This recipe started off as the cowgirl cookies recipe that I had to modify to get it to fit into smaller pasta sauce jars I had so I could give them as xmas gifts… then I decided to try replacing some flour with almond meal and tweaking it a bit more.


1/2 cup almond meal *
1/2 cup wholemeal SR flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup choc chips
1/2 cup shredded coconut (or use 1/4 cup desiccated)
1/2 cup butter (melted)
1/4 cup raw sugar
1 egg
1tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tsp cinnamon
About 2tb ground linseeds (which you can leave out)

Mix together, roll into balls, flatten out to about 1cm thick (they won’t really rise much) and bake at 180ÂșC for 15-20 mins.

* You can use 1 cup of SR flour instead of half flour and half almond meal, but you may need to add a little more melted butter, as the flour makes the mixture dryer than using almond meal.

You could leave out the choc chips or use sultanas instead. I sometimes also add about 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts too.

Mix together the oats, flour and sugar. Melt the butter and add the golden syrup, then mix this into the dry ingredients. When combined, press into a slice tray, and bake at 160 for 15-20 mins, or until golden brown. Cut it into bars while still warm, but allow to cool in the tray before removing.
