Oh La Lavender Oatmeal Cookies by Dahlia Mayerson

My post tonight is about these light, crispy, warm, floral cookies. They’re my take on a classic. Oatmeal raisin cookies sprinkled and infused with lavender. It’s been FREEZING in the city lately. And these cookies fooled me into thinking it was Spring.

La Lavender Oatmeal Cookies by Dahlia Mayerson

Here is what you’ll need:

2 Cups of Flour (Almond or Oat recommended)
3/4 Cup Oatmeal
2 Tablespoon Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Cup Sugar of Choice
1/2 Cup Maple Syrup
2 Tablespoons Vanilla Extract
1 Cup Raisins of Choice
2 Tablespoons of Lavender

What you do:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, oatmeal, cinnamon, baking soda, and 1 of the tablespoons of lavender. Stir until well mixed, and the lavender is dispersed into the flour. This adds a nice scent to the cookie and flavor…duh.

In a small bowl, mix together the sugar, syrup, and vanilla extract.

Add the small wet bowl mix into the large dry bowl mix. Combine.

Add in the raisins.


Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and in tablespoon sized dollops, about 2 inches apart, drop the dough.

Lightly press down so the cookies are a bit flat, and sprinkle over the tops of the cookies 1/2 the remaining tablespoon.

Bake for about 12-15 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your cookies.

Let cool.

Sprinkle cooled cookies with remaining 1/2 tablespoon of lavender if you like fresh lavender that much.

These cookies are light, crunchy, crispy, tasty and unique. They are pretty to wrap up and tie with a bow as a gift. They are delightful served with tea. Make them for mom!
