Homemade Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are served fresh out of the oven. As you bite in you hear a little crisp crunch, and are met with a chewy interior. Inspired by the classic Quaker Oats 'Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies' found on the inside of the lid. This variety is very indulgent with coconut butter (or oil) and coconut sugar, stepping more in line with the original for a crisp and light crunch around the edge with a chewy interior for the perfect cookie! I literally have to freeze the second variety and practice some serious self-control to not over-indulge. I love cookies, what is your favorite?
If you are a long-time follower of this blog, then you'll know we LOVE Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. I have posted 5 recipes to date, not including the one in my book, they say things get better over time and I must say this one is by far the best! If you want a sweet 'buttery' cookie, then this recipe is for you! These are hands down amaaaaazing! Cookies are meant to be enjoyed, the aroma as they bake make them nearly irresistible, then you bite in and they're better than the smell, even offering the comfort of home, somehow, someway. Golden morsels of pleasure.
PLUS coconut butter and sugar is a healthier choice than traditional butter AND coconut sugar has a lower glycemic index than brown and refined sugar, both found in the original recipe, AND gluten may be omitted. If that weren't enough you can even make them with me in my latest show where I demonstrate a healthy version and this variety.
Here is what they look like when you reduce the coconut butter to half, less 'buttery' and crisp, more chewy and full on delicious!
