Vegan GF Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Vegan GF Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

My mom just had foot surgery … I sent her tulips 🌷 and flexible ice packs that have a cover with a strap 🧊

And for my dad who is currently assuming the role of nurse, I’m sending him these oatmeal raisin cookies … it’s his favorite kind of cookie, and I feel good sending them because these are super clean ingredients + ridiculously delicious 🤗🤓

~ super easy & fast to make



~ 1 cup (100g) old-fashioned rolled oats (I used One Degree gluten-free)

~ 1/4 cup (32g) tapioca starch / flour (this helps to bind the cookies and make them crispy ..  I used 1/8 cup because I like them a bit chewier)

~ 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

~ 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

~ 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

~ 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons (120g) pure maple syrup

~ 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons (160g) almond butter (or any nut or seed butter with 1 ingredient)

~  1/2 teaspoons (8g) vanilla extract

~ 2 tablespoons (30g) water

~ 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons (60g) raisins (or chocolate chips)



~ Preheat oven to 350°F & line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper.

~ In a large bowl, add the oats, tapioca starch, cinnamon, baking powder and salt & whisk really well. True confession … I put all the ingredients in all at once (oops), and they mixed up fine (whew)!

~ To the same bowl, pour in the syrup, almond butter, vanilla &water. Stir until well combined. Add the raisins & stir again until it’s very sticky and wet.

~ Drop by heaping tablespoons, leaving a couple of inches between. Do not flatten out the dough. It should be a little wet, very sticky & hold its shape. Bake on the middle rack for 9 minutes. They should be poofed up & a nice light golden color. They may seem a bit undercooked but they will finish cooking as they cool, you do not want to over bake these.

~ Cool on the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to completely cool on a rack.
