I'm in India now, the weather is amazing, and my grandparents LOVED the cookies. It's always nice to put a smile on someone's face :) Shh... Don't tell them, but I may have snuck a cookie or few for myself as well!
Makes approximately 25 cookies
1 1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup baby oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt7/8 cup unrefined sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1 tbsp honey
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped and toasted
Preheat the oven to 170 C. Line a cookie tray with baking paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, stir together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt and oats.
In a separate medium bowl, beat together the coconut oil and sugar. Whisk in the egg. Add the honey and vanilla and whisk again.
Create a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Mix until just combined (the dough will be relatively dry and crumbly.
Finally, fold in the chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.
Roll the dough into loose balls, place on the cookie sheet and flatten slightly.
Bake for 12-17 minutes or until beautifully golden brown and slightly crisp to the touch (they will harden more as they cool). Enjoy!
