Adapted from Oct 2016 Cook's Illustrated
4 T Spectrum palm shortening
5 t blackstrap molasses
1 1/4 c raw sugar
3/4 t salt
2 T coconut milk
1 T water
1/2 c raisins
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t cinnamon
1/2 c oil
2 medium eggs
1-1.5 t butter-vanilla emulsion
3 c old fashioned oats
3/4 c rice flour
1/4 c potato flour
Put the shortening, molasses, sugar, salt, coconut milk and water in a saucepan. Boil for a few minutes, until most of the sugar is dissolved. Add the raisins, stir, turn off heat.
Mix the rest of the ingredients together, then stir in the hot oil/sugar mixture.
Divide into 20 balls. Flatten onto parchment paper. Bake at 350 or 375 F for 8-10 minutes.
(CI version has 4 T browned butter, no coconut milk or water, and regular wheat flour. Also, 1 lg egg + 1 yolk.)
NOTE: Almost all of these ingredients can also be found at Walmart. Yes, butter-vanilla emulsion is tastier than just vanilla; no, it does not have any actual dairy ingredients in it. Yes, you can substitute ingredients, but it probably will turn out different.
