These are great little lunch-box treats!
- 80g butter
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 Tbs pure maple syrup
- 1 small egg
- 1 cup oat flour (I put 1 cup of rolled oats in the food processor until finely ground - they have to be really fine otherwise it doesn't work)
- 1 cup spelt flour (could just use 2 cups spelt instead of oat)
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1/8 tsp sea salt
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 1 Tbs cinnamon
- 2 tsp baking powder
- Dark chocolate for dipping (optional)
- Melt butter, vanilla and maple syrup together in a small pot over low heat.
- Whisk in egg.
- Sift all dry ingredients into a large bowl.
- Pour butter mixture into dry ingredients and mix to form a soft dough, kneed lightly to form a ball.
- Wrap in cling-film and place in fridge to rest for 30mins.
- Place onto a clean floured surface, roll to about 3mm thick.
- Cut shapes and place onto a lined baking tray.
- Bake at 180c for about 15mins until golden and firm to touch
- Gently melt about 12 squares of dark chocolate in a bowl over a pot of boiling water (can add a couple Tbs coconut oil to make it go a bit further - just won't set as hard)
- Dip cooled bickies into chocolate, place on a lined tray to set (sometimes I put them in the freezer to speed up the process)
