Oatmeal Raisin Cookies {vegan + gluten free}

image

These old-fashion, oatmeal raisin cookies are so delicious! They’re rich and flavourful, packed full of raisins and crispy walnuts, thick, just sweet enough, and they have a crispy outer layer that gives way to a soft and chewy inside as you bite in.  And on top of that they’re gluten free and naturally sweetened with maple syrup and raisins.

These cookies are a great breakfast to grab and go or a perfect snack dipped in a glass of almond milk, coffee, or tea.
