A cakie is born when a cookie and a cake do the horizontal tango.
Let me start off by saying that this recipe was supposed to be a cake, but the ingredients took me a slightly different direction. After mixing all of my healthy ingredients together I noticed the batter wasn't a liquid like most cake batter is supposed to be. The batter was more like play-doh, very pliable and fun! This is when I made the decision to not force the batter to become something it isn't (cake). This batter was made for something greater (cue inspiration music), to be a CAKIE, a cookie with the consistency of a cake! Did I mention this cakie is healthy too? Double Yum!
Now that you know the history of my recipe, let's get these cakies in the oven!
CINNAMON RAISIN CAKIES
makes about 14 cakies
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and cover two baking pans with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl combine wet ingredients. Then, add dry ingredients, except the raisins, and stir with a large spoon. Gently fold in your raisins or cookie mix-in of choice so they're all dispersed in the batter.
3. The batter should be similar to a play-doh consistency. Using an ice cream scooper or large spoon, scoop some batter, and form it into a ball. Put the batter ball on your baking pan and use your hand to gently flatten the ball until it's about a 1/2 inch thick. Do this with all of your batter until there is none left. You should see the outlining of your fingers on the cakies which is kinda cool :). See photo above.
4. Bake these cakies for about 15-18 minutes or until they start to brown.
5. Let cakies cool for about 5 minutes and proceed to dig in!
