Cranberry & Macadamia Cookies

When someone mentions baking I immediately think of cake and cookies! Yet I haven't really shared too many of them yet in this bake-off......
So today I share a basic cookie recipe with you, that is so easy to make & yet so divinely tasty :-)


You'll need:
1 1/2 cups wholemeal self-raising flour
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup macadamia nuts
1/3 cup agave nectar
1 Tablespoon ground flax seeds 
3 Tablespoons boiling water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup plant milk of choice

Whisk together the boiling water with the ground flax seeds. Set aside.
Pour the macadamias into a small plastic bag and crush.
Place crushed nuts in a mixing bowl and add the flour and cranberries. Stir well so the fruit & nuts are evenly distributed.
Add the agave, vanilla, plant milk & flax mixture.
Stir til combined.

Line a baking tray with baking paper. Using wet hands, get 2 Tablespoons of mixture and roll into cookie shape, press down onto the tray & slightly flatten the tops with your fingers.
Place in a preheated 180C oven for 15 minutes.
Cool before serving.

Makes 18 cookies.
