3 Ingredient Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I love a good grab-and-go snack—and these Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Snack Bites fit the bill! While these “cookies” aren’t a replacement for a true dessert when your sweet tooth is calling, these snack bites have enough natural sweetness to satisfy a craving for something sweet, while also being nourishing enough to give you some much-needed energy during an afternoon crash. 

These snack bites have just three ingredients—oats, banana, and raisins—and after a quick trip in the oven, they make a chewy, soft, tasty snack bite that is perfect for mornings when you need a quick breakfast or afternoons when you are craving something sweet! These snack cookies are gluten-free, vegan, and free from added sugar. You can keep them plain or dress them up with a drizzle of chocolate for a touch of decadence.

Are these snack bites crunchy or chewy?

Thanks to the moisture of the banana, these snack bite cookies are moist, chewy, and soft—similar to the texture of a cereal bar—with a strong banana flavor. 

What’s the best way to store these snack bites?

Keep these snack bite cookies in an airtight food storage container in your fridge for up to a week. To freeze, place them in a single layer on a parchment or silicone mat lined baking sheet and freeze solid. Then transfer to a freezer-safe food storage container or freezer bag for up to 6 months. Defrost by setting them out on the counter for about 20 minutes before enjoying.

What’s the best way to serve these snack bites?

We like to have them on hand to round out grab-and-go breakfasts or snacks. We like to pair them with other quick-and-easy snack items that bring some healthy fats and protein into our meals. These snack bites are great paired with:

  1. I just discovered this blog and I LOVE IT AND YOU. But, ahem…I digress. It turns out I just made very similar treats tonight, with a mashed banana, 1/2 cup rolled oats, and chocolate chips. Oh, and I added some cocoa powder because I felt like I needed to.

    I wish I had done raisins instead. I have a MEGA MEGA sweet tooth (I’d say with some firmness that I’m a refined sugar addict), but I found with chocolate chips it just…wasn’t quite right. Maybe I just needed bigger chips? But what I think is that I really needed these gigantic raisins instead. Raisins are my JAM!

    Anyway, thanks for your great blog. I feel like I know you, even though I don’t! I just spent an hour tootling around here instead of doing my work. 🙂 Anyway, back to the grind.

  2. Sorry but these were just BAD. They should not be called cookies, or edible food for that matter.
    Will try the almond cookies from a previous post this weekend, hoping they don’t disappoint as much.

  3. The chocolate drizzle on top makes it look so professional! I’m going to go ahead and files these under a snack food rather than dessert food so I can eat them al day long 🙂
