Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with Kefir Glaze

Our recipe for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with Kefir Glaze is a crowd-pleasing classic. We love them paired with a creamy glass of plain kefir for a comforting treat!

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp + 1 Tbsp Lifeway Plain Low Fat Kefir
  • 1 cup coconut oil or unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole-wheat flour
  • 2 cups old-fashion rolled oats
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and set aside a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a well seasoned baking stone.
  2. Cream together coconut oil/butter and sugar. Add the honey and mix well.
  3. Next, add the eggs, vanilla, and one tablespoon of kefir and stir until uniform.
  4. In a separate bowl, sift the flours, oats, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. Gradually add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until combined. Fold in the raisins.
  5. While cookies bake, combine powdered sugar and the remaining three tablespoons of kefir in a small bowl. Stir the two together until no lumps remain.
  6. When the cookies are finished cooking, remove them from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack. Cool for five minute then drizzle kefir glaze over warm cookies.
  7. Enjoy with a big glass of Lifeway Kefir!
