Spiced Cranberry & Oat Cookie

Cranberry Oat Biscuit.jpg

These are made in the food processor and are a cinch to throw together. I use a homemade apple sauce as sweetener so there is no extra added sugar. They are still a biscuit though!

Oven at 170C

3 apples peeled cored and chopped

juice of 1/2 orange

175g oats blitzed to a flour

1 1/2 tsp mixed spice

80g butter

90g cranbererries

Cook the apple in the apple juice until it is soft, puree it and leave to cool

Add oat flour, spice, butter and apple sauce to a blender and blitz until it is like a thick dough. Add the cranberries and pulse a few times to combine.

Tip out on to a floured counter, roll out to 1 1/2cm thick and cut using a biscuit cutter.

Place on a lined baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes until golden.
