A little late for Valentine’s Day, but not too late to make for your sweetheart…Giant Chocolate Raisin Cookies!
My son Kevin whipped these up for me last week, using a recipe from the library and GlutenFree Mama Flour. They are so yummy we can’t wait for Kevin to make them again. Thank you, Kevin!
2 cups GlutenFree Mama Coconut Blend Flour (or gluten-free flour blend of your choice)
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup coconut oil, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups Enjoy Life chocolate chips
1 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl mix the dry ingredients: flour, xanthan gum, cocoa, salt and baking soda. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, cream coconut oil and sugars together. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Stir half the dry ingredients into the oil mixture, then stir in the other half until well mixed. Fold in the chocolate chips and raisins.
Oil three 9-inch cake pans. Divide dough into three sections and spread into the cake pans (it will be thick and lumpy with all the raisins and chips). Bake all three pans for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool on racks before removing from pans.
You now have three Giant Chocolate Raisin Cookies to eat or to share! Happy belated Valentine’s Day!
