Cacao is the raw form of the amazing bean that becomes chocolate. In its raw form, it is full of nutrients and living enzymes and has the same antioxidant as red wine. Cacao nibs are the least processed form so retain the health benefits that are lost in processing.

Cacao and Oat Biscuits


115g butter
½ cup rapadura sugar
½ cup raw sugar
1 egg
½ tsp vanilla
1 cup plain flour
1 cup rolled oats
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp bicarb soda
½ tsp salt
1 cup cacao nibs


Preheat oven to 180 degrees and prepare a baking tray with baking paper.

Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. When the butter sugar mix is light, add the egg and vanilla and mix to combine.

Combine the flour, oats, baking powder, bicarb soda, salt and cacao nibs in another bowl. Then slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until mixed well.

Roll small balls of the mix and lay out on the tray with enough room for a little spread.

Bake for about 8min or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.

ENJOY with a lovely cup of tea!
