  • 125 g self-raising flour
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup chopped dark chocolate
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup plant butter
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 flax egg To make a flax egg add 1 tbsp ground flaxseed and 3 tbsp water to a bowl or cup, mix and then leave for 5 minutes.


  • Preheat your oven to 180c | 356f | Gas Mark 4.
  • Combine all of the ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Make sure it's completely mixed - get messy and use your hands if you need to. You'll know it's ready when it holds its shape in a lump of cookie dough.
  • Seperate your cookie dough into 12 equal pieces (or 24 for mini cookies) and roll them into balls.
  • Place each of the cookie dough balls on a lined baking tray with space in between each one.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes until they're starting to go golden brown on top.
  • Let them cool for 5 minutes before you dig in and enjoy!
