Oat and Raisin Cookies

Everyone loves cookies, they would be lying to tell you they didn’t. However, there is a fine art in baking a good cookie, whether you like them chewy, crunchy, gooey or cakey it takes practice and a great recipe!! Oat and raisin cookies are my favourite, especially when they are fresh and warm out of the oven. Having said that when I made these cookies the other day, I baked half and kept half in the fridge as cookie dough and it was dreamy!

This recipe is refined sugar free and can easily be made dairy free with the substitution of dairy free butter. Perfect for tucking into your children lunch boxes, taking into work or grabbing as a snack on the go. These are a great alternative to normal cookies and are just as quick and easy to make.

Makes around 12-15, thats if all the mixture makes it onto the tray! I always taste test the mixture…for quality control, obviously!!

  2. Mix together the flour, ground almonds and oats.
  3. Add the softened butter and mix together.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well until combined.
  5. If the mixture is a little dry at this stage add a touch more soft butter.
  6. Form cookie shapes out of the mixture and place onto a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.

I hope you enjoy making these! You can always try substituting the oats for more ground almonds and the raisins for 70% dark chocolate if you want!

  1. These cookies are absolutely delicious . I didn’t actually have a baked one. The raw dough cookies were all eaten before they made it to the oven. What a treat. Thank you x
