Oatmeal Raisin Breakfast Cookies (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free)

Oatmeal Raisin Breakfast Cookies (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free)

Breakfast cookies, they are a beautiful thing.

While the idea of eating a cookie for breakfast may seem odd to some, it’s not an off the wall concept.  After all, granola is really just a deconstructed oatmeal cookie isn’t it?  The problem is that usually granola, and cookies, are loaded with sugar, fat, and inferior oils.  That’s why I made my Superfood Granola Bark, and now I bring you this Oatmeal Raisin Breakfast Cookie.  


Ultimately what I was going for is an oatmeal cookie that tastes as good as an unhealthy one, but with lots of fiber, healthy fat, and protein.  Let’s just say these really hit the mark.  

These are excellent for a quick grab-and-go breakfast but also make a wonderful treat with tea in the afternoon or evening.  They freeze beautifully, so I love to make a double batch and have them ready at all times.  


“what else can i use?”

  • I use golden raisins here, but regular raisins or any chopped dried fruit can be used.
  • Like most of my baked goods recipes, feel free to swap in brown or granulated white sugar in place of the coconut sugar.

These cookies are perfect any time of day, and sure to go right into your weekly rotation.  Enjoy!

    Delicious!! These are soft and tasty. One quick note: room temperature coconut oil means it needs to be softened to a liquid.

    Anyways, they are some of the best cookies I have ever tasted. I am brand new to gluten-free and was surprised how yummy they taste.

    • Carol, I’m so glad you loved these! By having the coconut oil at room temperature, it acts much like softened butter in the creaming phase – but obviously the end result was just as good, and I’m so thrilled that these were a part of your introduction to gluten-free baking!

  • I am so excited to try these. Oatmeal raisin is one of my favorite cookies; now I can have them for breakfast!
