DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Stir in both sugars and nutmeg.
  • Cut in the butter/shortening and/or coconut oil.
  • Combine the coconut milk and vanilla and stir in the bowl with the flour *just* until moistened. DO NOT overmix the batter! Stir in the raisins.
  • Roll into equal size balls and [slightly] flatten.
  • Arrange on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake about 20 minutes or until golden brown. We liked our powda bons with a drizzle of agave.
