I’ve been getting so annoyed latly with over complicated recipes and 50 ingridents for one oat and raisin cookie! I don’t understand why some food bloggers need to make cooking so difficult, espically when recipes are free from. It’s hard enough trying to find hard to pronounce products in the shops; let alone following 100 steps just to make the dish!
I spent almost an hour trying to find a half simple recipe for oat and raisin cookies last week and closed my laptop in frustration and defeat. It seemed like everywhere I went I couldn’t find a simple recipe. So I decided to try and make my own, no fancy ingridents and no long, complicated method!
I hope that my recipe is easier to follow, I’ve made it dairy free and gluten free so more people can enjoy it and hopefully they will taste amazing like mine did! It took me a few attempts to make this recipe it has to be said but I feel that I’ve finally perfected it! Although if there’s anything you think could be changed, do let me know in the comments!
Little tip, they are amazing while still warm!! I rushed some to the partners work so everyone could enjoy them at their best! Also it doesn’t matter if they’re a little brown, they still taste amazing!
Fancy making another fun cookie recipe? Check out the peanut butter cookies we made and how amazing they were!

- 180g Raisins (Sultanas or currants also work)

- Preheat the oven to 180C.
- In a bowl add the brown sugar, castor sugar, coconut oil, eggs and vanila and mix well.
- Stir in the flour, cinnamon and salt.
- Once mixed add the raisins, mix and then add in the oats.
- The mixture should be the right consistancy to roll in your hands, if not add some more oats. Add small balls onto a tray and flatten slightly, leave space as they may spread.
- Cook for 14 minutes or until golden brown.
- Leave to cool on the tray for a few minutes and then transfer to wire rack.
