Very simple but tasty cookies with raisins, coconut and lemon zest recipe

Cookies with raisins, coconut and lemon zest.

I’ve been putting lemon in/on/around everything I make. In smoothies, on salads, and around cookie batters. My parents’ lemon tree is loaded and ready to use so of course, I’ve been taking bags and bags for my own selfishness. I love lemons and the sweet and sour tang it adds to anything.

I made these cookies this weekend and they were gone in an hour. Granted, my sister and her boyfriend enjoyed these babies, one cookie after another, but still, they disappeared quite fast.

Lemon raisins Coconut Flour Cookies

What you need:

☛¹/₂ cup coconut flour
☛¹/₄ cup gluten-free flour (or whole wheat flour)
☛¹/₂ tsp baking powder
☛¹/₄ tsp salt
☛1 egg
☛1 egg white (or additional whole egg)
☛¹/₄ cup fresh lemon juice
☛1 tbsp lemon zest (yum!)
☛¹/₄ cup honey
☛2 heaping tbsp yogurt (or a ripe banana, mashed for dairy-free)

Preheat oven to 325°F

In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients, flours, baking powder, and salt. In the same bowl, place the eggs, lemon juice, zest, honey, and yogurt or banana. Mix ingredients together well. If the batter is too thick, add more yogurt, more lemon juice, or banana. Fold in the raisins.

Bake for 12-18 minutes or until cookies are slightly golden around the edges but still soft in the middle.
