Breakfast Oat Coconut Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups oats
  • 1/2 assorted nuts and seeds ( sunflower, pumpkin , linseeds, walnuts, almonds..)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt or Maldon salt
  • A pinch of ground black pepper
  • 6 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 cup coconut sugar (organic brown sugar works too)
  • 2 eggs (substitute 2 tablespoon chia or flax seeds in 6 tablespoons water, allow to soak for a while)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut

Method:

Preheat oven to 175°C.

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients from the oats till the black pepper.

In another bowl and using a hand mixer/ blender, beat together the oil, sugar, eggs ( or substitute ) and vanilla until fluffy and smooth. Slowly beat in the oat mixture. Lightly stir in the coconut.

Using a spoon or cookie scoop, drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart on baking sheets. Press each cookie down with a fork a bit. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. The cookies will seem a little soft, but do not over bake or they’ll get too crisp. Remove from oven and let cool on sheet for about 5 minutes or until they start to harden up a bit.

At this point you can transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
