My Attempt at a Bake Off Themed Tutorial

I may be missing Mary Berry *sobs gently at the good old days* but I find watching tutorials shows how easy they are to make. I’m not a very good baker, but these seem to work every time and are the perfect cookies to enjoy with a cup of coffee with friends.

What’s In Them?

The recipe changes every time I make these depending on what I have in my cupboards with sometimes the addition of sesame seeds, chia seeds or nuts. But I wanted to make the base ingredients, something that you will most likely have in your pantry - or for all you apartment renters out there *holla* your 'cupboards'.

Here is the most basic recipe, which hopefully the ingredients will be in your cupboards. If you’re feeling extra sassy why not try adding any of the above!

2 Cups Gluten Free Oats

¼ Maple Syrup / Date Syrup or Honey (if you’re not vegan)

½ Cup Melted Coconut Oil

1 tsp Vanilla Paste

Preheat the oven to 160˚C

Mix the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl

Melt the coconut oil in a smaller bowl then add the vanilla paste and maple syrup (it’s best to add the vanilla paste at the end as you don’t want to burn it)

Pour the wet into the dry and get in there with your hands, making sure all the oats are covered

Lightly grease a baking tray and making rough thin cookie at around 6 cm wide

*Don’t worry if the mixture isn’t sticking together, once baked they harden and make a delicious thin snap cookie*

Bake in the oven for around 8 minutes, remove and allow to cool, to make sure they harden

Make a large cup of earl grey tea, and enjoy
