  • 180 g rolled oats
  • 100 g unbleached plain flour
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp fine sea salt
  • 100 g unsalted butter room temperature
  • 160 g coconut sugar
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 120 g raisins


  1. Prepare a baking tray with a reusable silicone baking mat or non-stick parchment paper.
  2. Tip the oats, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl and stir to combine well. Set aside.
  3. Add the butter and coconut sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat the butter and sugar together on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  4. Crack in the egg, add the vanilla, and mix to combine.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix on a low speed. Mix just until the dry ingredients are incorporated then add the milk to loosen the dough slightly. Stir to combine and then turn off the mixer.
  6. Fold in the raisins using a spatula. Cover and refrigerate the dough for 1 hour.
  7. Once the dough has chilled, preheat the oven to 190ºC (375ºF).
  8. Divide the mixture into 15 portions. Each portion should be about 2 tablespoons of dough. Roll the portions into balls and place on the cookie sheet.
  9. Bake the cookies for 11-13 minutes, or until golden on the bottom. Allow the cookies to cool on the tray for 6 minutes before removing them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
