This recipe was sent to me by my friend, Kristin in one of those wonderful, colourful letters that she surprises me with.  What I like most about these biscuits is that they are simple and healthy, but most importantly, taste so good.

cinnamon & oat cookies with coconut oil

The original recipe recommended ¼ – ½ cup of maple syrup, so I went for a ⅓ cup but found them too sweet, so next time I would try a ¼ cup.  I added 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds, which was a very successful addition.  They also stay crunchy the next day.  To me, that quality makes it a pretty good biscuit.  If you find these cookies too sticky to shape, wash your hands and keep them slightly wet.

ingredients :

1½ cups rolled (flaked) oats

½ cup whole wheat flour

¼ – ½ cup maple syrup

cup raisins/dates (finely chopped)

cup finely chopped walnuts

1½ tsp cinnamon powder

1½ tsp ginger powder

½ tsp fresh nutmeg

½ tsp baking powder

½ cup coconut oil

preparation :

Preheat the oven to 350 F/180 C.  Line a baking tray with baking paper.

If the coconut oil has solidified, place the bottle in a bowl of boiling hot water until it comes in liquid form.

Combine the oats, flour, raisins/dates, walnuts, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and baking powder in a bowl.  Mix the coconut oil and maple syrup together and add to the dry ingredients.  Knead together with your hands or a spoon, until well combined.

Shape into small balls.  Place on a baking sheet and press down with your finger or a fork.  Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until golden. Cool completely and enjoy!!
