Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

100g Rolled Oats

70g Plain Flour

1 tbsp Chia Seeds

2 tsp Cinnamon

½ tsp Ground Nutmeg

Pinch of Sea Salt

Wet Ingredients

80g Melted Coconut Oil

65ml Maple Syrup

65ml Milk of Choice

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 Apple, Washed and Finely Diced

Method

Step 1

Preheat an oven to 170oc and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Step 2

Add all the dry ingredients to a bowl and mix until well combined.

Step 3

Combine all the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and mix.

Step 4

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and combine.

Step 5

Leave the mixture for 20 minutes to allow the chia seeds to soak up some of the moisture and form a cookie batter.

Step 6

After 20 minutes, using wet hands or an ice cream scoop, create 6 even sized balls on the baking tray and flatten into disc shapes with the palm of your hand, smoothing around the edges with your fingers.

Step 7

Place in the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. The cookies will harden as they cool but should still be soft and chewy.
