Is there ever such a thing as too many cookies?

I think not!

Especially this time of year.

Who cares if Christmas is over?

I’m still baking all the cookies and pretending like it’s still the holidays.

I guess I do have New Years still to come; I’ll take that as a win for me and my cookie baking fetish!

The beginning of homemade cookies

Believe it or not, this was one of the very first paleo cookies I created years ago.

I was sixteen and had just started eating healthier.

At that time, I was suffering from a pile of chronic illnesses that kept in in the house and in bed most of the day, so I turned to cooking and baking to pass the time.

What was once a way to pass time and act as a bandaid to the pain, quickly became a newfound passion for cooking!

Years later, I am still making these cookies and they are still just as good as the very first time I made them. ๐Ÿ™‚

The flavor of these mock oatmeal cookies is seriously on point, if I do say so.

I decided against adding the word oatmeal to the title of the recipe, because people always end up commenting saying oatmeal isn’t paleo…

That’s why I didn’t put any actual oats in this recipe!

But they sure taste like the oatmeal cookies we all know and love.

Plus, this recipe is super low in added sugars and is sweetened with maple syrup and raisins, so it makes a perfect breakfast cookie as well.

Cookies for breakfast? Okay!

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine all ingredients until the dough is even and smooth.
  3. Use a small/medium ice-cream scoop and make 9-12 cookies (depending on the size of your scoop). Bake on 350F for about 8 minutes until slightly golden on the bottom edges. Cool slightly before eating (to allow cookies to "set" so they don't fall apart).

    Amazing! Wanted less sugar so I used 3 tbsp maple syrup and 1 tbsp water and theyโ€™ve held together perfectly. They took 11 mins for me.
    I also subbed 1/2tsp almond extract instead of 1 tsp vanilla as I love the flavour. Iโ€™ll be making these regularity!

    Hi just made these and love them! Question, i printed out the recipe the other day and it did not have the flax meal in it when I printed it? I think they taste great as is, wondering what the flax will do to the taste/texture?

    These cookies are my absolute favourite! They taste just like oatmeal cookies. I’m not a big fan of raisins so I usually omit or replace them with chocolate chips.
