Every now and then I have the hankering for  cinnamon raisin chocolate chip cookies and with my paleo diet it means working with coconut flour or a seed butter as the base.  I love sunflower seed butter so I decided to whip up a batch, got a little creative and created this recipe.


The raisins and cinnamon really add a new flavor to the chocolate chip cookies.  It almost reminds me of the everything cookie I used to buy from my natural market.

These look terrific & yummy! I'm planning on making this recipe in a few days. Been thinking I would try adding walnuts to your recipe as we are all walnut nuts in our family. Thank you so much for this intriguing recipe Kelly!

I was skeptical about these until they actually cooled down and sat for a while....they are AWESOME Kelly!!! Thank you so much! My husband requested oatmeal raisin cookies, and during my quest for a recipe I found these and was so intrigued! I had a pound of pepitas (those little green guys) getting bored in my pantry and thought I'd try roasting them to see what would happen... Processing them took absolutely forever (20+ minutes!), but I liked the consistency. I added a bit of cocoa and coconut oil because I was afraid of the flavor -- actually, every time I tested the "batter" I thought "This might not work out..." -- but now I wish I'd added at least twice the cinnamon. They turned out exactly like your pictures, the consistency is beautiful and the flavor is really great!! I don't mean to sound so surprised, but I'm just pleased that these weren't a disaster with the pepitas. My husband is used to things tasting "healthy" (read: "disappointing"), but even he thinks they're wonderful. SCORE! Thanks Kelly - You Rock! <3
