Dairy-Free, Dessert, Gluten-Free, Snack, Soy-Free, Vegan

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

Ingredients

Dry:

  • 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)

Wet:

  • 2 tbs. maple syrup
  • 1 tbs. coconut oil, softened
  • 1 tbs. almond butter
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Recipe

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together oat flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together wet ingredients.
  4. Mix dry mixture into wet ingredients until a wet dough forms. Fold in rolled oats and raisins.

Baking:

  1. 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.
  2. Bake for 12 minutes, or until slightly crispy on top. Let cool for 10 minutes to allow the cookies to firm up before enjoying.

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.
