These cookies are simply all kinds of yummy! They are gluten-free, dairy free, soy free, and Paleo. These make a great breakfast or snack option because they are high in protein and healthy fat. You can certainly omit or add in your own ingredients (raisins are high in sugar).

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup organic cashew butter
  • 1/4 cup of raw, local honey
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil (I used organic, unrefined)
  • 1 egg
  • About a half of a handful of organic Thompson raisins
  • About a half of a handful of organic sunflower seeds
  • About a quarter of a handful of organic, raw cacao nibs
  • 2 tbsp. of organic, raw coconut flour
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla extract
  • a pinch of salt

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Put the first four ingredients into a bowl
  • Combine first four ingredients with a stand mixer or hand beater. A quick blend is good
  • Add remaining ingredients and blend quickly
  • Refrigerate dough for ten minutes
  • Drop coffee scoop sized dough scoops onto ungreased cookie sheet
  • Bake for 15 minutes
  • Remove and allow to cool on a cookie rack
