Course: Dessert, Snack
Cuisine: American, Vegan
Servings: 12 cookies


  • ½ cup + 1 tbsp (144g) almond butter
  • cup (100g) maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups (120g) quick oats
  • ½ cup (56g) almond flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon optional
  • ½ cup raisins


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and set aside a lined cookie sheet.
  • Your almond butter should be smooth and runny. If it's too hard, microwave for 15-30 seconds until runny.
  • Combine almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract in a bowl and mix until well combined.
  • Add in oats, almond flour, baking soda, and cinnamon and mix until a smooth dough forms. If your dough is still dry, add in plant-based milk of choice 1 teaspoon at a time as needed to form a smooth and slightly sticky dough. Fold in raisins.
  • Scoop about 2 tbsp of cookie dough and roll into a ball. Place on cookie sheet and flatten slightly with your hands. Repeat with remaining cookie dough, leaving about an inch of space in between each cookie. Bake 11 minutes.
  • Let cookies cool for about a minute on the cookie sheet, then transfer to a cooling rack. Let cool completely before serving. Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.
