Vegan and Gluten-Free Oat and Raisin Cookies

These take minutes to make and taste awesome. You could do these on the way to work and still not miss the bus. Have a go.

Makes about 24 cookies.



  • 100g porridge oats
  • 150g gluten-free flour
  • 100g unrefined sugar
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 80g raisins.


  • 150g vegan margarine
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 100g coconut yoghurt


Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 (190 degrees C)

Put all the dry ingredients apart from the raisins into a large mixing bowl and combine. Soften the margarine in the microwave (about 15 seconds) and blend this using a spoon with the golden syrup. Add the margarine mixture as well as the yoghurt and raisins to the dry ingredients and mix well.

Line a baking sheet with grease proof paper and put the cookie mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time onto the tray. Remember to leave a good bit of space in between them as they will expand out. You will probably have to do this in two batches of 12. Place in the middle of the oven and cook for 12 – 15 minutes until the cookies are golden brown and slightly crisp. Leave to cool on a cooling rack while you cook the next batch.
