Coconut and Oat Biscuits with Strawberry Jam

Serves 12
Time 55 minutes

Ingredients

Oat Biscuits
120g whole rolled oats
1 tbsp shredded coconut
100g spelt flour
1 tsp salt
½ tsp bi-carb soda
2-3 tbsp honey
100g butter, diced
1 egg, beaten

Jam
125g fresh or frozen strawberries
½ cup granny smith apple, skin on grated, with liquid
½ cup chia seeds
1 tbsp fresh orange juice
Water as necessary (optional)

Method

Preheat oven to 180°C.

Jam
For the jam, place the strawberries in a saucepan with the grated apple, orange juice and simmer. Add sweetener of choice and stir in chia seeds, whisk until well combined and mixture thickens. Add water as necessary. Allow to cool, set aside.

Oat Biscuits
To make the biscuits, add oats to a food processor, pulse until fine. Add the spelt flour, coconut and bi-carb to the mixture and pulse a few times until combined. Add butter and honey, process mixture until combined and resembles breadcrumbs. Add egg to the mixture and process until mixture comes together, adding a bit of water if necessary.

Remove the mixture from the food processor and knead on a lightly floured bench. Form the dough into a log, wrap in cling wrap, refrigerate until firm, approx. 30-40mins.

Take the dough out of the fridge, roll dough into balls, place on lined baking tray and flatten with a fork, trying to make each biscuit the same size.

Bake in the oven at 180°C for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned, set aside to cool.

Take one biscuit, top with a spoonful of jam and press down with a second biscuit.
