Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside…
This Father’s Day, I’m making my dad’s favorite: oatmeal raisin cookies. When I was younger, I stayed as far away from oatmeal raisin cookies as I could. For me, it was chocolate chip or nothing! Now, I love oatmeal raisin cookies, and they’ve become a special staple for my family. They bring back memories of home, family, and laughter. I hope these do the same for you!
Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 12 minutes Serves: 6-8 cookies
- 1 cup oat flour
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. baking powder
- 1/8 tsp. baking soda
- 1/8 tsp. salt
- 2 tbs. rolled oats
- 2 tbs. raisins, packed (more to taste)
- 2 tbs. maple syrup
- 1 tbs. coconut oil, softened
- 1 tbs. almond butter
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
- In a small bowl, mix together oat flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
- In a medium bowl, mix together wet ingredients.
- Mix dry mixture into wet ingredients until a wet dough forms. Fold in rolled oats and raisins.
- Roll dough into small balls, about 1 inch across. Using a fork, press balls into circular discs on the baking sheet, about 1 1/2 to 2 inches across. The cookies will expand slightly in the oven.
- Bake for 12 minutes, or until slightly crispy on top. Let cool for 10 minutes to allow the cookies to firm up before enjoying.
