Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (No Added Butter or Oil)

The next time you’re looking for a soft, chewy treat that doesn’t go overboard on sugar or use any butter, try these delicious Oatmeal Raisin Cookies!

The dough comes together in just a few minutes and the result is a soft, sweet cookie that you (or your kids) will absolutely love. There’s minimal cleanup because this recipe uses one bowl for prep and parchment paper for baking.

Sugar, butter and oil…

Did you know you can cut the amount of sugar in most recipes by 25-35% without noticing much difference in taste and texture? For this reason, we try to minimize the amount of sugar, butter and oil in our recipes. It’s way healthier and still tastes great!

Kid approved

If you have kids (or you just want a sweet treat), this recipe is the perfect guilt-free way to serve up an occasional cookie. The combination of oats, cinnamon, maple syrup and raisins delivers the flavor of a traditional oatmeal raisin cookie, with a much better nutrition profile.

A great pre/post-workout snack

Because oats and bananas are easy-to-digest carbs that power you up without weighing you down, these cookies double as a delicious pre/post-workout snack.
