Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

✨Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies✨ Fun Fact: when I was younger oatmeal raisin were my favorite cookies, but none of the other kids ever liked them because they were “healthy” cookies. The other day, out of curiosity, I looked up oatmeal raisin recipes and realized there is nothing healthy about them! So I decided to make my own. Warning: these are addicting!

Unlike most oatmeal raisin cookie recipes that are made with white flour and refined sugar, this recipe is made with real food ingredients, gluten free, and rich in fiber.

Key Ingredients in Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Tigernut Flour

If you’ve been following my blog for some time, you know that I LOVE using Tigernut Flour. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Tigernut is a root vegetable. It is naturally gluten free and has a sweet flavor which is why I love baking with it! It is also a prebiotic which feeds the good bacteria in your gut and enables them to thrive. You can find Tigernut Flour at Whole Foods and on Thrive Market.

Gluten Free Rolled Oats

You can’t have oatmeal raisin cookies without oats! I love oats. They are relatively inexpensive, nonperishable,  and so simple yet so delicious. I honestly have these cookies for breakfast on the go sometimes because they are basically an oatmeal bowl in cookie form.

Chia Seeds

If you’ve seen some of my more recent posts you also know that I love using chia seeds! Chia seeds are a great source of fiber and help contribute to satiety, in addition to other health benefits.
