Oaty Raisin Cookies

These delicious cookies are fluffy, delicious and vegan! They are refined sugar free and free from any nasties and they taste amazing! They’re so quick and easy to make and they taste better than shop bought cookies in my opinion. Give them a go!

  1. These look a great, and they are now on my to-do list for sure! What if you skip the coconut sugar? Do you think the dates and raisins would provide enough sweetness?
