These healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, spiced with warm cinnamon, are crisp outside. The almond butter gives this little cookie a nice chew on the inside. Sweetened with date syrup and raisins, these cookies make a great dessert on their own or with banana nice cream. They are so legit; you can even enjoy them with a golden milk latte or pumpkin spice milk latte for breakfast. #oatmealraisincookies #healthyveganrecipes #danielfastrecipes #oatmealraisincookiesvegan #oatmealraisincookiesglutenfree


Units Scale
  • 2 cups rolled oats, divided (use gluten-free if gluten sensitive)
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/2 cup Simple Homemade Date Syrup
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 Tbsp ground flaxseeds (or flax meal)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (or vanilla powder)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Take half (one cup) of the rolled oats, put them into a small blender, and grind them into a flour consistency.
  3. Put the ground rolled oats and all other ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir well. The batter will be stiff and sticky.
  4. Prepare a parchment-lined or silicone mat baking sheet pan.
  5. Scoop up a small spoonful of cookie batter, roll into a ball (a little smaller than a golf ball, about 1-1/2 inches or 4 cm in diameter), and arrange them on the baking sheet pan. You should get approximately 24 cookies from this recipe.*
  6. Take a spoon and carefully press on each ball to flatten them out slightly.
  7. Bake them in the oven for 15 minutes or until slightly browned on the bottom.
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 to 10 minutes and enjoy!

*A yield of 24 cookies gives you eight servings (3 cookies per serving).
