Raw Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal Cookies


There’s something just so satisfying and homey about raisin oatmeal cookies, isn’t there? They just scream home-cooked comfort to me. And I don’t know about you guys, but I like my raisin oatmeal cookies with a lot of cinnamon for a really warm and spicy flavor.

So these Raw Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal Cookies from Chef Xavier Bonnafous of Southern Pressed Juicery were a must-share recipe. Besides being gluten-free, Paleo, vegan and vegetarian, they’re also delicious and super easy to make. No wonder Southern Pressed Juicery says that these are one of the hottest items on their menu. They’re so cool … they’re hot. Har har!

  1. So why are these cookies called oatmeal, when there is no oatmeal in them? Go figure. I would think Raisin Almond Cookies would be a better description of the recipe. Anyway, I do use raw oats in cookies and don’t bake them.

  2. I think it’s just the overall flavor that reminds you of a traditional oatmeal cookie. 🙂
