Diabetic Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

This is my absolute favorite homemade cookie in the whole world! When I make a batch, I have to hide them, give part of them away, and basically lock them in the cabinet. They just don't last. I got so tired of not being able to eat the regular ones from the Elves in the magic tree, so I adapted a really good recipe. I hope you like them as much as I do.

I like to make things even healthier so I used 1/4 cup coconut oil and 1/4 cup butter. I used wholewheat flour and 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda. I used 1 tsp cinnamon and added 1/4 cup grd dried cranberries and 1/3 cup grd sunflower seeds and 1/4 cup raisins. I baked at 350 degrees for 12 minutes and they came out delicious. Next time I may add 1 scoop of protein powder.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Mix the flour with the cinnamon.
  3. Cream the butter and both the sugars until fluffy. Add the egg, milk, and vanilla. Gradually add the flour mixture.
  4. Stir in oats and raisins.
  5. Drop by teaspoonfuls if small cookies are desired, tablespoons if larger cookies are desired onto parchment paper (this stuff is reusable - one sheet will do the whole batch).
  6. Bake until golden brown, 10-12 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
