Cinnamon Pomegranate & Cashew Cookies

With the first batch coming out more like scones which gave your jaw way too much of a workout to be featured here, I altered the recipe, tried again and Yaaaas!

Satisfyingly crunchy on the outside and a cushioning softness on the inside, this healthier alternative, doesn't half please those cold weather cravings!

Cinnamon, Pomegranate & Cashew Cookies

Cinnamon, Pomegranate & Cashew Cookies


125g Coconut Oil
125g Dark Brown Sugar
1 Banana (mashed)
1 Tbsp Chia or Flax seeds (mixed with 3 tbsp hot water)
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
250g Plain Flour (plus more if dough is too wet)
Seeds of 1/2 a pomegranate
Generous handful of Cashew nuts (roughly chopped)


 - Preheat oven to Fan 180 C / 200 C / Gas Mark 6

1. Mix Coconut Oil and Brown Sugar together

2. Add Banana and Chia/Flax seeds

3. Fold in Flour and add the Cinnamon, mixing until you have a slightly stiff and sticky dough

4. Add the Pomegranate and Cashews and knead till fully incorporated.

 5. Take equal sized chunks of the dough (or use a spoon or an ice cream scoop) and shape them into cookies, (with this dough, it is easier to shape them by hand rather than use a cookie cutter).

 6. Place them equal spaces apart on a lined tray.

7. Bake for 30 minutes.
