Makes 12 star cookies
225g Gluten free oats
1tsp Baking powder
3tbsp Cacao powder
1tbsp Ground flaxseed or gram flour
150ml Almond milk
100ml Rapeseed oil
2tbsp Agave nectar
Firstly preheat the fan oven to 180C.
Secondly weigh out the oats and pour them into a blender (I used the Vitamix) with the baking powder, cacao and flaxseed. Blend until you have a fine flour.
Now pour the flour into a bowl and add the raisins. Make a well in the middle of the flour. Measure out all the liquid ingredients into a jug. Now pour some of the liquid mixture into the well. Mix together until it forms a sticky cookie dough. Add the remaining liquid mixture to mix in any flour sticking to the sides of the bowl.
Next put a piece of baking paper on a baking tray. Place an 8.5cm star-shaped cookie cutter onto the baking paper. Next scoop out the dough using a dessert spoon and drop a portion into the star-shaped cookie cutter. Press down with a teaspoon until the dough fills the star shaped evenly. Now repeat again until you have 12 star cookies!
Place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes.
Finally remove from the cookies from the oven and leave to cool.
Enjoy your cookies! Store in an airtight container and eat within a week.
