Method

  1. Heat the oven to 180°C / 160°C fan / gas mark 4. Line two oven trays with baking parchment.
  2. If using a chia egg, prepare it by mixing the chia seeds and water. Set aside for 10 mins.
  3. Mash half of the strawberries to a purée and finely dice the other half. Set aside. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, baking powder, ground ginger, egg and salt.
  4. Heat the almond butter in a pan on a gentle heat. When it has melted a little, remove from heat and mix in maple syrup and vanilla extract.
  5. Combine the almond butter mix with the oat mix. Fold in the purée and finely chopped strawberries.
  6. 1 heaped tablespoon at a time, spoon the cookie mixture onto the oven trays, forming 5-7cm diameter rounds. Flatten each one to an even thickness with a spoon. You might find it easier to use a large round cookie cutter as a guide.
  7. Bake in the oven for around 15 minutes until golden and firm.
  8. Once done, remove from the oven and leave to cool completely before transferring onto a serving plate.
