Quick Oats and Dried Fruit Cookies

These cookies are addictive; you just can’t stop eating them! They are easy to make and can be given as giveaway as well.

½ cup quick oats
½ cup shredded coconut
½ cup sunflower seeds
½ cup of raisins, chocolate chips, cranberries or any other type dried fruit
¼ cup of sugar (you can even reduce it, the cookies are very sweet)
¼ cup of vegetable oil

1 egg (you can try and replace it with tahini)

1 tsp of vanilla extract


Mix all dry ingredients (this can be done ahead of time).
Add the oil, egg and vanilla extract.
Scoop little balls with a spoon on a baking sheet.
You can shape them any way you like. I made some as balls and some flat. The cookies don’t raise and don’t change their shape so make sure that you shape them nicely. Also, you don’t have to space them much for this reason.

Bake 15 minutes in 170C/338F degrees until the cookies turn light brown.
The recipe yields about 17 cookies.
