Here is the recipe for the cookies that everyone so enjoyed at ‘A Recipe For Energised Eating’ at Wellbeing in the City last week.

Oat, Raisin & Almond Cookies

1 cup oats

tiny pinch Sea salt

Half cup ground almonds

Handful raisins

Quarter cup flour

Quarter cup sunflower oil

4 tablespoons rice syrup

Handful flaked almonds

Sugar free jam – optional

Dry roast the oats in a pan for a few minutes.  Add a tiny pinch sea salt, almond essence and raisins.  Add a third cup boiling water and stir.  Now add the flour.  Combine the oil and rice syrup and add to the mixture.  Add the almond flakes.  Prepare an oiled cooking tray and heat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.  Ease spoonfuls of the mixture onto the cookie tray.  Make a dent in the top of each cookie using your thumb print and top with sugar free jam.  Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes until the cookies begin to go golden.  Enjoy!
