Raisin and Cinnamon Cookies


Raisin and Cinnamon Cookies


I literally am the cookie monster! Whenever I crave something sweet, it’s one of two things – a slice of lemon drizzle cake or a cookie! My raisin and cinnamon cookies are super easy to bake and the smell of them baking is just too good. The raisins and cinnamon are natural sweeteners so will satisfy your sweet tooth within the first bite. These should make around 12-14 cookies, but if you’re like me, most of the dough will have gone before they reach the oven!

Ready in 25 minutes Good For , , , , ,


Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.

In a large bowl mix everything together to form a dough, then stir through the raisins. Using your hands grab about a tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball, then place the ball on the paper-lined baking tray. Repeat with the rest of the mixture, placing the balls at least 10cm apart.

Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven until they have turned into golden-coloured cookies.

Leave to cool on a wire rack then dig in.

    Hi, do you press down the balls of dough on the tray or literally leave as is? Thank you, can’t wait to try!

      I press them down a little bit to stop them rolling :)

    Cannot wait to try this one for the weekend. Can I use rice flour or coconut flour instead of spelt flour?

      Hi babe, rice and coconut flour are much more absorbent so you will need to add more liquid otherwise it will get quite dry xx

    Sadly, this recipe did not work at all for me.. I followed it exactly and measured out every ingredient, but I ended up with a runny ‘dough’ that was certainly not able to be rolled, and the cookies ended up something like a wet granola even though I baked them for 12 minutes.
    I think maybe some time for the mix to sit would help, maybe even some time in the fridge to firm up. Not sure what else went wrong. The taste was good but disastrous otherwise!

      Hi babe, I’m so sorry to hear this. Maybe next time add the liquid gradually until its a thick dough. xx

      might have used the wrong oats?

    These look amazing! I am looking for recipe ideas to bring some healthy snacks for my summer trip to Las Vegas. I was told that healthy snacks there are not that healthy. How long do you think these would stay fresh?

      Hi babe, they will last 3-4 days in an airtight box xx
