This recipe puts a superfood twist on classic oatmeal raisin cookies, with options for a Raw or Non-Raw method for baking. We use Agave Nectar as a natural low-glycemic sweetener and an ideal alternative to highly processed and refined sugars. As a replacement for butter we use Coconut Oil, which consists of more than 90 percent saturated fats, which support the immune system, thyroid gland, nervous system, skin, and provide readily available energy! Then we threw some Golden and Goji Berries in there for a super antioxidant boost and a sweet, tangy kick!
