Oat choc chia cookies (freezer friendly)

Welcome back to my Freezer Friendly Lunchbox Series, Episode 2: Oat choc chia cookies.

Our second installment brings us these delicious, freezer-friendly cookies packed with the good stuff like oats, seeds and sultanas (with a drizzle of dark chocolate, for good measure). They’re the perfect ‘treat’ for your child’s lunchbox with a few added health benefits.

This recipe makes about 20 cookies that store well in the freezer for 3 months. I actually quite like eating them straight from the freezer, but they will defrost in your little one’s lunchbox if you pop them in first thing in the morning, or last thing at night.
