Hello Sprint Kitchen readers! This is my first guest blog and what better way to introduce myself than with COOKIES!! I know I’m not the only one who has those annoying, sweet cravings late at night or straight after a meal and it’s so difficult to not give in. But fear not, there are options to help curb that craving, give these healthy oat cookies a go.
- 100g oats
- 90g wholemeal flour – I use one with added seeds
- 1.5 tsp baking powder
- 1.5 tsp cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 3 tsp honey
- 40g raisins or cocoa nibs if you’re feeling extra sweet!
- Mix together the oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
- Then in a separate bowl melt the coconut oil slightly so it starts to soften and mix in the vanilla extract then the egg, and lastly stirring in the honey.
- Next, combine both mixtures and gentle fold in the raisins or cocoa nibs.
- Chill the dough in the fridge for around 20-30 mins (insert quick HIIT workout here!).
- Then line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and form 12 or so cookie shapes and flatten slightly.
- Bake in a pre-heated oven at 150° and then… enjoy.
