Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies!


This healthy recipe for oatmeal cookies is an incredible kids’ dessert!

We know that fiber and a diet low in sugar play a critical role in kid’s nutrition.

Therefore, this kids’ recipe is prepared with ingredients full of healthy fiber and includes only natural sweeteners. We love a good recipe for healthy cookies!

 These delicious oatmeal cookies have a scrumptious chewy texture with hidden tasty bits of nuts, carrots, & coconut.

The natural sweetness of honey & raisins works wonderfully in flavoring the cookie.

After all, if it’s not sweet, kids might not even taste it.

They are a great healthy recipe for picky eaters!

 Switching the all-purpose flour with oats & whole wheat flour boosts satiety. This fiber also helps to decrease the risk of kids developing obesity and Type 2 diabetes.

Carrots pack in vitamins and are an immunity booster food, while raisins provide necessary calcium and potassium.


FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions


Can I substitute steel-cut oats for quick oats?

Steel-cut oats cannot be used as a substitute for rolled or quick-cooking oatmeal in crumbles and crisps.

The result would be too gritty if you use the steel-cut oats raw, whereas the results will taste mushy if cooked using this kind of oats.


Can I substitute maple syrup for honey?

Maple syrup is great for baking! It works well in many of our favorite recipes.

Maple Syrup can be used as a 1-for-1 substitute with honey, which means you’re getting the same sweetness without changing anything about your recipe or meal prep process.


Can I use AP flour instead of whole wheat flour?

Whole wheat flour may be substituted for all-purpose in most recipes.

To replace one-third of the amount called for, use ⅓ cup whole wheat and 2/3 cup all-purpose instead.


Can I add baking powder?

You can add baking powder. It may lead to a more elevated cookie. You can add chocolate chips too! That’s the great thing about cooking. Just be aware the results may vary if you alter the recipe.
