Coconut Oil No Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

These Coconut Oil No Oatmeal Raisin Cookies have the same taste and texture as a traditional oatmeal cookie, but made grain free! Sweet, chewy, and so delicious!

Coconut Oil No Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I have always loved oatmeal raisin cookies. The chewy texture, the sweet raisins, and the subtle taste of cinnamon- the perfect cookie in my opinion. Unfortunately, oatmeal gives me a pretty bad stomach ache so I created these with coconut instead and it’s amazing how spot-on the texture is! It even has that rough look of an oatmeal cookie. I thought they would be good, but I didn’t think they would be THIS good!

I didn’t just make these oat-less, I also made them dairy free by using coconut oil and refined sugar free by using coconut sugar. These are chewy and caramelized on the edges and so soft in the middle. Eating one reminds me exactly of eating a traditional oatmeal cookie- they are that delicious!

Now I am all about a chewy cookie and have been known to under bake them just to be sure they aren’t overdone. These are a little different though. It may seem like a long time to bake them, but you want to follow that or they won’t hold together. I learned this the hard way 🙂 If you like them crispy, feel free to add a couple minutes. They also need a few minutes to cool on the sheet tray because they will be too soft to handle right away.

Okay, so for you raisin haters- I know you’re out there- yes, you can replace the raisins with chocolate chips. Or cranberries, or nuts, or really whatever your favorite add-in is. Nothing can take the place of a tasty plump raisin, but do as you wish!

  1. My daughter is on the SCD. Can I sub baking soda for baking powder and honey for the coconut sugar?

      Hi Carol, yes to the baking soda, but I’m not sure about the honey. I think it would work but you’ll have to change the dry ingredients a little since honey will add moisture. You could try adding some more almond flour. I hope that helps you!

  2. Thsee cookies look soooo good. My hubby is allergic to Almonds and wheat flours. What flour can I use? Also cannot do egg yolks. Would just egg whites work?
    Thanks

      Thanks, Kathy! You can use a gluten free mix if you he can tolerate that. There is a chance cassava flour may work as well, I haven’t tried it but I know that converts pretty good usually and is affordable. I think egg whites would be fine- use 2 egg whites in place of the egg. Hope they come out good!
