makes 22


100 grams macadamia nuts chopped coarsely

125 grams dried apricots cut up finely

180 grams dairy free while chocolate (sweet william)

250 grams of nuttelex

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup castor sugar

2 teaspoons of vanilla essence

2 eggs

2 cups of spelt flour

1/2 teaspoon of bicarb soda

1 cup craisins

2 1/2 cups oats


Preheat oven to 180 degrees, line two oven trays with baking paper. Mix together macadamias, apricots and white chocolate in a bowl. Put Nuttelex in a mixing bowl with the brown and castor sugars, beat with an electric mixer until soft and creamy, continue to mix until the mixture has increased in volume and the sugar has dissolved. Add vanilla essence and eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition.Add flour and bicarb to Nuttelex & sugar mixture and stir with a spoon lightly, add chocolate and nut mixture and oats and craisins, combine until mixed well, sometimes I do this with my fingers as it is easier. Measure 2 tablespoons of mixture into a ball, put ion tray and slightly flatten, repeat with remaining mixture, cook for approximately 12 minutes or until golden.
