  • 1/2 Cup Vegan Butter (softened)
  • 1 Cup Organic Coconut Sugar
  • 1 Egg or Flax Egg (1 Tblsp Flax Meal + 3 Tblsp Water)
  • 1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 Tblsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 1/4 Cups Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/4 Cups Rolled Oats
  • 3/4 tsp Xanthan Gum
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Raisins
  • 1 tsp Water (if needed)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F/176C.

  2. If you are using a flax egg, make the flax egg and refrigerate for 10 minutes.

  3. Cream together the sugar and the butter until it's smooth.

  4. Mix in the egg or flax egg, vanilla and the maple syrup into the butter mixture.

  5. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, xanthan gum, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Make sure that it is completely combined before adding the rolled oats. When it's done, you can add the raisins. If needed, add up to 1 tsp of water to make the mixture come together.

  6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and form the dough into 2 Tblsp balls. Leave enough room between cookies. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Top with cinnamon and salt if desired.
