Easy, Healthy Ginger Fig and Oat Biscuits Recipe

healthy easy cookie recipe


Hey guys, so after so many of you read my easy, healthy banana bread recipe I thought it was about time I wrote down my healthy biscuits/cookie recipe. You can watch us making the banana bread recipe at 15 mins on my recent vlog here too if you missed it. I have lots more of these healthy recipes coming so just tweet me or drop me a comment/message on Instagram me @emshelx if you want more recipes and definitely tag me in your photos too when you bake them.  I've always loved cake and cookies, basically, give me all the sugar but I'm the kinda girl who will sit and eat a multipack of biscuits followed by a full pack of Oreos after spoon feeding myself Nutella. I have no cut-off point so that's why I try to ensure I always have healthy snacks in the house. If you've read any of my fitness posts you'll know I'm all about balance, so yeah, cookies are okay but everything in moderation. I strongly believe in having healthy stuff ready to grab in my house. I crave sugar more than a normal person should but with these in the house, at least I'm grabbing goodness. So, get ready, come bake some healthy, easy, dairy free (+ vegan-friendly if you leave the honey out) delicious cookies with me. 

These particular cookies were inspired by Rhiannon Lambert and her Renourish book. I often use my favourite ladies recipes and then put my own twist on them.

You will need (I know this looks like a lot but they're quite basic ingredients most people should have in a cupboard!): 

- Almond milk
- Olive oil 
- Honey - I love Manuka Doctor (or use a vegan substitute if you're vegan like agave or maple syrup) 
- Oats 
- Desiccated coconut (get one with no added sugar) 
- Crushed mixed nuts 
- Ground ginger
- Cinnamon
- Ground almonds
- Figs (if you don't like figs swap for cranberries or raisins, aqgain, with no added sugar) 
- Vanilla Essence 
easy healthy cookies
Method: 

- Mix a tablespoon of chia seeds with 2 x large cups of almond milk and allow to stand for a few minutes while the chia seeds soften

While you’re waiting, gently heat:

- Tablespoon of olive oil 
- 6 tablespoons of runny honey 

- Once your chia seeds have softened and your honey mix is warm, mix the milk, chia seeds and honey all together and stir it in to the following ingredients:

- 1 large cup of oats
- 2 tablespoons of desiccated coconut
- 1 tablespoon of crushed mixed nuts
- 2 teaspoons of ground ginger
- 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons of ground almonds
- 4 large soft figs chopped in to pieces
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla essence

You can now either press this down in to a baking tray in one slab or make it in to several large biscuits.  Either way, place the mixture on lightly oiled baking parchment and cook it in the oven on 160 degrees for around 40 mins.  The mixture should be quite thick, like burger patties so it's stuck together. Make it thinner if you want crispier cookies but ensure it sticks together and isn't a liquid mixture, if it is, add more oats.

When it feels a little firm to touch, take it out of the oven and enjoy hot or when cooled. 

Equipment you may need:





Tadaa, there we have it. The my yummy biscuit recipe! Now, get baking and show me your photos on Instagram: @emshelx - next time try my healthy chocolate peanut butter cups recipe or my 3 ingredient vegan pancake recipe :)


Lots of love, Em x
