Start by blending ½ cup raisins, coconut oil and applesauce in a food processor. If the raisins are old and hard, chop them up a bit by hand first to help get the process going.
Add in the coconut, oats, flax seed and salt, pulsing until the mixture forms a bowl. If it is still too wet, add some more coconut or oats. If it is too dry, add additional applesauce or coconut oil. Quantities will really vary depending on where you live and what the climate is like.
Once the "cookie dough" has reached a consistency you like, fold in the remaining ¼ cup of raisins,
Form the mixture into cookies and refrigerate until firm.
If not eaten immediately, store the cookies covered in the fridge, otherwise they will get too soft at room temperature.
