  • Prep Time: 15 min
  • Total Time: 55 min
  • Serves: 24 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp Bob’s Red Mill Chia 15 mL
  • 1/4 cup water 60 mL
  • 3 cups gluten-free rolled oats, divided 750 mL
  • 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour 250 mL
  • 1 tsp baking soda 5 mL
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum 5 mL
  • 1/4 tsp salt 1 mL
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature 125 mL
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar 375 mL
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla 10 mL
  • 1 cup golden raisins 250 mL
  • 1/3 cup gluten-free flaked sweetened coconut 75 mL

Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). In a small bowl, mix chia with water; let stand 10 minutes to form chia gel. Meanwhile, using a blender or food processor, pulse 2 cups (500 mL) oats into a fine meal. Transfer oats to a large mixing bowl; add flour, baking soda, xanthan gum and salt.

  • Step 2

    Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, blend chia gel, butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add vanilla. With the mixer on low, slowly add oat mixture until combined. Mix in raisins, coconut and remaining oats until blended evenly.

  • Step 3

    Drop 24 portions (2 tbsp/30 mL) cookie dough onto parchment paper–lined baking sheets, about 2 inches (5 cm) apart. Press lightly to flatten. Bake, rotating baking sheets halfway through, until golden around edges, 20 to 22 minutes. Transfer to wire rack and let cool completely. Store in airtight container.
