The best healthy peanut butter oatmeal raisin cookies that are gluten-free, vegan, and refined sugar-free! Incredibly soft and chewy with crisp outer edges. Packed with rich peanut butter flavor and chocolate chips, these oatmeal cookies are simply delicious!


  • ½ cup coconut oil, solid but softened, similar to softened butter
  • ⅔ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter I used all-natural, made with 100% peanuts
  • 1 egg, at room temperature, sub flax egg to make vegan
  • ¾ cup gluten-free old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup raisins
  • Optional: chocolate chips or gems


  1. In a large bowl, cream together coconut oil and coconut sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in peanut butter and vanilla extract. Beat in the egg or flax egg until well blended.
  2. Combine the oats, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add into the peanut butter mixture and beat until just combined.
  3. Fold in raisins. Chill cookie dough, covered, for at least 2 hours and up to 1 week.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Form rounded tablespoons of dough into balls and arrange them about 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake cookies in batches in the middle of the oven for 12 minutes, or until just pale golden. Cool cookies completely on the baking sheet before removing and serving.
