Introduction

Have you ever wondered what would happen if a fruit cake and ANZAC biscuits had a love child?

It’s okay, I know you have.

Introducing the Spiced Oat Cookies.

Soft and chewy in the centre with crispy edges, full of fruit and spiked with a slug of my Chai Syrup, these cookies taste like a fancy fruit cake.

Made with wholesome ingredients and minimal sugar, they’re perfect for lunchboxes and afternoon tea alike.
