Delicious and nutritious cookies, great for breakfast, as a snack or to consume after a work out as an energy bar.
Servings 70 cookies
- 10 cups oats
- 2 1/2 cups dates or apricots
- 2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour (or spelt)
- 2 1/4 cups olive oil
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 1 1/2 cups water (or more, if texture is too dry)
- 1 1/2 cups grated coconut
- 1 1/4 cups cacao powder
- 1 cup sesame seeds
- 5 tbsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tbsp ground ginger
- 2 tsp baking powder
Preheat the oven to 180-200ºC, upper and lower hear (not grill, not fan).
In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients until well combined.
In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients (water and oil) and add them to the large bowl. Mix well with a fork or spatula.
Using your hands, take a small ball of dough and shape it into your favourite cookie shape. Add them to a baking tray and bake for about 25 mins. Watch out to ensure they don’t overcook or burn!
Once baked, let them sit to cool down for 20 mins.
Notes: The ingredient units are in “cups”, tablespoons (tbsp) and teaspoons (tsp). If you don’t have measurement cups at home, you could use a regular cup that you might have. If you preferred to be precise with the ingredient amounts, you could also use a cups-to-grams converter.
