  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • ¾ cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil 
  • cup rice malt syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon warm water
  • Pinch of salt


  • Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F
  • Blend 1 cup of the rolled oats in a blender into a fine oat flour
  • Add rolled oats, oat flour, coconut, baking powder and salt in a large bowl and mix
  • In a separate small bowl, add the melted coconut oil, rice malt syrup, vanilla and water and mix 
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry bowl and with a large spoon mix until well combined
  • Scoop a heaped tablespoon (or you can also use a cookie scooper) of the mixture into one of your hands and press into a ball shape using both hands. It helps if your hands are a little wet. 
  • Add the balls to a baking tray lined with baking paper, making sure to leave some gaps in between 
  • With your fingers and hands, gently flatten each ball into a round biscuit shape. Be super gentle when doing so as the mixture can break easily 
  • Put in the oven for 10 minutes for a softer biscuit or up to 15 minutes for a crunchy biscuit if you prefer them like me :) Bear in mind, this recipe is for a crunchier biscuit.
  • Rest biscuits on the tray for 5 minutes then on a cooling rack for an extra 5 minutes.
    The longer they are left, the more crunchy they will become!
