Cinnamon Raisin Sin Cookies

Best Cinnamon Raisin Cookie

I had to put ‘sin’ in the name of this cookie, because that’s exactly what your taste buds will think you’re doing.

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.

    I absolutely love this idea BUT I do not like coconut and I see that many of your recipes have that in it can coconut be substituted by anything else ?

      Hi Rose, I sure do use quite a few coconut products! You may certainly use ingredient substitutions, however I would recommend trying the coconut products out at least once since most do not have a very noticeable coconut flavor. For coconut flour, use 4x’s the amount in almond flour. For coconut crystals, use the equivalent or slightly less raw honey. For coconut oil, use the equivalent in palm shortening if baking, or olive oil, if cooking savory. For shredded coconut, simply leave that out or replace with some sliced almonds. For coconut milk, use almond milk or another natural milk that’s in line with your diet.
      I think that covers it! Let me know if there are any other ingredients that you’re wanting to swap out.
