Golden Raisin Oatmeal Spice Cookies

These dairy-free oatmeal cookies aren’t your grandmother’s recipe.  The hint of orange combined with the clove and allspice are a delightful kick to your taste buds.  The chewy texture of the oats combined with the sweet raisins are satisfyingly wholesome.  They are great with a cup of tea on a cold day but also a sweet addition to a summer picnic.

Prep Time:  15 minutes                        Cook Time 12-15 minutes                   Makes:  2 Dozen

1/2 cup melted coconut oil

1 cup packed light brown sugar

1/3 cup egg whites

1 tsp vanilla extract

3 cups rolled oats

2 tbsp of water

2 tbsp grated orange peel (approximately 1 medium orange zested)

2/3 cup flour

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp ground cloves

1/2 tsp ground allspice

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2/3 cup golden raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a mixing bowl, cream together the coconut oil and sugar.  Beat in the egg whites, water, orange zest and vanilla.  In a separate bowl combine the flour, oats, spices, salt and baking soda.  Sir until combined.  Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and stir in the raisins.  Stir until the mixture is combined.  Drop a rounded tablespoon of dough on an ungreased cookie sheet two inches apart.  Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are browned.  Remove and cool on a wire rack.  Enjoy!
