Cooking time


  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Line a couple of baking trays with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients, tossing the dried fruit in the flour to ensure no pieces are sticking together.
  3. Add the wet ingredients and mix with a spoon to combine.
  4. Using an ice cream scoop and wet hands, scoop out a golf ball sized amount of mixture, roll in your hands, slightly flatten into a cookie shape and place on the lined tray. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
  5. Place the cookies into the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Once cool store in an airtight container in the pantry.
