These soft, chewy, and crisp around the edges oatmeal raisin cookies give your grandma’s cookies a run for her money! These cookies are a gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free take on the classic recipe. I’m also of the opinion that the best way to consume oatmeal is in a cookie!

To be honest, oatmeal raisin cookies have always been my least-loved cookie, but I truly enjoy this recipe. They are perfect, freshly baked, dunked in a glass of almond milk, or with a cup of coffee. These are also incredible with a handful of chocolate chips thrown in or even some chopped nuts for more of a trail mix-style cookie. If you have never been an oatmeal raisin cookie lover, I challenge you to give these a go and let me know what you think!

  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder see note for paleo baking powder

  • 1 pinch sea salt

  • Add the almond flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cardamom to the mixed ingredients until well combined.
  • Add the oats and raisins and combine them together.

This recipe makes 24 small cookies or 12 big cookies. They spread quite a bit while baking, so leave enough room between the cookies on the baking sheet for them to spread.
*Note: If paleo, baking powder is technically not allowed because it contains cornstarch. I don’t mind because it is a negligible amount. If strictly paleo you can make an easy 3 ingredient paleo baking powder using this recipe from
