When I think of the holidays, baking cookies comes to mind. It was one of the very few times I was in the kitchen baking with my Mom. Growing up I thought I just messed things up and got in the way, so I preferred and even said I didn’t know how to cook until I was about 28 years old.

Yet baking cookies has this special way of bringing me back to my childhood. I’d be in the kitchen with my Mom with Christmas music on in the background. There was so much joy and love at this time. So often growing up in my home there wasn’t that aliveness and warmth that I wanted.

I’ve recreated the warmth and goodness of cookies that you may remember from your childhood. And you’ll feel good about enjoying these delicious cookies.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Easy Ingredients

INGREDIENTS FOR THESE EASY OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES

Let’s keep these cookies quick and easy to make. No need to overcomplicate things, so you can use ingredients that you already have on hand.

Oats – Rolled oats work best for this easy oatmeal raisin cookies recipe. Instant oats won’t have the same effect and texture. The oats and flour will be the base of these delicious oatmeal raisin cookies.

Flour – I have tried a bunch of different oatmeal raisin cookies combos and found the best flavor profile with all purpose flour.

Raisins – Will give these cookies an extra bit of sweetness. And delicious to bite. If you don’t love raisins, you can substitute with cranberries or chocolate chips.

Coconut Oil – This has the same effect as butter in recipes.

Baking soda and baking powder – Will help the oatmeal cookies rise.

Cinnamon, vanilla, sugar, and salt – Will all enhance the flavor of these easy oatmeal raisin cookies.

Preheat the oven to 350 F / 176 C and line two baking trays with parchment paper.

In a separate mixing bowl, add the coconut sugar, coconut oil, water, and vanilla. Stir with a spatula or whisk.
