Step #1

Preheating the Electric Oven

Preheat the electric oven to 350° F temperature. Take a baking tray, put a Silpat on it, and spray it down with cooking spray so the cookies don’t stick to the tray. 

Step #2

Preparing the Dry Ingredients

Take rolled oats, whole wheat flour, coconut sugar, cinnamon powder, baking soda, and kosher salt in the mentioned quantity in a large bowl and gently mix with a fork. 

Step #3

Preparing the Chia Egg

Take one tablespoon of ground chia seeds and mix it with three tablespoons of normal water in a cup or small bowl, gently mix with a fork, and keep that for around 10 minutes. It will take a sticky form. 

Step #4

Adding Wet Ingredients to the Dry Ingredients

Add melted coconut oil, unsweetened apple sauce, vanilla extract, and a chia egg in the mentioned quantity to the dry mixture. Now, stir it with a large wooden spoon or a spatula to make a thick batter. 

Step #5

Adding Raisins and Walnuts to the Batter

Put some raisins and chopped walnuts into the thick batter and mix with the spatula, so it takes the form of cookie dough.

Step #6

Giving the Cookie Dough Shapes of Cookies 

Take a tablespoon full of cookie dough on your palm and roll it out and give the form a small disk or a cookie shape. These cookies won’t spread out mulch after being baked, so they will come out from the oven, the way they’ll be in. 

Step #7

Baking the Cookies

Put the cookies on the preheated Silpat mats on the baking tray in the preheated oven, and bake at 350°F for 10 minutes or until the cookies become golden brown. You can make around twenty cookies with this dough. You can make two trays of cookies at a time or you can also do it in batches. 

After the cookies are prepared, cool them well, serve them to your loved ones, and also taste them yourself.


You can keep them in airtight containers on your kitchen countertops for 5-6 days. You can also keep them in the refrigerator if you want to keep them fresh longer.

1. Should I soak raisins before baking cookies?

Raisins are so dry, that they can absorb the liquid substance from your baked food. So, the best idea for an efficient baker will be to soak the raisins before baking cookies. 

2. Should I chill the oatmeal raisin cookie dough before baking?

No, you don’t need to chill the oatmeal raisin cookie dough before baking. 

3. What is the quantity of oatmeal raisin cookies’ calories and fat?

From 1 oz of oatmeal raisin cookie, you’ll get 123 calories and 5-6 grams of fat. In the recipe, I’ve prepared you’ll get 65 kcals of calories and a total of 6 grams of fat. 

4. Are oatmeal raisin cookies good for weight loss?

Oatmeal raisin cookies contain more fiber. Fiber will help you reduce the levels of blood cholesterol and also reduce heart disease risks. Again, fiber is also good for exact bowel function. The recipe I’ve prepared here contains coconut oil instead of butter and coconut sugar instead of sugar. So, it contains fewer calories, and fats, no cholesterol, and more fiber. It will be good for your health but I can’t ensure that you’ll lose weight.
