Watch the one minute recipe video to see all instruction steps.
Preheat the oven to 180.C (356.F).
Using a fork, mix all the dry ingredients (oat flour, cornflour, stevia sugar, and spirulina) in a mixing bowl.
Add the wet ingredients (melted coconut oil and plant milk) and mix again. Knead with your hands to form a dough ball***.
Separate the dough ball into 6 cookie balls and place them on a baking tray with baking paper.
Using your hand, flatten up the cookie balls to shape them into cookies.
Use the back of a fork to create a cross-hatch on each cookie, and bake for 15 minutes.
Melt the dark chocolate**** in a small bowl or small container and dip half of each cookie into the melted dark chocolate.
Let cool for 10 minutes or until chocolate hardens, and enjoy!
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
*To turn oats into oat flour, simply blend them in a high-speed blender or food processor until the oats turn into flour. You can also purchase oat flour online or in-store if you don’t have a blender. Make sure you use gluten-free oat flour if you are sensitive to gluten.
**This recipe can be made without the spirulina if preferred. Scroll up to the start of the recipe description to learn about the benefits of spirulina on health.
***Add slightly more plant milk to your cookies dough if the dough does not come together when kneading. If, however, the dough is too sticky, add slightly more oat flour or cornflour.
****To melt the dark chocolate, microwave for about 1 minute and 30 seconds, or use the bain-marie technique.
