Irresistibly soft and chewy vegan oatmeal raisin cookies drizzled with vanilla icing.



Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups Rolled Oats
  • 3/4 cup Raisins (optional)
  • 3/4 cup Flour
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Cornstarch (helps keep the cookies soft and chewy)

Wet Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup Vegan Butter (softened)
  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 cup Apple Sauce (unsweetened)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Icing (optional):

  • 2 tbsp Coconut Cream (the thick creamy part on top of a can of full-fat coconut milk)
  • 1 tsp Coconut Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a bowl, thoroughly mix together all dry ingredients besides raisins.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together all wet ingredients until combined.
  3. Make a hole in the middle of the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients. Fold together until every thing has combined into a thick doughy consistency, but do not over mix.
  4. Fold in raisins or any mix-ins of your choice into the dough.
  5. Using a cookie scoop, scoop even cookie dough balls onto the parchment lined baking sheet.
  6. Flatten cookies to about 1/2 inch thickness (I used the bottom of a glass to do this). The cookies need to be flattened before baking because they do not spread as much as non-vegan cookies during baking.
  7. Bake the cookies at 350F for 10-14 minutes until they are starting to brown around the edges but are still soft in the middle.
  8. While cookies bake, stir together the icing ingredients. If the icing is too thick, add 1 tsp of coconut milk or milk of your choice as needed to thin the icing to your desired consistency.
  9. Once done baking, remove cookies from oven and let cool on a cookie cooling rack for about 5 minutes. Drizzle with icing and enjoy!
