Frequently Asked Questions
To store leftover chocolate chip oatmeal raisin cookies: Let cookies cool completely. Then, place them in an airtight container, separating layers with parchment paper. Store the cookies at room temperature for up to 5-7 days for best freshness.
Absolutely! To Freeze: Allow cookies to cool completely. Place them in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze until solid. Transfer frozen cookies to airtight freezer bags or containers, separating layers with parchment paper. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
To Reheat the Cookies In the Oven:
Preheat your oven to 300°F (150°C). Place frozen cookies on a baking sheet. Warm in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until heated through. They'll be almost as good as fresh-baked!
To Reheat the Cookies In the Microwave:
Place your cookies on a microwave-safe plate. Heat on a medium setting for about 10-20 seconds. Be cautious not to overheat as the chocolate chips can become scorching hot. Let them sit for a moment to even out the heat and enjoy!
Note: Microwaving might make the cookies a bit softer. If you had a crispy edge, this method will soften it.

Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies Instructions
- Preheat the oven to 375
- Prepare the flax eggs by mixing 2 tablespoon of flax seed meal with 4 tablespoon of hot water. Set aside until a thick gel forms. If using an egg, skip this step.
- In a large bowl, mix the melted vegan butter, flax mixture, sugars, maple syrup, almond milk, vanilla, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt together. Then, add the flour and oats and mix until a thick dough forms. Fold in the raisins, chocolate chips, and walnuts (if using).
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and use a tablespoon to scoop out the batter. Use your hands to carefully form each scoop of dough into a round mound and then gently press down with your fingers to create a cookie shape. They should be about ½ inch thick. You will have about 24 cookies.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they lift easily off of the parchment paper and are lightly golden around the edges. Serve warm with a glass of oat milk and enjoy!
