Back with a divine and super easy cookie recipe for you all. This time Sesame Coconut and Oat with olive oil instead of butter so it’s really easy to pop altogether in a bowl. They’re prepped in about 4 minutes and in the oven for 14-16 minutes which is less than the time it takes to go to the shops and buy a more processed / refined variation – so… no excuses not to make them really!

Dairy Free : Vegetarian

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1 free range egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup spelt flour

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1/4 cup sesame seeds

Heat oven to 180C and line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper. Combine extra virgin olive oil, coconut sugar, egg, vanilla and baking powder in a bowl and whisk until creamy. Add spelt flour, shredded, oats and sesame seeds and mix to form the dough. Take tablespoon measures of the dough, roll and place on tray then press down lightly with fingers. Repeat with all remaining dough. Place in oven to bake for 14-16 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool completely on tray. Store in an airtight container up to 2 weeks.
