Pinch of salt

30g Melted coconut oil

100ml Maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla bean paste

Zest 1 orange

1. In a bowl add the dried cranberries and sultanas and pour over the Fanta. Cover and allow to soak for a couple of hours

3. In a separate bowl mix the coconut oil, egg, maple syrup, vanilla bean paste and orange zest together

4. Pour the wet mix into the flour and oat mixture and mix together

5. Add cacao nibs to the soaked cranberries and sultanas and mix together- use some of the Fanta liquid from soaking the dried fruit to moisten the mixture (Candice used it all)

6. Place the mixture into the fridge for 30 minutes

7. Preheat oven to 160c fan and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper

8. Place the mixture in 20 rounds onto the baking tray (with space in between) and flatten slightly to 1/2 inch

10. Remove and transfer to a cooling rack

OPTIONAL- for an indulgent cookie, while warm, grate over the dark chocolate and allow to melt before cooling.
