HEALTHY FIG + OAT COOKIES RECIPE

healthy fig cookies

Like most people I’m always super busy juggling life which can sometimes make preparing healthy meals a challenge. I’m always on the go and always hungry (queen of hanger) I’m a real snacker and I’m always trying different things to make in abundance that I can snack on secure in the knowledge that what I am putting into my mouth both satisfies my appetite and is good for me. Here’s one thing I found ticks all the boxes recently (nb I’m not a fan of measuring as you will see) but this is quick, easy to make and it's good for you too. Sign me up for a lifetime supply.

You will need:
Dates
Chia seeds
Figs
Honey (or alternative if vegan)
Cinnamon
Oats

Put 10 dates in a bowl and cover with boiled water to soften them.

Add a small handful of chia seeds so that they congeal

Chop up 4 soft figs and throw them into the mix (great for extra fibre)

Once all the ingredients are soft whisk them with a hand blender

Mix the wet ingredients into two cups of oats

Drizzle 2 tablespoons of honey and mix all the ingredients together

Throw in a tablespoon of ground cinnamon

At this stage, if the mixture is too runny, add a few more oats and if it is too firm add a little boiled water to loosen it

Line a baking tray with some baking parchment and rub over a minimal amount of oil just to lightly grease it

With either clean hands or a spoon split the ingredients (should make about 10) and flatten each one on to the baking tray so they look like cookies

Bake in a pre-heated oven (fan 160 degrees)

Once they look firm and nicely browned, take them out of the oven and place on a rack or similar to cool

Once these are cooked, as an extra special treat you can break up some dark chocolate and mix it with a little almond milk or dunk it into my healthy chocolate spread recipe (it's delicious!!!)

Pop these ingredients into a dish and warm for 30 - 40 seconds in a microwave (or as long as you need to melt it based on your equipment)

Dunk one of the cookies in the melted chocolate (go for 90% dark if you're trying to be healthier) and enjoy. Save the rest until you feel peckish!! P.S, they also taste REALLY good with my  healthy strawberry ice cream and my healthy chocolate spread recipe
