Choc Chip Cookies
1 1/2 cup rolled oats (or almond meal)
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup dark choc chips
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup honey or pure maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
Place the rolled oats and coconut into your food processor and blend into a flour consistency.
Blend through the rest of the ingredients (excluding the choc chips) on a low speed until combined approx 30 seconds.
Mix through the choc chips and let mixture sit to fluff up and thicken.
Pre heat the oven to 180’C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
Once oven has pre heated the cookies will be ready to roll, place on the tray and squash down softly.
Bake for 12-15 mins, they will turn golden brown. Allow them to cool completely before touching or they will not resemble cookies. They will become real crunchy, chewy and are awfully delicious.
You can use raw chocolate or a seriously dark, dark choc and just cut it into chunks for the recipe. You can also just use almond meal instead of oats and throw in a tablespoon of nut butter but obviously neither of those ideas are ok for nut free lunch boxes!
