Recipe type: Cookies
Serves: 24 - 26 cookies
Ingredients
  • 1.5 cups oats
  • 1.5 cups wholewheat flour (or spelt flour)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ cup coconut oil, melted
  • ¾ cup coconut sugar (or light brown)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • juice of ½ orange
  • grated zest of 1 orange (organic, untreated)
  • 1 cup dark chocolate, chopped
  • Note: 1 cup = 250 ml
Preparation
  1. Preheat oven to 180 C (356 F). Prepare large baking tray and line it with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine oats, flour, baking soda and salt and stir well.
  3. In another mixing bowl whisk coconut oil and sugar. Add egg and vanilla and whisk until combined. Add cinnamon, orange juice and orange zest and stir well.
  4. Combine the two mixtures by adding the wet mixture into the oats-flour one.
  5. Stir well and add chopped dark chocolate.
  6. Make little dough balls (1 tbsp per ball) and bake on 180 C (356 F) for about 10 min.
  7. Leave enough space between the cookies on the tray as they will spread when in the oven. I baked 12 cookies in the first batch and than again 12 in another batch.
  8. Leave them to cool entirely before storing in the airtight container.
  9. Note: Cookies will still be very soft when you remove them from the oven but they will harden as they cool down.
