Hello hello! Happy November y’all. Today I am sharing a healthier twist on your mama’s Oatmeal Raisin cookies. These magical chewy cookies are completely vegan (using Earth Balance butter alternative), made with coconut sugar and buckwheat flour. You can sub the Earth Balance butter with regular butter and use all purpose flour but if you’re looking for a healthier twist – give this recipe a go!
I brought these cookies out with my matcha donuts at my girls night last week and they were such a hit. I sent the girls home with some cookies in their gift bags and recieved some lovely texts the next day! One thing I gotta warn you, they are soooooo addictive. My boyfriend and I made a batch and ate them all within two days. I am not even a sweets person but we demolished about 12 of those cookies. #CheatDay?
2/3 cup coconut sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup Earth Balance butter, softened
2 free-range eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup buckwheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
3 cup whole wheat old fashioned oats (larger flakes)
1.5 cups raisins
1. Heat up your oven to 375 F. Line your baking pan with some parchment paper.
2. Mix the following in a bowl: sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Mix it up then combine your wet ingredients.
3. Add in your oats and raisins and mix it in your dough.
4. Place dough in small balls about the size of an ice-cream scoop onto your baking pan about 2 inches apart from each other.
5. Bake ’em up for 12-14 minutes and then let them cool. They might still look a little doughy at the end of that time but they will settle once you leave them out.
