Delicious Gluten Free , Vegan Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

Something Iconic this week !! Simple but delicious

Raisin Oatmeal Cookies !!!! Okay I can hear some disapproval that you are not keen on raisins !!!

Well Im sorry but you are missing a treat

I’ve also read that folk feel duped when they get a raisin cookie , thinking its chocolate πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚…. well every cookie doesn’t have to contain chocolate SURELY !!!

Well not in The Cauldron Anyway

This recipe is so easy , one that you could easily get the kids involved in !!

They have the soft middle with chewy outer that fit the bill of a great oatmeal cookie , plus the bursts of soft raisin to boot

The everyday cookie that just keeps giving

My last recipe for 3 to 4 weeks but I will explain that after the recipe

So with that lets bake ( Oh and another video for you to show how easy it is )

Raisin Oatmeal Cookies GF, DF V

Delicious soft and chewy Raisin and Oatmeal cookies


You can use a hand mixer , stand mixer or wooden sppon to make which ever you require


Ingredients

  • 125 g Unsalted Plantbased Butter ( I use Flora plant based )
  • 100 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 75 g White Granulated Sugar
  • 3 tbsp Chickpea/ Besan Flour
  • 3 tbsp Water
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
  • 150 g Gluten Free Plain Flour Blend ( I recommend Doves Farm Freee UK or Pillsbury Us )
  • 1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum ( omit if your flour blend contains it )
  • 150 g Gluten Free Rolled Oats
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder ( make sure it is GF )
  • 1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 200 g Raisins

Directions

  1. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper
  2. Add in the Gluten Free plain flour blend , oats, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, and xanthan gum , cinnamon and nutmeg ( If using )to bowl and whisk together
  3. Add your plant based butter and sugars to a bowl and beat till creamy
  4. Mix 3 tbsp of chickpea/ besan flour to 3 tbsp water and mix until smooth
  5. Add this to the creamed mixture with the vanilla extract and beat until combined
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed and beat until a dough is formed
  7. Add in your Raisins and beat mix in until distributed well. I found hand best !!! ( The doughs will be a little tacky )
  8. Weigh your cookies out into nine cookie dough balls – about 90g each!
  9. Roll your cookie dough into balls (don’t roll it too tightly )and put your cookie dough in the freezer for at least 30 minutes, or in the fridge for an hour
  10. Whilst the cookie dough is chilling, preheat your oven to 200C / 395 F ( I do not recommend convection for cookies )
  11. Take your cookies out of the freezer/fridge and put onto a lined baking tray. I put four to five cookies per tray!
  12. Bake the cookies in the oven for 12 minutes
  13. Once baked, leave them to cool on the tray for at least 30 minutes,
  14. Best eaten on the day but will keep in an air tight container for 3 days ( Just give them a little freshen up in the microwave for 10 seconds or in the oven for a couple of minutes
  15. Enjoy

Easy Raspberry and Almond Bakewell Cake

Easy Raspberry and Almond Bakewell Cake
Gluten Free and Vegan

Well we have a Platinum Jubilee coming up from the 2nd of July of our Beloved Queen

So I thought I best get an Iconic Bake in before we all start to bake up a storm for out street parties and afternoon teas in celebration

To mark the event … I decided on nothing to whacky but something traditional with a twist

So I’ve chosen a Bakewell Tart and taken out the equation of pastry πŸ™Š

I know for some that will just make your heart sing πŸ˜‚

But we do want to spend time celebrating and not fussing over elaborate decorated cakes ( But you can if you want ) πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

So we have all the flavour of almonds and lovely juice raspberries just waiting to be savoured !!! And even though this looks a rustic bake I want to tell you I would be more than happy to be served this at an afternoon tea

And Im sure Liz would be happy with this fayre too ……

We all know its her Majesty that decrees that its jam before cream on a scone , so if she delights in scones she will delight in a pastry-less Bakewell Cake 😍

So without further ado…. lets bake because you wont believe how simple this is

Just The ticket !!!
