Cannabis Oatmeal Cookies with Raisins Recipe 

By  Cheri Sicard

 March 15, 2022

Chewy and studded with sweet little raisins, these cookies are an old-fashioned favorite. However this recipe updates the classic with spices that not only add culinary interest, they help mask the flavor of cannabis that most of most of us are trying to avoid.

You can use either golden raisins or regular brown raisins in this recipe.  Or if you don't like raisins at all, skip them and make Oatmeal Spice Cannabis Cookies.

Use Cannabutter to Medicate Cannabis Oatmeal Cookies

I use cannabutter to infuse these spicy cannabis oatmeal cookies as I think it provides the best flavor and texture.  However, infused coconut oil is a good vegan substitute.

Cannabis Cookies Recipes

Freezer Friendly Cannabis Oatmeal Cookies

One of the things I like best about cannabis cookie recipes is that most of them freeze well.  This allows you to make fresh baked cookie edibles any time you like.  

Freezing unbaked cannabis cookies can also help with portion control.  You're less apt to go back for seconds if you have bake a new batch.

To freeze Spicy Oatmeal Cannabis Cookies, form unbaked dough into cookies and place on a baking sheet. Freeze before transferring cookies to a freezer storage bag or container.

When you want edibles, bake the frozen cookies on a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet at 375 degrees F for about 18 minutes or until lightly browned.

A Note on the Dosage for Cannabis Oatmeal Cookies

Each the cannabis oatmeal cookies in this recipe will have about 25mg THC IF you made your marijuana butter from average cannabis (10% THC) and used 1/2 ounce of marijuana to make 1 cup cannabis infused butter. 

To learn how to adjust the dosage for your personal needs and to reflect the strength of the marijuana you are cooking with and the amounts you used to make your cannabutter,   take my FREE 10 minute online Dosing Class that will teach you how to do it.  Even better, use my handy dosage calculator tools that do all the math for you (see below).

    Just made the Oatmeal/Raisin cookies. Please check your recipes as the recipe you provided didn’t mention how much salt, yet it’s mentioned in the dry ingredients when you combine them. Also, when you combine the butter (canna and regular) with the sugars, the step didn’t say to beat the canna butter AND the regular butter with the sugar. Just can be a little confusing to someone baking edibles for the first time. I added 1/2 tsp. of salt anyhow. They do taste very yummy

    Seems like a little too much butter. Cookies spread much more than the 2” space it said to leave between them and the parchment was very greasy. I’ll cut back next time because a cup seems to be too much. Other than that they’re delicious!

    • I figured out the same thing…. My cookies were too crumbly from too much butter and too flattened out. I asked Cheri to correct it in my comment above, but I see the 2nd 1/2 c. of butter is still in it.

  • I don’t see why the added step of using cannabutter is required. It’s much simpler to use regular butter and then mix in ground up, dried bud. You’re also not going to be decarboxylating the THC twice since the cannabutter prep also requires heating.

    • You could CHOOSE to do this, but the cookie will suffer flavor wise. You also DO want to decarb, lab tests show more potency, plus the recipes does not bake long enough to fully decarb, so even if you were to choose to stir in buds to your cookies, you definitely WOULD want to decarb them first for maximum potency. It is not decarbing “twice” it is decarbing in order to extract maximum potential potency. Same with making cannabutter, it does not get to a high enough temp for maximum decarboxylation which is why I recommend doing the extra step.

      I have the same issue with these cookies that I just made. I have wondered about why it needs another 1/2 c. of regular butter. Mine spread out way too much to to the point they were FLAT. Next time, I’ll use maybe an extra 1/4 c. butter

    I made these for a friend’s bday, I used light brown sugar, and one cup of canna coconut oil, and I skipped nutmeg because I was out, and they turned out so good! The bottom and edges are slightly crispy from the oil and the cookie itself is soft and delicious. They turned out perfect!

    My cookies look nothing like the picture, they spread A LOT and look more like little pancakes I followed the directions exactly and I thought 1 cup of four didn’t sound like enough. They taste good but are more like lace cookies and I pulled them out about 5 minutes sooner than listed and they still turned out very brown.
