Chocolate Oat Cookies


It was pointed out to me by our expert nutritionist that cocoa has many health benefits! So I thought that gave me the perfect excuse to play around with a cocoa rich cookie recipe! The first batch I made were devoured swiftly, as these cookies they have a nice “brownie” texture to them.  

Makes: 16

Cooking time: 7 minutes 


125g (1 and 1/3 cups) coconut oil (for vegan alternative)

Plus a a little extra for greasing the baking tray.

100g (1/2 cup) coconut sugar 200ml (1 cup) water

1 free range egg

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

6 tablespoons (35g/cups) cacao or coca powder

50g (1/2 cups) porridge oats (I use gluten free oats)

65g (1/2 cup) flour (I used gluten free)

1 teaspoon baking powder


  • Preheat the oven 180°C or 350°F
  • Beat the coconut oil and coconut sugar together.
  • Then beat in the egg and add the vanilla extract.
  • Finally stir in oats, flour and baking powder.
  • Take out a tablespoonful of the mixture at a time and place onto a lightly greased baking tray.
  • Cook for 7 minutes until golden brown.
