  • 250 grams dried Mixed Fruit
  • 100 grams chopped Nuts omit if nut free
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 2 Tablespoons Sherry/Port (Orange Juice can be
  • substituted)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil softened
  • 1/4 Cup Maple Syrup/Rice Malt Syrup
  • 3/4 Cup Coconut Flour
  • 1 1/2 Cups plus 2 Tablespoons Arrowroot
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cloves



  • Combine the mixed fruit, nuts, honet and sherry in a small container and shake. Keep in the cupboard overnight (or longer if desired).
  • Using a kitchen stand mixer with a beater attachment or a blender (either will work), add the wet ingredients and beat/blend until well combined. This will take longer using a kitchen stand mixer.
  • Add the dry ingredients and beat/blend until all combined. Scrape down the edges of the bowl/blender and beat/mix again.
  • Stir through the fruit and nut mix, including any liquid.
  • Remove the dough and divide into 2. Take each segment and make into a log; approximately 25cm (10 inches) long and 5 cm (2 inches) wide. Wrap each log in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for a minimum of 5 hours. The dough can be double wrapped and frozen here or kept in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/360F. Line and grease a baking tray.
  • Remove 1 log from the frige and cut into 1.5cm (2/3 inch) width slices. Place each slice on the baking tray. If a slice crumbles, simply form it into a cookie usng your hands. Repeat with the other log or keep it in the fridge for later.
  • Bake for 15 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the tray before eating.
