Oat, Chia & Almond Cookies

Difficulty: Easy

Makes 20

Let’s face it – a cookie is never going to be guilt free but as far as cookies go, these guys aren’t so bad. They have a macaroon-y vibe going on which makes them super light plus they’re packed full of chia goodness so you know they’re pretty special. They’re gluten and soy free too, making them a great lunchbox snack for big and little kids alike.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 1 cup gluten free oats
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 cup agave syrup or coconut syrup

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C  and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the almond meal, gluten free oats, chia seeds, coconut, baking powder and baking soda.
  3. Pour in the melted coconut oil and agave syrup and mix until well combined.
  4. Roll heaped tablespoons of the mixture into balls and place 2cm apart on a baking tray.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden. They will be super wobbly at this stage, don’t worry!
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on the tray before serving.
