Heres the recipe for :
SPICED OATMEAL BISCUITS
60g coconut palm sugar
60g coconut oil
50g rolled porridge oats or coarse oatmeal
2 tsp mixed spice
60g white of brown spelt flour, sifted
half a tsp baking pwder
Pinch of sea salt
half a tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/350F/Gas mark 4 and line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.
Place the coconut sugar and oil into a bowl and beat with a wooden spoon ntill very well incorporated and creamy.
If using porridge oats, place them in a bowl or an food processor and blitz for a few scounds untill the yhave coarce oatmeal texture. Add the ground oats or oatmeal to a bowl and combine with mixed spice, flour, baking powder and salt.
Add the four mixture to the sugar and coconut oil mixture and combine. Once everything is incorporated , drizzle over the vanilla extract and use your hands to form an ball. It may seem dry at first, but leep compressing the dough with your hands until it all comes together, add 1 or 2 drops of water and continue kneading.
TIP Dont be tempted to add water too early.
Take a heaped teaspoon of dough and roll into a ball. Place in baking tray and flatten out gently into neat round biscuit shape.
TIP Leave a 2-3 cm gap between each biscuit.
Place both trays into the oven for 8-9 minutes untill there a shade darker and rough textured on top.
TIP Keep an eye on them as they burn easy.
Leave to cool down for 10 minutes and transfer to a wire rack, but they will become crunchy as they cool.
TIP They will be soft at first - dont panic.
