Raisin Sesame Cookies Recipe
Diabetic Friendly Recipe
Pair up plump juicy raisins with sesame seeds and add oats for healthful fruity Raisin Sesame Cookies.
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1 cup brown rice flour
1-1/4 cup sliced rolled oats
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/8 cup unsweetened apple juice
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
Bring 3/4-cup of water to boil and add the raisins. When the water returns to a boil turn off the heat. Let the raisins plump for at least ten minutes. Drain the raisins well, then chop them coarsely.
Toast the sesame seeds by stirring them with a wooden spoon in a heavy saute pan over medium heat. Saute until the seeds begin to crackle, pop and smell toasted; about ten minutes.
Combine rice flour, oats, salt and toasted sesame seeds. Stir apple juice, oil and vanilla into the flour mixture. Form the dough into eight large balls. Place each ball on greased cookie sheets or parchment paper. Moisten your fingers and flatten each ball until it is 1/2-inch thick. Bake 25 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool on pans before removing. Recipe makes 8 servings.
