Try MyRecipes: Brown Sugarless Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


Due to popular demand from what you've been searching for, we bring you Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with no granulated or brown sugar. Since the sugar is what normally makes this chewy cookie so sweet, I replaced it with a dash a molasses for a natural sweetener - cause what's a cookie if it's not a little sweet, right? When you glance through the ingredients list, you'll notice these oatmeal raisin treats are actually pretty healthy. And I'm also pretty sure they were breakfast this morning (sorry not sorry). This is definitely one cookie I don't feel guilty after scarfing down 2... okay, maybe more like 5. I'd say that's a win win!


  • 1 cup instant oats
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp butter (melted)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup raisins
First, preheat the oven to 325 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, stir the oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together. In a separate bowl, whisk the butter, egg, vanilla, and molasses. Once blended, pour and fold into the floury oats mixture until even. Next sprinkle in raisins with love. Cover the dough and chill for 30 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, scoop out about 12-15 depending on the desired size of the cookie, and press into the top to flatten slightly. Bake for 11-13 minutes. Then enjoy!
