Gluten Free, Healthy And Delicious

These oat flour raisin cookies are quick to make, healthy and gluten free! I learnt how to make my own oat flour at home, it’s so easy and quick to do. You end up with a healthy alternative to regular processed flour- learn how to make it here!

If you don’t fancy making your own oat flour, use any flour of your choice. The great thing about these cookies is how versatile they are. You can swap out the sugar for an alternative such as sweetener or agave. You can use extra virgin olive oil instead of melted butter and you can also use nut milk instead of cow’s milk.

These Are The Chewy, Soft Kind Of Cookies

I loove that about this recipe. For me, these hearty cookies are best cooked til they just turn golden brown then sprinkled with demerera sugar. If you prefer them a bit crunchier, feel free to cook them for a few minutes longer. These cookies don’t spread much when baking like other cookie recipe’s I’ve tried. For me, that’s great as it means you get slightly crispy edges and still have the soft chewy texture on the inside! Just be aware that you should flatten them before baking as they wont melt down too much.

Add some spice

These cookies are amazing with a half a teaspoon of cinammon. It’s like a warm hug in cookie form! Or add some mixed spice, nutmeg, ginger, whatever you fancy – it all works amazingly well in this versatile cookie recipe.

Oat flour or rolled oats?

This recipe uses oat flour, but you can also make these with whole rolled oats if you prefer. The texture will be more chunky but will still taste great. The oat flour in this recipe tends to absorb liquid quicker than other flours, so you may need to add more milk a bit at a time until it comes together. If you find you add too much milk, just add a teaspoon of oat flour at a time until it forms a dough.

Swap out the raisins for chocolate chips for a real treat

Some people are not a fan of raisins and would much prefer chocolate chips in their oat flour cookie – swap out the raisins if you wish! My preference is raisins though as their chewiness blends really well with this cookie.
