Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies



More healthy recipes since I've been trying to be good lately to lose some of those last stubborn lbs. 
This recipe I found on Pinterest, of course, and tweaked it a bit. I had a major sweet tooth last weekend and so this had to do. And it worked. These are actually really good for having no sugar in them! 




Ingredients:
1 cup old fashioned oats
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
2 tbsp coconut oil
1/4 cup agave
1/4 honey
1 egg
1/4 raisins

Directions:
1. Place raisins in a bowl and cover with water. Microwave for 45 seconds and let sit until ready to mix into dough. 
2. Mix together oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. 
3. In a separate bowl combine coconut oil, vanilla, egg, agave, and honey and mix until smooth. 
4. Combine the two mixtures and stir just until incorporated. 
5. Drain raisins and add to dough mixture. 
6. Chill dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. 
7. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. 
8. Line baking sheets with silicone mats. 
9. Place cookie dough into rounded scoops on cookie sheets. 
10. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
