"oatmeal" raisin cookies paleo style

These are so yummy! And so good for you. In moderation of course . . . 

2 c. almond meal (coarse almond flour that I get from Trader Joe's)
0.5 c. flax seed meal
0.5 c. unsweetened, shredded coconut
0.5 c. raw sunflower seeds
0.5 c. raw pumpkin seeds
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs
0.5 c. pure maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract
0.5 c. coconut oil (melted)
1 c. raisins

*Alternate add-in for chocolate lovers: 2 Tbls. unsweetened cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine dry ingredients. Combine wet ingredients. Mix wet and dry ingredients. Drop tablespoon-sized amounts of cookie batter onto your slip-mat, stoneware or parchment paper. Bake the cookies for 15 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!

This recipe (minus the cocoa powder) is take from my new favorite cookbook: Make it Paleo
