Honey Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

You may have noticed that we have been trying to share some healthier recipes . . . not only do we get requests for healthier dishes all the time, but we also put together a weekly Healthy Menu Plan that is family-friendly and picky eater approved!

Ever since we started the 2 Month Healthy Challenge with our little family, we have tried to find ways to cut refined sugar out of our diets. I love to use honey in baked goods and I loved how this recipe turned out!

Honey does bake faster than sugar, so that is why the temperature is a little bit lower with these cookies than you would usually find with other recipes. If your family doesn’t like raisins, you could swap in nuts, chocolate chips, dried cranberries – basically anything goes!

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 7/8 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons molasses
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 320 degrees F. Lightly spray cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray or use a baking liner. Set sheet aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda. Add in butter, oil, eggs, honey, molasses, vanilla, and milk and stir until all combined.
  3. Fold in oats and raisins.
  4. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls (these cookies work best if they are a little bit bigger . . . I found that if they are smaller, they burn easily) onto prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cookies are slightly golden. Keep in mind that honey bakes faster than sugar, which is why you cook these at a lower temperature that most cookies. Be sure to not overcook them or they will be crispy (unless you like cookies that way!).
