Recipe type: sweet
Ingredients
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds + 50 ml of water
  • 150 g rolled oats + 2 tbsp to garnish the cookies
  • 100 g wheat bran
  • 100 g spelt flour
  • 100 g Muscovado sugar
  • 200 g strawberries
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil (or sunflower oil)
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp of honey
  • 1 organic un-waxed lemon to peel
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven at 180 C°.
  2. Place the chia seeds in a glass and cover them with water. Let them soak for at least 10 minutes, until they become jelly-like. Keep them aside.
  3. Put the rolled oats, wheat bran, spelt flour, sugar, grated lemon peel, a pinch of salt and the baking powder in a food processor and blend them well until they become like a coarse flour. Put the mixture into a glass bowl.
  4. Add the chia seeds to the mixture, together with the coconut oil and a spoon of honey, and knead well with a spoon until you obtain a soft dough. It shouldn’t be too dense; if it is, add a little of water.
  5. Wash and dry the strawberries and cut them into little pieces. Add them to the dough, keeping aside a little quantity to garnish the cookies. Stir with a spoon until all ingredients are well mixed.
  6. Leave the dough out of the fridge for at least 15 minutes, so that it will become more solid, thanks to the thickening action of chia seeds.
  7. Cover a baking tray with some parchment paper. Using a spoon make some medium-size balls and put them on the baking tray. Press the balls with the back of the spoon to obtain about 1 cm thick cookies.
  8. Garnish the top of the cookies with the strawberries you have kept aside and with some rolled oats.
  9. Bake the cookies in a ventilated oven for about 20 minutes at 180 C° until they become golden brown.
