These apple, oat, and raisin cookies are not new to my blog, but the pictures are! So I am hoping they now look more appealing!
These cookies were originally inspired by a recipe I tried by Marisa Moore. Her recipe was fabulous. But I wanted to try out some other options. As I love having healthy cookie recipes up my sleeve.
Oat and raisin is a traditional cookie flavour, one I’ve always loved, and I must confess to being a peanut butter lover so I quite like the combo of these 4 ingredients (Apple, Oat, Peanutbutter, and Raisin) cookies.

- ½ Cup apple sauce / apple puree (unsweetened)
- ½ Cup Peanut butter
- 1 Cup Rolled Oats
- ¼ Cup Raisins
- ¼ Cup pumpkin seeds (optional)
- Watch the quick recipe video before you get started, scroll up a little to find it
- Check the notes at the bottom of the recipe for little bits of extra info and help
- Whizz the apple puree and peanut butter together. I used a bar stick mixer, but a food processor would be fine
- Stir in the oats, sultanas, and pumpkin seeds. the batter will be quite sticky
- Drop spoonfuls onto a baking paper lined tray (i smoothed mine off with the back of my spoon to make a cookie type shape)
- Bake at 180 degrees celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 - 20 mins (check after 15 minutes), you are looking for the base to go a golden brown
- Cool on a cooling rack
My kids eat these cookies without any additional sweeteners/sugar. They are not overly sweet and the sweetness will depend a little on the apple variety you have used. If your children do not find them sweet enough try adding 1 Tbsp of honey (over 1yrs) or maple syrup
To make these peanut free substitute peanut butter for almond butter, for a nut-free alternative tahini will work,
This recipe is wheat free but not gluten free if traditional oats are used
