Chewy N'Oatmeal Raisin Cookies - (SCD)

This is really Lucy Rosset's Cinnamon Cookie recipe with minor tweaks. Four years ago my son was on a rotation diet and I made these with pecan meal instead of almond flour. The result reminded me of chewy oatmeal raisin cookies. I have found them to be even better with this ratio of pecan meal and almond flour.

The original recipe can be found in Lucy's Specific Carbohydrate Cookbook sold at Lucy's Kitchen Shop, Digestive Wellness, and Amazon. It is grain-free and junk-free. There is also a wonderful Garlic-Parmesan Bread recipe in this book that is one of our favorites.

Chewy N'Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (SCD)

4 TBSP. Butter, melted
1/3 Cup of Honey
1 1/3 cup Pecan Meal
2/3 cup Almond Flour
1 teas. Cinnamon
1/8 teas. Salt
1/4 teas. Baking Soda
1/2 cup Raisins

Preheat oven to 285 degrees. Butter a cookie sheet or place a piece of parchment paper on it (preferred). Mix melted butter and honey in a small bowl. Combine dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl (except raisins). Stir wet ingredients into dry. Stir in raisins. Roll into 1" balls, place on cookie sheet and flatten slightly with hand. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes until done.
