It’s so important to get away from it all every once in awhile.
Away from the daily demands of work and home.
Away from routine.
Away from the familiar.
We spent this past weekend hanging out in San Diego, celebrating B’s birthday and enjoying a nice dose of relaxation.
The Grand Del Mar is one of my favorite get-away spots. From the moment you step foot on the lush resort property time seems to slow down to a relaxed saunter, and your cares float away. But I can only take it easy for about a day before I start to miss the RHR kitchen… 🙂
Yes, taking a break from the ordinary can be a very, very good idea.
These cookies are a break from the ordinary grain-free, sugar-free fare. I said on Facebook that these may be the best cookies I’ve ever baked, and I meant it. The flavor in these little morsels are uhhnnnbelievable. It’s so good I had to call them Sin Cookies, even though the ingredients are all healthy.
Freeze a batch of these Cinnamon Raisin Sin Cookies and serve cold for the perfect summer-afternoon snack.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease two baking sheets with coconut oil.
- Place the almond flour, coconut flour, arrowroot starch, flax meal, cinnamon, allspice, sea salt and baking soda in a food processor. Pulse until well combined. Add the oil and honey and pulse until the dough forms a ball. Remove the blade, stir in the raisins.
- Place the dough by 1 Tablespoon scoops on prepared baking sheets. Lightly press the dough down, leaving a couple inches between each cookie.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden. Cool on the baking sheets for 15 minutes before serving. Freeze all the leftovers and serve them cold.
