Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder.
  • 3/4 cups regular plain flour.
  • 1 cup rolled oats.
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut.
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds.
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds.
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds.
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean powder.
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt.

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 small red apple, grated.
  • 125 g butter, melted.
  • 1/4 cup rice malt syrup.

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas Mark 4 and line a large baking tray with baking paper.

2. Combine all dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Then add in the apple, butter and rice malt syrup and fold through until well combined.

3. Roll tablespoons of the dough into balls, place onto the prepared baking trays and flatten down slightly, until the cookies are about 1cm thick. Place into the oven and bake for 15 minutes, until they are lightly brown - you don’t want to overcook them here, so we suggest checking your oven at 12 minutes.

4. Once cooked, remove from the oven and cool on a wire tray. Serve.
