  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp flax seed meal
  • 2 tbsp water
  • ¾ cup melted coconut oil
  • ½ cup cane sugar
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • 1 tbsp non-dairy milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup raisins


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

  2. To a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking soda and powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Combine flax seed meal and water in a small bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes.

  3. To a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the flax egg, melted coconut oil, sugars, molasses, milk, and vanilla. Pour wet mixture into dry. Stir with a spatula or wooden spoon until a soft dough forms. Fold in raisins.

  4. Use a small cookie scoop to distribute dough onto a baking sheet. Slightly press down the cookies with the palm of your hand. Bake for 12 minutes until light golden brown and slightly firm (but still a bit soft) to touch. Let cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire cooling rack.
