These chewy oatmeal cookies have a distinctive anise flavour and slight nutty taste. They are glazed with milk chocolate, topped with toasted chopped almonds, and low in sugar. We love these cookies, but if you aren't a fan of anise flavour, then these cookies are not for you.


  • 175 g Old fashioned rolled oats
  • 3 tbsp Einkorn, ground into flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Anise powder
  • 100 g Marzipan, finely diced
  • 100 g Butter, softened
  • 1 Egg
  • 5 packet NuNaturals white stevia powder
  • 1 tbsp Raw brown sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract

  • 150 g Milk chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Chopped almonds, toasted

  1. Preheat a fan forced oven to 170C/340F. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Toast rolled oats in a skillet over medium-high heat until lightly browned. Remove and cool to room temperature.
  3. Combine toasted rolled oats, ground einkorn, baking powder and anise powder in a bowl. Finely dice the marzipan. Cream together the diced marzipan, softened butter, egg, stevia, raw brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Stir in the flour mixture until combined.
  4. Drop tablespoonful of mixture onto prepared trays and press down slightly, allowing room for spreading. Bake for 10-12 mins until golden. Stand on trays for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Place the chopped milk chocolate in a bowl and set the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water. Stir occasionally until smooth. Coat the cookies with melted chocolate and sprinkle with some toasted almonds. | © 2015 |
