Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Baking cookies is the ideal way to spend a Monday night if you ask me. Last night I baked some vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, using a recipe from (you guessed it), Eat Drink and Be Vegan!


If you haven’t noticed yet I tend to grab a different cookbook off of my shelf every couple of weeks and run with it. My idea of a relaxing night is lounging in front of the TV with a good cookbook to plan my meals and recipes for the next couple of weeks. Using one cookbook at a time just makes my life easier, and this way none of my cookbooks get neglected or dusty on the shelves!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

vegetarian, vegan, soy-free, dairy-free, peanut-free, tree nut-free, seed-free, shellfish-oil, fish-free, nightshade-free, bean & legume-free


  • 3/4 cup + 1 Tbsp spelt flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 cup unrefined sugar
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp molasses
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup canola oil

Preheat oven to 350*F. In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Add oats, sugar, raisins, cinnamon, allspice, and salt. Stir to combine. In a separate bowl combine syrup, molasses, and vanilla; then add oil to incorporate. Add wet mixture to dry ingredients and stir to combine. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and spoon batter onto baking sheets; flatten slightly. Bake for 11 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cook 1 more minute on pan before transferring to cooling rack. Makes about a dozen cookies.

With all of the wholesome ingredients and spices, these cookies were packed with flavor! They are even boyfriend-friendly; it couldn’t have been more than 20 minutes after I baked these that half of them magically disappeared from the kitchen! Next time I am going to double the recipe to ensure there are some left over for me!


  1. Those cookies look great! I really need to get my hands on a copy of Eat, Drink and be Vegan. Maybe it’s time I suck it up and buy it online since every bookstore I’ve checked hasn’t had it.

    • I had trouble finding it at bookstores as well and finally got my hands on a copy at Barnes and Noble! Either way it’s definitely worth the purchase!
