Servings 28 cookies


  • Baking sheet
  • 2 Mixing bowls
  • Fork
  • Cooling rack


  • 1 cup butter (softened)
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup spelt flour
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp. flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Grease a baking sheet with butter or oil (if you have a stone baking sheet you can skip this step).
  • In a medium mixing bowl, smash butter with a fork. Add sugar and mix well.
  • Crack eggs into the center of the butter and sugar. Add vanilla and use your fork to smash and mix until everything is well combined.
  • In a separate bowl add the flour, oats, chia and flax seeds, baking soda, and baking powder. Stir and create a small well in the center of the mixture.
  • Pour your wet ingredients into the well and mix thoroughly.
  • Stir in raisins and chocolate chips.
  • Scoop about a tablespoon of batter into your hands and roll into a ball. Place balls on a baking sheet and space them about 1-inch apart. You should be able to fit about 20 balls on a standard baking sheet.
  • Use a fork to gently flatten each ball. Dip your fork in a cup of water if your batter starts sticking.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes. Makes about 28 cookies.
  • Let cool and store in an airtight container. My family prefers to eat these frozen!
