Check out the comments I write on my baking paper - this is the realness of recipe creating haha

I do look for ways to make my recipes allergen friendly as it is certainly on the rise not only for intestinal issues, but behavioral issues as well. I am blessed and I know it, apart from my dairy intolerances the rest of the family have no issues. This particular recipe I have used Pepita meal or pumpkin seeds simply thrown into the food processor until fine.

The word 'jam' is used loosely here as it is a really simple mix of berries and sweetener

INGREDIENTS:JAM

  • 2 cups    frozen raspberries
  • 1 cup      frozen blueberries
  • 1 tbs      honey

METHOD: JAM

  1. Place raspberries only and honey together in a saucepan on the stove - if you need to add a tbsp of water otherwise just put on a gentle heat and stir until moisture is released from raspberries.
  2. Gently simmer until raspberries start to break down and mix begins to thicken.
  3. Add blueberries and keep on stove for another 5 mins
  4. Allow to cool before using otherwise it will soak into cookie mix quickly

INGREDIENTS: COOKIES

  • 1 cup      oat flour(this is just oats pulsed in a food processor until fine meal)
  • 1/4 cup   pepita flour(pepita seeds pulsed in food processor until finer than crumbs
  • 1/8 tsp    ground salt
  • 1/4 cup   honey
  • 2tbs       coconut oil

METHOD: COOKIES  -  oven 170deg Fan forced

  1. Mix dry ingredients
  2. Add wet ingredients
  3. Mix will be slightly dry but you should be able to 'pinch' test it
  4. Roll into balls - place on tray, allow room to flatten slightly
  5. Press down and using the handle of a wooden spoon make an indent so you can fill these babies with your lovely berry jam
  6. Bake for 10 mins unfilled
  7. Bring out tray, fill with jam, back in the oven for another 5-7 mins
  8. Cookies should be firm when picked up off the tray(hot)
  9. Cookies will soften slighlty in the fridge & these can be frozen
