Yields: 3 dozen cookies

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 24 minutes (total)

Total Time: 39 minutes


3 cups Bella Viva Orchards’ Almond Flour, packed

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon fine sea salt

4 ounces unsalted butter (1 stick), softened

½ cup brown sugar, packed

½ cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1 cup Bella Viva Orchards’ Certified Organic Thompson Seedless Raisins

1 cup dark chocolate chips

1 cup Bella Viva Orchards’ Walnut Pieces


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, combine the Almond Flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In a deep bowl, using an electric mixer, combine softened butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Beat until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, until well incorporated. Add half of the Almond Flour mixture and mix until well blended, then repeat with remaining half of Almond Flour mixture.

Add Raisins, Walnut Pieces and chocolate chips and mix until well combined.

Using a rounded tablespoon, scoop out heaping portions and drop 2 inches apart onto lined cookie sheets. You will have remaining dough, so bake cookies in batches.

Bake about 12 minutes until golden brown. Depending on your oven, you may need to bake longer. Remove from oven and allow to cool a few minutes, then slide cookies – still on parchment paper – onto wire cooling racks. Allow baking sheets to cool, then repeat with fresh parchment paper and remaining cookie dough.

No self-restraint needed when it comes to enjoying these healthier flavor-packed gluten-free cookies!
