    140 g oats, 60 g raisins, dried fruit or vegan chocolate chips, 40 g chopped nuts, seeds or desiccated coconut
  • Roll heaped teaspoons of dough into balls and place onto the lined tray, spacing them a few centimetres apart as they will spread. Flatten slightly and then bake for 8-12 minutes, until the edges are set and browned. They will crisp up as they cool.
  • Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely then place into an airtight container at room temp. They will keep for up to 2 weeks.



No vegan butter? You can replace the vegan butter with 80g of vegetable oil, sunflower oil, peanut oil, walnut oil or coconut oil.
No treacle? Leave it out altogether OR leave it out and replace the granulated sugar with 150g light brown sugar.
Aquafaba is the liquid from a can of cooked beans. We've successfully used the liquid from cans of chickpeas, butterbeans, kidney beans, black beans and cannellini beans in this recipe.
If you don't have any aquafaba, you can instead use:
- 1 flax egg (combine 1 tbsp ground flaxseed with 3 tbsp warm water)
- 4 tbsp unsweetened, smooth applesauce
