Summer Fruit Baked Into a Cookie

My parents have 6 peach trees that produce tons of peaches each summer, but they also grow raspberries and blackberries. Lucky us! They do all the hard work of growing, pruning and harvesting these fruits and we just reap the fresh rewards.

Last time my parents visited us, they brought the most beautiful juicy tart raspberries for us to enjoy. We snacked and snacked and snacked. And then when everyone turned their backs, I stirred some into these chewy oatmeal cookies.

Super easy to make with simple ingredients you might already have on hand and they store great for days, if they last that long!

The Healthier Side of Decadent

Oh the combo of fresh raspberries and dark chocolate…insert hearts, hearts and more hearts! LOVE! There’s just something about the sweet fruity tartness of fresh raspberries combined with the rich bitterness of dark chocolate. Who says this decadent combo can’t be enjoyed in a slightly healthier way?

Nobody complained once they tasted these amazing dairy free cookies for themselves. I intended them to be breakfast cookies, but honestly, we eat them all the time. They definitely make for a great start to the day though!

They’re hearty and chewy with plenty of sweetness from those berries and a little honey while the almond butter and melty dark chocolate balance it all out. Warning: it’s really hard to eat just one!

A Note About Gluten-Free Baking

If you want the cookies to be gluten free, be sure to use gluten-free oats. Oats are naturally gluten-free. But processing in a plant that also processes wheat, rye or barley products can contaminate the oats. Be sure to check the label!

What Do I Need to Make Flourless Dark Chocolate Raspberry Oatmeal Cookies

Quick Tip: Substitutions

  • Almond Butter: Feel free to substitute the almond butter for peanut butter or any other nut butter. It will impact the flavor (peanut butter has a stronger flavor than almond butter), but will still be delicious!
  • Honey: Use pure maple syrup as a 1 for 1 substitute for honey. Other ingredients would probably need to be adjust since maple syrup has more liquid than honey.
  • Fresh raspberries: Frozen raspberries will work well, too. Do not allow to defrost or they will get mushy. Mix them in while frozen.

How to Make Flourless Dark Chocolate Raspberry Oatmeal Cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the almond butter, honey and vanilla until smooth.
  • Add the oats, flaxseed, baking soda, and salt and stir until a thick mixture forms.

  • Gently stir in the chocolate chips and raspberries until well distributed throughout and the dough moistens a little from the raspberries.
  • Form 2 tablespoons of dough into a ball and place a few inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Slightly flatten each cookie with the palm of your hand. If the dough is too sticky, spray your hands with non-stick cooking spray or use a cookie scoop.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes on baking sheets before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

  1. 3 cups of oatmeal, as in the meal created by cooking oats with 2x as much water, or 3 cups of dry uncooked oats?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Elizabeth! I’m so glad you checked. It’s 3 cups old-fashioned oats as in the dry oats before you cook them into oatmeal. I just updated the recipe to clarify. I hope you get to try them soon. Enjoy!

    1. Hi Puja! Yes, they freeze great! Just let them cool completely and then place them in a freezer-safe container or baggie to store in the freezer for up to 2 months. Enjoy!

    1. Hi Nat! I don’t provide nutritional information at this time because everyone uses different brands of ingredients which often have differing nutritional values. I would recommend plugging the ingredients you used into a free online nutrition calculator like: http://www.myfitnesspal.com/recipe/calculator Hope this helps. Enjoy!

  2. I was at first reluctant to spray my hands with cooking spray, but I needed to do something and that was perfect. It’s the second try for me and they were perfect. I didn’t use fancy honey from the farm market. I went with store bought in the little plastic bear jar and it worked much better making a smooth batter. I used mini chocolate chips because they seem to spread out better and I quartered fresh cherries. The result was better than I could have imagined. Thank you.

  3. I was also wondering about substituting honey with maple syrup. Did they turn out okay and was also wondering if anyone has used nutritional yeast instead of the Brewers?

  4. This happened to me too. After reading the comments and realizing my almond butter had been dry at the bottom of the jar, I added some melted coconut oil and kept mixing! They’re still a bit crumbly, but it helped make them more cookie like and less granola-y. Next time I’ll try it with fresh almond butter!

  5. […] Flourless Dark Chocolate Raspberry Almond Butter Oatmeal Cookies from thebakermama.com uses almond butter. I repeat. This recipe uses almond butter. Nuff said. […]

  6. I tried to make these. I followed the recipe exactly & the dough was a crumbly granola that, even with the addition of water, did not hold together as cookies. Decided to make them into bars instead but they would not hold together as bars when cut either. There is no way the recipe makes cookies that look like the photos; the mixture lacks something to bind it together.

    1. Hi Rowena! So sorry to hear they didn’t turn out like they are supposed to. Did you stir the raspberries well into the dough? The moisture from the raspberries throughout the dough is key to making it moist enough to bind together. Or it might be something with the almond butter being too dry. Do you recall the almond butter you used being dried out?

    2. I had same result as Rowena…Had to pack the dough down with measuring spoon but still crumbly & came out all burnt. I thought it was due to not using parchment paper instead greased the pan with vegan butter. It appeared the cookie melted & then burned.

      1. Hi Barbara! Did you use vegan butter instead of almond butter. If so, I think that would definitely throw off the texture of the cookies as the nut butter is key to binding the oats and other ingredients together. Did you follow all of the other ingredients and instructions exactly. If so, I’m thinking the vegan butter is not a great substitute in this recipe as the cookie dough should be moist enough to bind together and bake into a chewy cookie.

  7. […] These wonderful flourless dark chocolate raspberry oatmeal cookies. […]

      1. Hi! Oh my goodness. That’s so strange. Did you happen to use sunflower butter? Apparently, sunflower butter reacts with the baking soda causing baked goods to turn green. Glad to hear they tasted good though! 😉

  8. Awsome, just awsome! I love that they are full of flavor…. so so delicious and at the same time healthy and really good for you! :)))
    Thanks and have a nice day! (:

  9. OMG, these have my mouth crying for cookies. Okay, maybe that’s just drool. But still, these look absolutely INCREDIBLE!

    1. Hi Lilly! I haven’t tried it, but I think it would work great and compliment the other flavors nicely. Let me know if you try it and how they turn out. Enjoy!
