Crunchy Oats & Nuts Cookies

Thursday, 20 July 2017






This is by far my favourite simple recipe for cookies that I would recommend you try.  It is healthy, crunchy and just addictively delicious. Everyone in my family love it.  You can substitute the nuts in the recipe with another nut though I think almonds work best.

Yields:  Approx. 40 cookies


INGREDIENTS:

200g - 230g organic coconut oil
3 tbsp honey

80g organic brown sugar
200g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 stp salt
130g rolled oats
100g almond flakes (toasted, use hand to crush into smaller pieces)
120g raisins or cranberry
2 tbsp chia seeds


METHOD:

1.  Move the oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 180 C. Line 2 baking trays with baking papers and set aside.

2.  In a big mixing bowl, shift in the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.   Then whisk together the flour mixture with sugar, rolled oats, raisins, almond flakes and chia seeds.

3.  Gradually stir in the coconut oil and honey to flour mixture until well-combined.

4.  Roll the dough into small balls. Place the cookies about 1 inches apart on the lined baking tray.

5.  Using 2 fingers, lightly press down on each cookie dough ball to flatten it.

6.  Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until the cookies just start turning golden brown.

7.  Let cookies cool on a wire rack completely before storing in the air tight container. They will crisp up as they cool
