a batch of these and you won't feel as though you are missing out on anything. I like to prepare a batch for my late-night cookie cravings to accompany a nice hot mug of chamomile tea.
Skinny Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
2 tablespoons of macadamia butter
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 tablespoons of raisins
1 cup of wholemeal spelt flour
1/4 cup of quick oats
splash of vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of natural sweetener (natvia is the one I use)
Beat together macadamia butter, olive oil, egg, sweetener and vanilla extract. Stir in the flour, raisins and oats. You may want to add a little splash of water if the mixture seems a little dry and is not quite sticking together. Once the dough is starting to take shape, knead very lightly into a ball. Using a tablespoon, scoop out a spoonful of the mixture and roll into balls. Flatten a little on a baking tray covered with baking paper. Bake for 20 minutes in a moderate oven, until they are golden browned.
Take out a let cool completely on a wire rack before storing in an airtight container.
Makes 10 cookies.
