I love including these cookies in my meal prep planning. Make a batch (or two) and store them in the refrigerator or freezer for the best, grab and go option all week long.

Ingredients and substitutions

  • Whole grain oats: healthy, hearty and filling!
  • Tahini: yummy sesame paste allows ingredients stick together. Also, using tahini makes for a nut-free cookie!
  • Agave nectar: maple syrup or sugar free agave are tasty alternatives. You can also use honey if you're not worried about keeping this recipe vegan.
  • Cinnamon: for additional, delicious flavor! Cinnamon and tahini pair very nicely together.
  • Raisins: the sweet, delicious star of the show in this recipe.
  • Water: a little water helps to moisten oats so they can be formed into cookies more easily!

Special equipment

  • Consider using a cookie scoop to portion dough! It's not required but it does come in handy.

Expert tips

  • When forming cookies, your hands may get a little sticky from the dough! This can make it quite difficult to shape them correctly. Simply take a moment and rinse your hands to remove the majority of stuck ingredients. This will get you moving again.
  • Keep in mind that you can shape your dough any way you want! You can makes balls or bites instead of cookies. Another fun option? Press dough into a parchment lined baking sheet, freeze and then cut into into squares or rectangles.
  • I really love sprinkling a little additional cinnamon on top of my cookies before eating. I highly recommend, it's SO TASTY!

    Do you need the sweetener?

      Hi, Jane! I've never made these without the sweetener so I'm not sure how they would taste without it. Let me know if you try! You could use honey or maple syrup as a substitute if you don't have agave. You could try sugar free agave if you're looking for less sugar. Thanks!
