Paleo (Gluten Free) Oatmeal Raisin Style Cookies

This recipe is adapted from the one found here, the best paleo chocolate chip cookies ever. I was never a huge chocolate chip cookie fan, but oatmeal raisin is my absolute favorite. If you read my blog regularly, you already know that. 🙂


I’ve already posted a recipe for gluten free oatmeal raisin cookies, but these are different because they don’t use oats or anything. No dairy, no grain, no eggs – but don’t let that scare you – they are delicious!


  • 1 c. almond meal
  • scant ¼ t. sea salt
  • ⅛ t. baking soda
  • ¼ t. cinnamon
  • 2½ T. melted butter
  • 2 T. honey
  • 1½ t. vanilla
  • 2 T. shredded coconut
  • 2-4 T. raisins


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the almond meal, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon.

Stir in the butter, honey, and vanilla.

Stir in the coconut and raisins last.

Bake for 10-11 minutes on a well oiled or parchment paper-lined cookie sheet (the edges should be golden).

Let them sit on the pan or remove to a plate for 5-10 minutes so they can firm up a bit.

Eat and enjoy! Hopefully, you will have more willpower than me and they will last a few days. If not, rest assured in knowing that they are quick to whip up another batch!

What do you think? Did you try them? Like them? Adapt the recipe again? Let me know!

    Looks like they will work great. I have to say I am off coconut. I think I might have binged a bit and now the smell is just throwing me.

    • You don’t really taste the coconut at all. I add it for consistency more than anything. So it’s a little crunchy like oats would be. It would be fine without coconut too!

    These sound fantastic! I want to give these a try! 🙂

    only thing missing was the quantity/batch size. i made a dozen and substituted 1/8 pf the almond meal with flax meal to give them an even nuttier flavor. i also needed to ‘flatten’ them like pancakes before baking as they don’t soften as they bake. thanks for the recipe
