Quick, easy, and delicious oatmeal cookies with no oven required. Kids will have a great time forming these into balls of cookie dough that they can eat right away since it does not contain any raw eggs. I found myself eating a lot of it right out of the bowl! This recipe can be made gluten-free by purchasing certified gluten-free oats and nut-free by replacing the cashew butter with your favorite brand or homemade sunflower seed butter.

  • 2 cups rolled oats, divided (gluten free if necessary)
  • 2 tablespoons raw cashew butter
  • 2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
  • ¼ cup agave or pure maple syrup (I used agave)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground golden flax seed
  • 3 tablespoons raisins or another dried bite-sized fruit (I used golden raisins and dried cranberries)


  1. In the bowl of a food processor, process 1.5 cups of oats until fine flour forms. Add the rest of the oats and pulse 3 times. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the cashew butter, oil, agave, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together until completely smooth. Add the oats, flax and dried fruit. Stir with a wooden spoon until completely combined. Let the mixture sit in the refrigerator for 5 minutes before forming into balls; I found the mixture to be too warm and sticky to form right away.
  3. Take the mixture out of the refrigerator, measure out with a measuring tablespoon, form and continue with the remaining dough. I store the cookie dough in a sealed container in the fridge since slightly chilled cookie dough tastes amazing.
