Homemade paleo cookies that taste like oatmeal raisin cookies, but made without any oats! Easy gluten free cookies made with almond flour. These cookies make a perfect low sugar breakfast cookie or dessert.
Is there ever such a thing as too many cookies?
I think not!
Especially this time of year.
Who cares if Christmas is over?
I’m still baking all the cookies and pretending like it’s still the holidays.
I guess I do have New Years still to come; I’ll take that as a win for me and my cookie baking fetish!
The beginning of homemade cookies
Believe it or not, this was one of the very first paleo cookies I created years ago.
I was sixteen and had just started eating healthier.
At that time, I was suffering from a pile of chronic illnesses that kept in in the house and in bed most of the day, so I turned to cooking and baking to pass the time.
What was once a way to pass time and act as a bandaid to the pain, quickly became a newfound passion for cooking!
Years later, I am still making these cookies and they are still just as good as the very first time I made them. 🙂
The flavor of these mock oatmeal cookies is seriously on point, if I do say so.
I decided against adding the word oatmeal to the title of the recipe, because people always end up commenting saying oatmeal isn’t paleo…
That’s why I didn’t put any actual oats in this recipe!
But they sure taste like the oatmeal cookies we all know and love.
Plus, this recipe is super low in added sugars and is sweetened with maple syrup and raisins, so it makes a perfect breakfast cookie as well.
Cookies for breakfast? Okay!
