Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I can’t believe this is the first time I am sharing an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe with you (what the what?!).

Better late then never, I suppose, so let’s get to it.

There are so many ways to make an oatmeal raisin cookie; crunchy, chewy, crisp, etc.

This particular recipe is more cake-like (which I love) and comes together in just one bowl with no fancy tools needed.  Just dump and stir and and bake and enjoy.

If you prefer chocolate over raisins, that would be a delicious swap.  And this recipe can easily be made vegan by swapping out the egg for a flax or chia egg (just take 1 tablespoon of ground chia or flax seed and mix with 3 tablespoons of water and let sit until it thickens).

So what are you waiting for?!  Happy baking!

*Note: These cookies are the third recipe shared in my Whole Grain Summer Recipe series below.  The recipe start at 7:30 (if you want to jump ahead).

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups oatmeal
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 tablespoon ground chia seeds
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F/176C.
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with a silat mat or parchment paper (you can also just spray the pan with some cooking spray. You choose!).
  • In a large bowl combine oatmeal, white whole wheat flour, light brown sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, and kosher salt. Gently toss everything together.
  • Combine ground chia seeds with water in a small bowl and let rest for 5 minutes or until thickened.
  • Add in coconut oil, applesauce, chia mixture, and vanilla extract. Mix everything together until you have a thick, cookie-dough consistency. Add in the walnuts and raisins, stir until they are evenly distributed thought out the batter.
  • Scoop up a tablespoon of dough and use your had to form a ball, place on the baking sheet and squish down a bit with your fingers so they look like fat discs. These cookies down spread a lot once they cook, so you want to form the into a cookie shape before baking.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned on top and set through. Repeat until you have used all of your dough. Cool, eat and enjoy!

Notes

*Storage: I like to keep these stored in an airtight container on my counter for up to 5 days. You can also store them in the fridge or pop them in the freezer.
