Chewy and studded with sweet little raisins, these cookies are an old-fashioned favorite. However this recipe updates the classic with spices that not 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.

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.

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
Thank you for letting me know. I will fix it.
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!
These cookies are delicious!
Thank you so much for the kind words.
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.
easy to follow and great tasting recipe.
Thank you for the kind words!
