Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe

So this is a recipe that doesn't really have any modifications, but I've made it a few times and it's way too good to keep to myself.

Happened to stumble upon it when I googled "healthy oatmeal raisin cookie recipes" which took me to this post on The Skinny Gourmet, which in turn led me to this post on David Lebovitz's site.

I follow the recipe on DL's site, except I substitute a gluten-free flour and use maple syrup instead of granulated sugar. Both of which keep the health-factor high and the likelihood of a sugar rush/crash low.

Sacrificing the sugar does result in a cookie that's not as sweet as usual, but the raisins and brown sugar give it enough sweetness for me.

If you happen to try this recipe out, please let me know what you think!

Bon apetit!

  1. I was down by the time I read the first link you mentioned here, but couldn't get the recipe. Only that thin-crisp looks of yum cookie photos. But then there it goes the recipe on the second link. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I've always wanted to make thin crisp cookies like that. Will try to make it soon.
