Tips, Tricks, & Variations
Storing the Cookies
You can store these cookies for up to 4 days. I suggest keeping them in an airtight container to keep them soft and fresh.
Make it Gluten Free
And be sure to check out these vegan gluten-free chocolate chip cookies for another gluten free treat.
Vegan Butter Alternatives
If you don’t have any vegan butter, you can substitute coconut oil or unsweetened applesauce. Note that cookies made with applesauce can be more dense.
Swap out the Raisins
Who doesn’t love a little more chocolate in their life? If you’re not a fan of raisins, try switching the raisins out for dark chocolate chips. Or for a fruitier treat, try using Craisins instead of raisins!
Make Sandwich Cookies
You can turn these into delicious oatmeal sandwich cookies pretty easily. Simply take a frosting, like this vegan buttercream frosting, and sandwich it between two cookies.
Or do the same with your favorite ice cream for a frozen treat.

One-Bowl Vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
- Preheat the oven to 350F (180C), and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, add the vegan butter and brown sugar. Mix with a wooden spoon. Add the agave syrup and vanilla extract and mix.
- Add the oats, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and raisin into the same bowl and mix it all together to form a dough.
- Roll the dough into 7 balls and place onto the parchment lined baking tray. Press each ball a bit with a wooden spoon to help them spread. Bake for 15 minutes.
- When you remove the cookies, they will be golden brown, but will still be very soft which is normal. Allow them to cool on the baking tray and firm up before serving.
