Walt’s Oatmeal Cookies

Makes a dozen fairly large cookies

My husband and I are friends with a couple who recently celebrated moving into Phase 2 of the Veritas Basic Healing Diet.  They were on Phase 1 for many months as the wife has been healing and moving to Phase 2 was something to celebrate indeed!  They are not the type who are going to go wild though and have been carefully adding more foods into their meals, making sure she can tolerate the newness with ease.

The very first day she was handed her Phase 2 packet, my friend emailed me and said “Walt has been waiting for oatmeal cookies for months!  Please tell me there is a recipe we can try!”.  Now, Walt is the chief support officer and head chef in their family.  He personally wasn’t on the Phase 1 diet, but has been right next to his wife since day one, finding recipes and making sure she’s staying on track whether they were home or out to dinner.  Of course I couldn’t wait to find Walt an oatmeal cookie recipe!

The original version I made for them was with raisins, but my kids asked me to add chocolate chips to a batch and they were awesome as well- so it is written to use either one.

ingredients

  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil , room temp (I used refined coconut oil in these, which has minimal coconut flavor)
  • 1.5 T maple syrup
  • 6 T coconut sugar
  • 1 egg , room temp
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1.5 cups gluten free oats
  • 1/2 cup raisins or chocolate chips

instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine almond flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a small bowl. In a second, larger bowl, cream coconut oil, coconut sugar, and maple syrup with a hand mixer until light and fluffy.
  3. Mix in the egg, then the vanilla.
  4. Add the bowl of dry ingredients to the wet and stir, then stir in the oats. Lastly, fold in the raisins or chocolate chips.
  5. Drop rounded tablespoons onto cookie sheet. They’ll spread a little bit, so leave room between them.
  6. Bake 13-15 minutes (14 was perfect in my oven).
  7. Allow cookies to rest on cookie sheet for a couple of minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool.
  8. Store in airtight container.
