  • 1 1/2 tbs chia seeds
  • 1 cup (150g) plain flour
  • 1 cup (90g) rolled oats

  • 100g butter, melted, cooled
  • 50g dark chocolate, chopped

Method

STEP 1 

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper. Whisk the chia and ⅓ cup (80ml) water in a small bowl until combined. Set aside, stirring occasionally, for 15 mins or until thick.

STEP 2 

Combine the flour, oats, coconut, sugar and pepitas in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Stir in the butter and chia mixture and use your fingertips to combine. Stir in the chocolate.

STEP 3 

Roll 2-tsp portions of the oat mixture into balls. Place on the lined trays and flatten slightly. Bake for 10 mins or until cookies are light golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Drizzle with the melted chocolate.
