INGREDIENTS

200g organic rolled oats
50g freshly grated coconut
60g cold pressed coconut oil or avocado oil
60g spinneysFOOD Organic Maple Syrup
1 spinneysFOOD Organic Free Range Egg
100g block good quality 70% dark chocolate
50g dry cherries, chopped

METHOD

  • 1

    Preheat your oven to 150 C.

  • 2

    Combine oats, coconut, oil, maple syrup and egg into a mixing bowl.

  • 3

    Mix through with your hands for a few minutes – squishing the ingredients together until the cookie dough starts to come together. I often like to rest the mixture for 5 minutes after mixing – so the oats soften a little more and hold together when squished.

  • 4

    Chop up the chocolate with a large knife and add to the oats and mix through.

  • 5

    Form mixture into 12 cookies... I love using a small ice cream scoop for this – it’s so easy that way.

  • 6

    Place onto a lined baking tray and flatten slightly. 7 Bake for approx 15 minutes or until golden. Check half way through the cooking... they are delicate so you need to watch them.

  • 7

    Remove from the oven and cool completely.
