Paleo Almond Butter Cookies with Coconut and Raisins


  • 1 cup creamy, salted almond butter
  • 1/2 cup organic whole cane sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp organic vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup organic raisins
  • 1/8 cup finely shredded, unsweetened coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine almond butter, sugar, salt, baking soda, egg and vanilla extract. Mix well. Add raisins and shredded coconut.
  3. Form balls out of the cookie mixture about the size of a quarter. Arrange on a baking sheet with at least 3 inches between each cookie ball.
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.


Tracey's Notes ~ I did test a batch with 1/2 cup of organic brown sugar and the cookies turned out to be a bit thicker and chewy, while the whole cane sugar makes a larger, crisper cookie.

Egg-Free option ~ I've also tested it with Ener-G egg replacer (my husband is allergic to eggs) and they're great too.

With the raisin and coconut, it was almost like a breakfast cookie. Not too sweet and filling.
