Almost Oatmeal Raisin Paleo Cookies

8 10 2009

This is my version of the Son of Grok’s Caveman Cookies.

You will need:

1/2 cup pitted dates that you chop into chunks

3/4 cup almonds

1/4 cup macadamia nuts

1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

1 teaspoon coconut oil

1 Egg

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 tsp cinnamon


How to prepare:

Put nuts, dates, coconut, oil, and cinnamon in the food processor with the S blade on it.  Pulse until nuts and dates are broken down and it resembles loose crumbs. 


Pour into mixing bowl and add in egg and raisins.  Use your hands to mix together. 


Use an ice cream scoop to get uniformly sized cookies.  Form into patties like you would burger meat.  You should be able to make about 6-8 cookies. 


Put on ungreased baking sheet into an oven that you have heated to 350.  Space evenly on the cookie sheet.


  Bake for about 30 minutes.  You will know they are done when they look golden brown and delicious.

Cool on a wire rack and enjoy!

I tried these this afternoon as today is Day #1 of my Paleo challenge through my Crossfit gym. They were very good the only problem I had was all my raisins seemed to pop out and not stick in the cookie, resulting in burnt raisins! They also didn’t seem to need the full 30 minutes.
I will try these again with trying to get my dry ingredients broken down a tad more!

These are outstanding. Didn’t need the full 30 minutes as well. Going to play around with the time. Mine didn’t turn out as pretty as your pictures, but tasted damn nice.

Made these last night, Blended up the nuts in a blender just fine , and I also didn’t need the full thirty minutes. I just slightly overcooked them at 20 minutes. They were a little burned but the slightly burned taste blended well with the nutty flavor – kind of tasted like roasted nuts! In the morning I broke the cookies up into a bowl of almond milk with a banana and blueberries it looked almost like granola cereal again. I felt like I was cheating! Thank you so much for that, you may have saved my paleo cheat binge!
