Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Completely vegan and refined sugar free healthy oatmeal raisin cookies. Healthy but still oh so tasty, these are the perfect way to satisfy a sweet craving.

I only discovered oatmeal raisin cookies a few months ago. When chocolate chip is the alternative, I think I’ve always thought that oatmeal raisin would be a rubbish alternative – how wrong was I, they are so yummy!

I can’t get enough of these tasty oaty cookies since, and since we have been really trying to reduce the amount of sugar we have – these are completely refined sugar free.

Our kids really loved these too, so I think they’ll be a regular make from now on. We had them warm from the oven with some of my vegan banana nice cream but they were equally great the next day, I actually woke up the morning after making these thinking I can’t wait to eat more of those cookies! Simple things, eh?

Makes approx. 12 cookies.

Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups oats, ground into a flour using food processor / blender
  • 1 tablespoon milled flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup of almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of oats (left whole, not ground this time)
  • 1/3 of a cup raisins / sultanas

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180*C. Line one or two cookie trays with baking paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl mix together the ground oats, flaxseed, coconut sugar, cinnamon, salt, bicarb and baking powder.
  3. Add the almond milk, coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
  4. Gently mix in the whole oats and raisins.
  5. Place spoonfuls of the batter onto the baking paper. These don’t spread much when cooking so flatten them a little as desired.
  6. Bake for 12-16 minutes, until the edges have gone golden brown.
  7. Enjoy!
