Honey Oatmeal Raisin Cookies without refined Sugar

This recipe is really fun to make even kids will be excited to join in the process. It takes only about 10 to 15 minutes to bake. It might still look underdone at this point but don’t worry just take them out of the oven while they still look underdone they will continue to bake and harden as they cool.

Before we proceed I know honey is interpreted as sugar by some people. However, I like to clarify what I mean by sugar-free in this cookie recipe.  I am simply referring to refined sugar like the white sugar, brown sugar and the likes.

This cookie recipe uses raw honey which can easily be replaced with maple syrup or agave nectar.  I hope that clarifies things for you? –  🙂

How to restore old cookies?

Simply pop them in a 425°F preheated oven for 4 to 5 minutes

Notes and Tips

  • Lining the baking pan with a parchment sheet is very important because it will make your baking pan come out clean and your cookies release effortlessly.
  • I used the old-fashioned oats for this recipe. However, you can use the quick oats for this.
  • I also used all-purpose flour but wheat flour will work perfectly well
  • It is advisable to use a metal baking pan over glass pans because glass pans retain heat longer and it may over bake the cookies
  • Since the dough will turn out quite wet it is very important to place it in the fridge before baking it for at least 20 minutes. Please don’t miss this step it is very important
  • If you have any leftover simply store it in an airtight container on the tabletop for up to  3 days.

Hi, is there a substitute for eggs in this recipe


Tuesday 14th of December 2021

@Jasni Makwana, I used to use honey, and banana instead of sugar, oil and eggs in my zucchini bread.

These are great! I used dried cranberries instead of raisins, turned out wonderful. I especially liked it was a small batch in case we didn’t like them! I’m glad to read that several people doubled the recipe, definitely a keeper, thank you!

I return to these cookies again and again. I always make them with either whole wheat flour or a combination of whole wheat and almond flour (for added protein). I also add more cinnamon and some nutmeg to suit our family's tastes. They are perfect. Thank you for this recipe!

Love this recipe, but made a few changes, used an extra 1/2 cup of oats, 2x the raisins and almond flour.

I replaced the flour with coconut flour (1/4 cup) to make them gluten free and added one egg . They were great!
