Christmas Oat Cookies

These cookies are really quick and easy to make and use ingredients that you will probably have in your cupboard, except maybe the dried apple rings and buckwheat. Both of these can be bought from most supermarkets or you could leave them out the apple rings and grind up 50g oats instead of the buckwheat.


Makes 12 (depending on size)

  • 200g oats
  • 50g buckwheat – ground
  • 5 dried apple rings
  • 20g dried cranberries or sultanas
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 100ml almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 6 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • Pinch of ground cloves
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Pinch of all spice


  • Preheat the oven to 180C
    or Gas mark 4
  • Grind the buckwheat into flour – I use a coffee grinder
  • Melt the coconut oil in a small pan
  • Chop the dried apple rings into small pieces
  • Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl
  • Line 2 baking trays with grease proof paper
  • Roll the mixture into 12 balls, place them on the baking trays and flatten them out using your fingers, I like them a bit thicker so that they are soft inside, however you can make them thinner and crispier if you prefer.
  • Bake for 15 mins
  • Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack, store in an airtight container
