Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Oatmeal raisin cookies are one of my favorites! I was inspired to make these from my love of the oatmeal  cookies at one of my favorite delis in La Jolla, California (The Cheese Shop). In my version, I used all natural, whole ingredients as I do with all of the recipes on my blog and added in raisins (I like to buy the Jumbo Raisins at Trader Joe’s, but you can use any kind in this recipe) and pumpkin seeds (optional) for added texture.

The ingredients for these oatmeal raisin cookies are all gluten-free, vegan, and refined sugar-free. They are made with mainly gluten-free oats, but also have a little bit of coconut flour. To hold it all together, I use a flax egg (1 tbsp. flax seed + 2.5 tbsp. water that sits for 5 minutes), but you can use a normal egg for a non-vegan version of this recipe. I also use coconut oil and maple syrup for it’s stickiness, but you can also use date syrup. A little bit of coconut sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon give it the perfect flavor!

Be mindful that the dough isn’t a typical cookie dough texture, but more like an oatmeal bake. When you are making the cookie shapes on your cookie pan, be sure to press the oats in firmly with your hand or the back of a spoon so they don’t break apart after baking. Once they are done baking, let them cool on the pan for 5-10 minutes before removing.
