Hello! Just wanted to share with you a quick recipe that is simple to make and great for those chocolate cravings. I made these for the girls lunchboxes, perfect size to keep their energy levels up. Plus they have chocolate in them so they are a winner!
I called these Caokies because they are like a biscuit and a cake. They are soft but when the chocolate pieces on top go hard it gives it a crunch….you could experiment in cooking them a little longer to give the outside a crunchier texture. Firstly you will need a baking tray lined with baking paper – I made 12 caokies. Also pre-heat your oven to 160 degrees (fan forced).
So all you need is the following –
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 tablespoon flaxseed
- 1 1/4 cup spelt flour
- 1/2 teaspoon bi carb soda
- 1/2 cup refined sugar – e.g. coconut
- 1 teaspoon vanilla bean pasta/extract
- 4 tablespoons mylk
- 1/3 cup apple sauce
- 1/2 cup choc chunk + extra for topping
Firstly blend together the oats, spelt flour, sugar, bi carb & flaxseed until the oats are a fine crumb. Tip into a bowl and add the apple sauce, vanilla & mylk. Mix together until all combined and let the mixture sit there for around 10 minutes.
Now you will need a dessert spoon and a cup of water because the mixture is a little sticky. See the video to your right. I just wet the spoon, scoop up some mixture and place on the baking tray. Now place in the oven for 10 – 15 minutes (depending on how soft you want them).
When you get your cookies out place some more chocolate chunks or buttons on top. They are so yummy warm as the chocolate melts on top! Check out the video….so good. Otherwise when they harden up they bring a crunch to the caokie!
I dunk mine in my tea or coffee – I get the best of both worlds that way…. haha!
Hope you and your family enjoy these!
