Tonight for dessert we enjoyed Almond Raisin Pecan Cookies! The almonds create a buttery like texture. They include many treasured ingredients for a new favorite cookie! Better yet they are gluten-free, vegan, oil-free and refined-sugar free with only 105 calories per cookie. Who doesn't love a homemade warm cookie right out of the oven? Almonds, raisins, pecans and cinnamon are swirled together to create a cookie that begs to be enjoyed.
The cinnamon spice creates a warm feeling that fall is in the air. The dates bring memories of our summer harvest and sweeten the cookies. The mashed bananas are just the right oil replacement. Plump raisins and golden pecans are folded in for a delicious one of a kind cookie.
This recipe was modified for an oil-free - syrup-free batch from Curius CaveManda's recipe! With out her genius base, these cookies would not exist. Thank you CaveManda!
Update 2015 - We had the nicest act of kindness from the manager where we live. Gerald suggested cookies! We gave him a couple as we were leaving to say thank you and let him know they were free of oil, refined sugar and dairy. When we returned he said he could hardly believe it. "The most delicious treat yet no oil or sugar? How could this be?" This recipe is an older one but still stands tall!
