  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 175ml vegetable oil (no butter in these cookies)

  • 25g cocoa powder

  • 200g soft brown sugar

  • 40g desiccated coconut

  • 100g white sugar

  • 260g wholemeal flour

  • 2 eggs

  • 140g rolled oats

  • 180g chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 190C.
  2. Whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa until well blended.
  3. Beat oil, sugar and eggs together and add vanilla essence. Stir.
  4. Add dry ingredients gradually to wet, stir well, then add choc chips.
  5. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated.
  6. Put heaped tablespoons of mix on baking sheets lined with greaseproof paper. The mix is a bit crumbly to work, but not to worry. Just squish a bit with your fingers if you need to!
  7. Put in oven and bake for 7-12 minutes. They are cooked when slightly cracked on top and a bit more golden in colour.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool for a minute or two before transferring to a cooling rack.

    do you know what would make this a lot more healthier? coconut flour and coconut oil. Coconut flour is gluten free, high in fibre and low in carbohydrates. When it comes to coconut oil it is important to buy one that is cold pressed from young green coconuts. That's where all the health benefits lie. I use the TIANA Brand, its my favourite.. Its raw, organic and fair trade
