Servings 8 cookies


  • 1 cup (gluten free) porridge oats
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 egg (or chia egg if vegan)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil , melted
  • 3 tbsp nut milk
  • Optional: melted dark chocolate to use as a drizzle


  • Preheat the oven to 180C and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a bowl mix together oats, cacao powder and baking powder.
  • In a separate bowl whisk an egg, add maple syrup, coconut oil and nut milk. 
  • Transfer wet ingredients in to the bowl with dry ingredients and mix until it resembles dough consistency.
  • Roll out 8 balls (allow 1 tbsp per ball) and place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. The dough will be quite sticky, so you might want to use spoons to scoop out the mixture onto the tray. 
  • Gently flatten the balls with a fork in a criss cross shape.
  • Bake in the oven at 180C for 10-12 minutes. If you are using dark chocolate drizzle, just let the cookies cool down slightly before drizzling them with chocolate.
