I absolutely love oats, they are a true cupboard staple in our home. I have oats everyday either in porridge or as muesli, oat bars, flap jacks or cookies. I also add oats to smoothies, cakes and crumbles. The best part is that they are very nutritious and great for your gut since they are loaded with vitamins, minerals & antioxidant plant compounds.

To satisfy my oat craving, I baked these chunky chip oat cookies. They contain wonderful mix of spices which takes them to the next level. And with total 20min cooking time, you really can’t go wrong with these.

To bake 9 cookies you’ll need:

2 cups of oats

2 tbsp coconut oil – melted

4 tbsp coconut sugar

4 tbsp water

1 tsp baking powder

6 cloves – crushed using pestle & mortar

Couple shakes of cinnamon, cardamon & nutmeg

1 bar of dark chocolate

Pre-heat the oven to 160C.

Mix together all ingredients except chocolate until a good consistency dough forms. Add more water if needed. If you’re using food processor you won’t need more water.

Crush the chocolate bar into small chunks and add to the dough. Mix everything and make cookie like shapes. Bake for 15min and enjoy!
