Flaxseed Oat Coconut Cookies

I have discovered the amazing taste of toasted flaxseed. It has found its way into my energy bars and now my cookies. If you are not a fan of toasted sesame, give toasted flaxseed a try instead and be surprised by the chocolate crunch the little seed gives.

This batch of cookies was made so that hubby can have something to munch before he heads out for his long-distance runs. It also travels well and looks pretty to be given away as gifts.

I eat it cold because it firms out the cookie and brings out the crunch. But go ahead and dive into the cookie jar if chewy is what you like.

Adapted from here.

225g soft butter
     160g coconut sugar, lightly packed
1 egg

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1 teaspoon vanilla seeds
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon crushed Maldon salt
170g wholemeal flour
130g instant oats  
40g coconut flakes
40g toasted flax seeds

170g raisins
60g chopped walnuts  

On the standalone KA,
Whisk butter , sugar  and egg on medium high until fluffy.
Combine contents in B.
Change the whisk to a paddle.
Add (B) to egg mixture and mix until homogenous.
Add raisins and walnuts. Mix to combine.

Rest the combined cookie dough for 30 minutes, covered.

Preheat oven to 180C.
Prepare 2 silicone lined cookie trays.
Spoon 1 Tbsp of dough and roll into a ball.
Transfer the ball to the prepared tray.
Flatten with 3 fingers until cookie is about ½ cm thick.
Repeat, leaving about 2 cm between cookies to allow room for 
expansion during baking.
Bake the cookies at 12 minutes at 180C.
Remove to cool.
When cookie is cool to the touch transfer them onto a cookie rack to 
cool to room temperature.
Store in an airtight container.
I let the cookies ‘ripen’ in the fridge to bring out the crunch and firm bite.


  1. I want to try this recipe and I'd like to give flaz seeds a try. Never had them before.
