One bowl cinnamon oatmeal raisin cookies

One bowl cinnamon-y oatmeal cookies with raisins and coconut. Perfect as on-the-go snack or breakfast. Kid-friendly too


Why we Love it: 

  • Oatmeal rich
  • One bowl
  • Quick and healthy
  • Toddlers can help 🙂

These soft and chewy one bowl cookies are the perfect on-the-go snack every parent might appreciate.

Last winter, when I was at home with D., I used to make these right before we went on our daily snow walk around the block. As toddlers tend to run out of energy fast (especially when carrying around a snowsuit like this one), I always make sure to have a hangry snack in my backpack.   


They are best enjoyed right after you take them out of the oven (and they cool down a bit).




Simple Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

These healthy one bowl cinnamon-y cookies are a wonderful quick to prepare snack for the whole family. 
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Resting time 5 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 12 cookies


  • 1 cup oats, GF if needed
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour, or GF mix if needed
  • 1 egg, large
  • 1/3 cup molasses (or brown sugar)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil or melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins, soaked in water if desired
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon /or pumpkin spice mix/ , organic


  • In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients and mix until well combined. If you choose to soak raisins beforehand, remove the water and add raisins only to the dough. 
  • With a spoon or ice cream scoop divide the dough into pieces and place on parchment paper in your baking sheet of choice (these simple ones on Amazon will do a fantastic job). 
  • Place in preheated oven and bake for about 15 minutes (until they start to get golden). 
  • Remove and set aside to cool down. Then invite your toddler (or someone else) to eat-test. 

Recipe Notes

ON-THE-GO: These simple cinnamon cookies make a perfect on the go treat for little ones (and not so little ones). Once they cool down, I put them in a small food container (like this one from IKEA) and bring them along in the park. They are just ideal for little hands! 
VARIATIONS: You can always play around with the spices by adding ginger spice or other desired spice of choice. Raisins can also be substituted with other small dried fruits like cranberries, blueberries and even dried cherries. 
SOAKING: If your dried fruits are too stiff or dry I recommend soaking them in water first, otherwise they'd get even dryer when you bake them.
