Healthy Cinnamon Cookies




Yield 36 Cookies



  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (360 Fahrenheit) 
  2. Place all the ingredients in a food processor
  3. Whizz until the dough begins to come together as a ball, it will be sticky
  4. Form the dough into a rough ball by hand
  5. Lay a sheet of baking paper on a baking tray, place the ball of dough in the center. Place another sheet of baking paper on top of the ball. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out to approximately 0.5 cm thick between the 2 sheets of baking paper
  6. Remove the top layer of baking paper
  7. Bake for 8-12 minutes (I give a range as once it starts browning it browns fast) you just want the edges to be going brown)
  8. Remove from the oven, while still warm slice into squares, I use a pizza roller for this, and make the squares approximately an inch in size
  9. Allow to cool, the biscuits become crispy as they cool
  10. Serve


Allergy notes, to be dairy free this recipe requires coconut oil instead of butter.  This recipe is wheat free, however not gluten-free if using traditional oats
