There are a couple of occasions when my oil free mantra goes out the window – garlicky oil drizzled on homemade pizza – or worse the temptation of a hot chip.
Yes I’m imperfectly perfect.
So these cookies are one of the few recipes in these pages that contain coconut oil.
1. Prepare your chia ‘egg’ by soaking the chia in water, stir and sit for 10 minutes.
2. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt & coconut in a large bowl.
3 Soften the oil and mix in the sugar. Add the vanilla essence & chia egg.
4. Mix well.
5. Work the mixture with your hands if necessary. Make balls & flatten with a fork.
6. Bake for 9-12 minutes at 180.
PS those brown bits in the photograph are imperfectly stirred lumps of molasses sugar which come out all gooey + delicious + perfect :)
