In the mood for baking! Anyone else been baking more these days? The best thing about these yummy chocolate oatmeal cookies is that you can enjoy treats without guilt and feel amazing knowing you are putting superfoods in your body at the same time!
These cookies are extra soft + THICK! This recipe was inspired by another cookie recipe but revamped with our own Philosophie touch. These cookies are vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and high in antioxidants like reishi, which has healing properties and helps boost your immune system. Something we all need more of in this new world we’re living in!
1 ½ cup rolled oats
¾ cup all-purpose gluten-free baking flour (I like Bob's Red Mill)
1 tsp cornstarch
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp salt
1 flax egg (1 tbs ground flax + 3 tbs warm water)
¼ cup coconut oil (melted)
¾ cup sugar, agave or Cacao Bee Honey (or a few drops of stevia)
1 tbsp dairy-free milk (try this homemade cashew mylk!)
½ tsp vanilla extract
½ cup raisins
For the flax egg, combine ground flax and warm water in a small bowl. Set aside to thicken.
In a medium bowl, add the dry ingredients (rolled oats, flour, cornstarch, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and Cacao Magic) and stir to combine.
In a large bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil and your sweetener of choice.
Add flax egg, dairy-free milk, and vanilla extract and continue to whisk.
Add dry ingredients to wet, and stir until fully combined then gradually fold in your raisins.
Chill dough for (at least) 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 °F and scoop ½ tbsp of dough and place onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Flatten the cookies as they will not spread much during baking then bake for 10-12 minutes, or until edges begin to turn golden brown.
Let cool on pan for a couple of minutes, then transfer to a rack to continue cooling.
