Prep time


Cooking time






  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

  • ¾ cup almond flour

  • ½ cup raisins

  • ½ cup vegan butter, softened

  • ½ cup maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the oats, almond flour, raisins, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, beat together the vegan butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until creamy and smooth.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the bowl with the wet ingredients and mix until well combined.
  • Use a cookie scoop or a spoon to drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown and set.
  • Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • Be sure to soften the vegan butter to room temperature before using it.
  • Use old-fashioned rolled oats for a hearty and chewy texture.
  • Do not overmix the dough, as this can lead to tough and dry cookies.
  • Add a sprinkle of sea salt on top of each cookie before baking for a sweet and salty flavor combination.
