Baking has been quite challenging lately. When you can’t have dairy OR soy, your options become pretty limited. It’s in EVERYTHING. Seriously! 😩 I’ve been trying to do my best to make naturally dairy-free and soy-free recipes, but I’ve also been testing some new(ish) ones like these cookies. I developed the base for this recipe a few years ago when I did this same diet with our oldest son who thankfully outgrew his sensitivities.

These cookies are soft, chewy and full of shredded coconut and plump raisins. They have a subtle hint of cinnamon which in my opinion, makes them!

Before I eventually broke down and bought every kind of Enjoy Life chocolate known to man, I made these cookies. They were my saving grace those first few weeks. I’m always a sucker for oatmeal cookies, but add in coconut, raisins and cinnamon, well, you know, I was completely hooked. Still am.

What I love about these cookies is that they only require one “special” ingredient: coconut oil. You can use refined or unrefined, it just depends on how coconutty you want them. They only take a few minutes to make and they are loved by all.

These coconut oil oatmeal raisin cookies will have even the most die hard butter lovers swooning over them. I know, that’s a pretty bold statement. 😬
