Recipe Post 2017 N0.8-Apricot Oatmeal Cookies

Hello world!

Yes, I simply couldn't get enough of baking with apricots so I added an extra week especially for it. Not only is this recipe super healthy but tastes INSANE and can last in an airtight container for up to an week! 

To have a go at making these delectable,oaty cookies, you'll need:

100g of instant oats

90g of wholewheat flour

1 1/tsp of baking powder

1/2tsp  of ground cinnamon

1/8(if there is a such measurement) of salt

28g of coconut oil

1 large egg, at room temp.

1 tsp of vanilla extract

120ml of honey

40g of dried apricots

Method:

Like always, pre-heat the oven to 160C. Line a baking tray with baking parchment/baking paper.

Within a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the oats, flour,baking powder, cinnamon and salt.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the coconut oil,egg and vanilla. Stir in the honey until thoroughly incorporated.

Add the flour mixture to the honey mix,stirring until just combined. Eventually, fold in the apricots. 

Chill the dough for around 30 minutes in a fridge.  Take out and then drop the cookie dough into 15 rounded scoops on your prepped baking sheet. 

Bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes,cooling for roughly 15 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. And Volia!

  3. These look so yummy! I'll have to swap out the honey for agave so it's all vegan for me but I cannot wait to try x
