It can be a real challenge to live a Paleo lifestyle and still enjoy delicious food. Well, we are going to make it a little bit easier for you here because we have a delicious Paleo oatmeal raisin cookies recipe for you. The recipe is for Paleo oatmeal raisin cookies with dates. These cookies are chewy and soft.
They can have nuts added in if you prefer. The cookies use a mixture of almond flour, coconut flour, flax meal, and honey to sweeten naturally. I love mixing the different flours together because then you can’t taste any one flour and it makes a really good texture.
These cookies are sweetened with dates and honey, so they are much healthier than regular oatmeal cookies. I also think you will be surprised by how close the texture is to “real” oatmeal cookies.
One of the best things about cookies is portion control so you know exactly how many cookies you’ve eaten. They are also great for kids because they can grab them and go. These are also healthy enough that you may even want to have one with your breakfast or for a snack.
So I have a question for everyone – when you are looking at new recipes like on blogs like ours. What factors do you consider when trying to decide if you will actually try a recipe? Is it the ingredients or method? Or is it the pictures? A combination of all of them? We would love your input so we know where to focus our efforts! Have a fabulous day!
