Crispy and chewy oatmeal raisin cookies that are completely gluten-free! These cookies are large and in charge, sure to be a new family favorite.
Oatmeal raisin cookies are my favorite! Who’s with me? I know chocolate chip are most people's favorites, but you cannot go wrong with a chewy and delicious oatmeal raisin cookie!
This oatmeal raisin cookie is completely gluten-free. I wanted to give a gluten-free option for all my gluten-intolerant followers as this is a prevalent food intolerance these days. If you’re not gluten-free, you can substitute for regular all purpose flour at a 1:1 swap.
What Ingredients are Needed for Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies?
Rolled Oats: Certified gluten-free old fashioned rolled oats work best for this recipe. Make sure you grab the ones that are certified gluten-free. Even though oats are naturally gluten-free, they are often cross-contaminated in production facilities.
Gluten Free Flour Blend: I used Premium Gold All Purpose Gluten Free Flour Blend that is a 1:1 swap for regular all purpose flour. I got mine on Amazon and there are a ton of other gluten free flour blend options available.
Raisins: I prefer Thompson seedless raisins but you can swap for golden raisins here if you prefer! Other fun swaps for raisins are walnuts, chocolate chips, or peanuts.
Butter: Unsalted butter, softened to room temperature so it can easily be beaten.
Vanilla Extract: To enhance the flavors.
Light Brown Sugar: Darkens the cookie and adds that delicious molasses flavor.
Granulated White Sugar: Helps give these cookies their chewy texture and of course adds some sweetness!
Cinnamon and Nutmeg: Just a small amount adds a ton of extra flavor. Omit if you’re not a fan.
Baking Soda: Aids in raising the cookies.
Eggs: Help to bind the cookies together.

How to Make Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Step One: Preheat the oven to 350° F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, add the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir to combine.
Step Two: In a large bowl with an electric hand mixer or in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, add the butter and both sugars. Beat until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla. Beat until combined. Incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in sections into dry ingredients are fully incorporated and a cookie dough starts to form. Fold in the oats and raisins.
Step Three: Using a tablespoon, scoop cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving 2” of space between each cookie dough ball. TIP: Store the remaining cookie dough batter in the fridge while the first batch is baking. This will chill the dough and make it less sticky/easier to work with.
Step Four: Bake for 12-13 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Let cool on a baking sheet 1-2 minutes before placing on a wire cooling rack.
