Serves: 16
Ingredients
  • ½ cup (64g) Flora Freedom Walnut Spread (or sub other butter)
  • ½ cup (100g) white sugar*
  • ⅓ cup (73g) coconut sugar (sub any brown sugar)
  • ½ cup (125g) peanut butter (I prefer crunchy in this recipe)
  • tsp vanilla paste
  • 1 flax egg* (or sub alternative egg replacer or egg)
  • 1 cup (128g) plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda or 2.5 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup (43g) rolled oats
  • 1 cup (175g) chocolate chips of your choice* (or sub raisins or nuts)
Instructions
  1. If you're using flax egg prepare that first so it has time to thicken (mix 1tbsp ground flax seeds with 2.5 tbsp. water and leave for about 10 mins)
  2. Preheat oven to 175C / 350F
  3. Cream together the 'butter' and sugar until smooth
  4. Next add the peanut butter, vanilla and 'egg' and mix well
  5. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda/powder and salt
  6. Add these to the wet ingredients and stir briefly
  7. Add the oats and chocolate chips and distribute evenly
  8. Line baking trays with lightly oiled paper
  9. Use an ice cream scoop to add the mix to the pan (leave a little room between each for spreading)
  10. Cook for 12 minutes or until golden
  11. Remove from the oven, leave to cool for a few minutes on the tray and then transfer to a rack to cool
  12. Or enjoy them hot with your favourite ice cream!
Notes
* If you prefer you could use all coconut sugar for this recipe - the texture may just
alter slightly.

* To make a flax egg take 1 tbsp. ground flax seeds and add 2.5 tbsp. of water. Stir and leave to rest until thickened - approx 10 mins.

* You can find dairy-free white chocolate alternatives online.

* You might need to cook these in batches. Leftover mix could be kept in the fridge for a couple of days or frozen in cookie portions for another day.
