baking dairy free gluten free high fibre recipe vegetarian Jun 25, 2024

makes 3 - 4 portions

So, here are some cookies for those long festive mornings when everyone wants to stay in bed a little bit longer. Reading papers, sipping tea, chewing a cookie or two, musing whether to go for a run or forget it altogether and start watching a movie straight away. Comes without saying, these are gluten/dairy free and super gut friendly. Very friendly for your blood sugar levels also, as reasonably high in protein and good fat.


  • 2 cups porridge oats
  • ½ cup coconut oil, melted
  • ⅔ cups sweet potato purée*
  • ¼ cup maple syrup or honey
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • ⅓ cup ground flaxseeds
  • 3 Tbsp cacao nibs (optional!)
  • ½ cup flaked almonds
  • ½ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp sea salt


*sweet potato purée is literally sweet potato peeled, cubed and boiled or steamed, then drained and mashed with a fork.

  1. Just bring all ingredients together and mix well.
  2. Use a spoon or ice cream scoop to shape cookies on a tray, make them sort of small egg sized, then slightly flatten (remember to use baking paper on your tray!)
  3. Top up with some more flaked almonds
  4. Bake at 175 C/fan for 25 mins or till golden brown
  5. Enjoy!
