Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 360ºF and line a tray with parchment paper.
  2. Place oats, dates, maple syrup, vanilla essence and coconut oil into a high-speed food processor and blitz until smooth.
  3. Add coconut chips and blitz very briefly until well combined but chunks of coconut are still visible.
  4. Divide mixture into evenly sized balls (approximately 1 ½ tbsp per ball) and place on baking tray. Using the back of a fork, gently press the balls to flatten slightly into a cookie shape.
  5. Bake in oven for 15 - 20 minutes or until golden.
  6. Allow to cool completely before handling/serving. They are super crumbly when still warm so your kiddos have to be a little bit patient!
