How to Make Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Preheat your oven to 350°F, then line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Stir the Dry Ingredients
Grab a medium mixing bowl and add in all of the dry ingredients: gluten free oat flour, gluten free rolled oats, baking powder, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground cloves and salt. Stir together thoroughly.
Whisk the Wet Ingredients
Now, add all of the wet ingredients to a large mixing bowl: coconut oil, coconut sugar, flax egg, vanilla and maple syrup. Whisk until well mixed.
Combine the Wet & Dry
Pour the dry ingredients over the wet ingredients. Stir and fold everything together until no flour patches remain. Now, fold in your raisins and walnuts (if using). You’ve just made your gluten free oatmeal raisin cookie dough!
Chill the Cookie Dough
Cover your bowl of cookie dough and place it in the freezer for 20 minutes, until it’s very firm.
Grab a cookie scoop, and scoop and drop cookie dough balls onto the baking sheet you prepped earlier. Press raisins into the tops of each ball, then flatten each ball with a fork.
Bake, Cool and Enjoy
Bake for about 14 minutes, then cool and enjoy the best gluten free oatmeal raisin cookies!

Tips for Perfect Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Make sure to use finely ground oat flour
Sometimes you’re in a rush to grind your oats when making homemade oat flour, but that can cause too-coarse bits of oats to be in your cookies, and thus lead to crumbly cookies. Make sure to grind your oat flour to a fine flour, or just buy a good one online—like this gluten free oat flour (I just found this and am so excited!).
Don’t skip the freezing part.
You know I almost never ask you to freeze your cookie dough—so when I do, it’s important! 😉 For just the right texture and perfect amount of spread, you gotta freeze this oatmeal raisin cookie dough.
Make sure to freeze your cookie dough until very firm.
The goal of freezing the cookie dough is to get it to such a firm level that it’s practically solid when you scoop it onto the cookie sheet. That way, it’ll “melt” into the perfect shape and texture while baking, making for the best gluten free oatmeal raisin cookie!
How to Store Your Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
“How long do oatmeal raisin cookies last?” These dairy free oatmeal raisin cookies last for 1-2 weeks at room temperature, and about 1-3 months in the freezer (just like these Chewy Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies).
“How about when I freeze ‘em?” Just make sure to store your GF oatmeal raisin cookies in an airtight or freezer-friendly container (if freezing) to keep ‘em fresh! If freezing, allow your gluten free oatmeal raisin cookies to thaw for 10-20 minutes before enjoying.
Chewy, moist centers with crispy edges and just the right amount of oats and raisins—the best gluten free oatmeal raisin cookies!
