Chewy, sticky, soft, and dreamy oatmeal cookies made without actual oats!



  • 1 cup tiger nut flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 heaping tablespoons pastured gelatin, divided
  • 1 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon AIP baking powder (see post)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/4 cup red palm oil or palm oil shortening (softened)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons boiling water
  • 1/4 cup raisins (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together the flour, coconut sugar, 1 heaping tablespoon gelatin, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl.

  3. Fold in the palm shortening and vanilla extract.

  4.  Put the remaining gelatin, 1 heaping tablespoon in a cup or mug. Add boiling water to the gelatin and whisk vigorously with a fork until it looks like egg whites. 

  5. Quickly add to cookie mix and fold in with a spatula until you have a dough. Fold in raisins, if using.

  6. Shape 12 even-sized balls. Place on the baking sheet and gently flatten. Bake for 12 minutes, until deep golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes. Dig in.

Recipe Notes:

  • Read the ingredient section of the post and tips and tricks for some extra goodies. 
  • Macros below are without raisins added. 
  • For the gelatin egg you need good pastured gelatin that’s in powder form. I really like Great Lakes Beef Gelatin or Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin.
