Here is a Paleo oatmeal cookies recipe with raisins to help you live a Paleo lifestyle and still enjoy delicious food with almond flour, coconut flour, flax meal, and honey. This cookie recipe is chewy, soft, and healthy. I eat them for snacks and desserts all the time!
It can be a real challenge to live a Paleo and grain-free lifestyle and still enjoy delicious food. Well, we are going to make it a little bit easier for you here because we have a delicious Paleo cookie recipe for you. This recipe is made with dates. These cookies are soft and chewy, just like they should be.
The cookies use a mixture of almond flour, coconut flour, flax meal, and honey to sweeten naturally. I love mixing the different flours together because then you can't taste any one flour and it makes a really good texture.
These cookies are sweetened with dates and honey, so they are much healthier than regular oatmeal cookies. I also think you will be surprised by how close the texture is to "real" oatmeal cookies.
One of the best things about cookies is portion control so you know exactly how many cookies you've eaten. They are also great for kids because they can grab them and go. These are also healthy enough that you may even want to have one with your breakfast or for a snack.
Tips and Tricks
- You could add in some nuts if you like, such as walnuts or pecans.
- You may replace the butter with coconut oil if you prefer.
- The flax meal is what gives these the texture of oatmeal cookies.
- One reader replaced the raisins with chocolate chips.

These "oatmeal" cookies are chewy and soft. They can have nuts added in, if you prefer.
- 2 Cups Almond Flour
- ¼ Cup Coconut Flour
- ½ Cup Flax Meal
- ½ teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
- ½ teaspoon Real Salt
- ½ Cup Dates (heaping, about 14-15 small dates)
- ¼ Cup Raw Honey
- ½ Cup Grass-Fed Butter (softened to room temperature) or Coconut Oil
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- 2 Eggs
- ⅔-¾ Cup Raisins
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, flax meal, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
- Place the dates in the bowl of a food processor and process until chopped well, forming a paste. Add the honey to the dates and process until blended together. Add the butter to the processor and blend with the dates and honey.
- Add the vanilla and eggs to the processor and blend well.
- Add the dry ingredients and blend in with the wet until just combined. Add in the raisins (more or less, according to your preference) and stir into the dough.
- Scoop out mounds of dough (2 T. per cookie) and roll into a ball. Place the dough balls on a greased baking sheet or a Silpat on a baking sheet and press down to about ½" thickness (cookies will not change shape or spread at all while baking).
- Bake cookies in preheated oven for 13-15 minutes, or until just turning brown on the bottom.
- Remove them from the oven and cool them cookies on a wire cooling rack.
