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. They also stay crunchy the next day.  To me, that quality makes it a pretty good cookie.  

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 wholewheat flour

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, melted

¼ – ½ cup maple syrup

preparation 

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

2.  Combine the oats, flour, raisins/dates, walnuts, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and baking powder in a bowl.

3.  Mix the coconut oil and maple syrup together and add to the dry ingredients, then knead together with your hands or a spoon, until well combined.

4.  Shape into small balls and place on a baking sheet, press down with your finger or a fork.

5.  Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until golden.

Cool completely and enjoy!!
