Makes 8-10 large Biscuits

Prep Time 10 minutes


1/2 cup shredded coconut

1/2 cup Pure Oats

1/4 cup Pepitas

1 tablespoon chia seeds

3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

1/4 cup water

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon honey

Flaked almonds for decoration.


If you like your biscuits on the sweet side, feel free to add 2 more tablespoons of honey.

In a bowl, add the coconut, Oats, seeds and vanilla.

Heat the coconut oil and honey to liquid.

Add the oil, honey and water. Stir till combined well and press together to form a ball so the dough holds its shape.

Line a baking dish with baking ( greaseproof paper ).

Form balls and place on the greaseproof lined baking dish. Place the second sheet on top, and with the palm of your hand press down gently onto each ball until desired thickness is achieved. This will flatten the balls to desired shape.

Press some flaked almonds on top. This is optional.

Bake in a fan forced oven at 160 degree Celsius for 12 – 14 minutes.

Once cooked, they will start to colour quickly so it is advisable to keep an eye on them to prevent burning.

Remove from the oven.  Allow to cool on the baking tray before moving.  When warm, they will be very soft but once cooled they will be easy to handle.
