Step Three: Fold in the oats, almond flour, salt, and raisins until well combined.
Step Four: Use a 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop the dough onto the sheet pan. Use your fingers to press the cookies down and form them into shape you like before baking.

Tips and Tricks for the Best Cookies
Use parchment paper – to prevent the cookies from sticking, line your baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick silicone baking mat. It will make the cookies even easier to remove and clean up will be a breeze.
Form the cookies before baking – these cookies don’t spread a ton in the oven, so use your fingers to press them down and form them into the shape you like prior to baking.
Don’t over bake – speaking of baking, don’t over bake your cookies! the bottoms should be golden, the edges set, and the tops should still look fudgy or slightly underdone. The cookies will continue to firm up as the cool. Check the cookies after 6-7 minutes and keep a close watch on them.
Let the cookie sheet cool – depending on the size of your cookie sheet you will likely have to bake the cookies in multiple batches. For the best results let the sheet pan come to a complete cool before adding more cookie dough.
Freezing Cookie Dough: scoop the cookie dough into balls and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet. Transfer the sheet pan to the freezer and freeze the cookie dough balls for an hour or until solid. Once the cookie dough balls are frozen solid transfer them to a freezer safe storage bag and store for up to 3 months. You can bake the cookies from frozen, just add a few extra minutes to the cook time.
Freezing Baked Cookies: once the cookies have baked, let them come to a complete cool. Transfer the cookies to a freezer safe storage bag and freeze for up to 3 to 4 weeks.
