Who doesn’t like cookies?  The oatmeal raisin cookie is such a classic.  Most of us have memories making oatmeal raisin cookies as kids.  I know I used to.  So I wanted to create a healthier of version of the classic oatmeal raisin cookies.  This oatmeal raisin cookie recipe is not only healthier, it is also gluten free and vegan.

Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

A healthier version of the classic cookie!



  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl.
  • Mix wet in another.
  • Add wet to dry and mix well.
  • Fold in the raisins.
  • Drop cookies onto a lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Wait until the cookies are completely cooled before removing.

I made this recipe two times. One with chopped dates and the other with raisins. Either is good, but I loved the chopped dates! Store these cookies in the fridge. If you intend to keep them longer than a week or two, you can freeze them. I freeze mine in a zip lock bag. Enjoy!

  1. These really look good. I love oatmeal raisin. Nice to have a non chocolate recipe for the ones that can’t eat chocolate.

  2. I’m just wondering if you add the flax meal right into the rest of the dough or do you mix it with water and let sit first? I’m new to egg replacement……Thanks!

  3. I am in process of making these, cos they look so delicous :-)
    I have one question about the flax. I am new to cooking in general, but those healthy recipes are very inspirational (Thank you)
    Do you add the flax to the wet ingredients or after you have mixed the wet and dry, you add them to the dough?
    Thanks :-)

  5. These sound delicious! Do you have to keep them refrigerated? I’m thinking about making these to take on a trip and refrigeration isn’t possible.

    • Thank you! If you are on a short trip, I think they would be fine, but if left unrefrigerated past 3 days might be an issue.

  6. It is pouring here! We are out of maple syrup so I am going to use honey. We are using bananas instead of applesauce as well? We will report back!
