    170 g / 1 cup Crystal Margarine, room temperature
    75 g / 1 cup Dark brown sugar
    215 g / 1 cup Maple syrup
    2 large Eggs
    260 g / 2 cups All-purpose flour
    275 g / 2 1⁄2 cups Rolled oats
    90 g / 2⁄3 cup Shredded coconut, unsweetened
    120 g / 1 cup Currants or blueberries, dried
    60 g / 1⁄4 cup Almonds, chopped
    60 g / 1⁄4 cup Walnuts, chopped
    60 g / 1⁄4 cup Sunflower seeds, un-toasted and non-salted
    60 g / 1⁄4 cup Pumpkin seeds, un-toasted and non-salted
    45 g / 1⁄4 cup Flax seeds
    45 g / 1⁄4 cup Chia seeds
    45 g / 1⁄4 cup Sesame seeds
    5 g / 2 tsp Baking soda
    2 g / 1 tsp Cinnamon, ground
    2 g / 1 tsp Nutmeg, ground
    10 ml / 2 tsp Vanilla extract
    Pinch of salt


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 325°F(160°C).
  2. Cream the Crystal Margarine in a large bowl with an electric mixer set on high speed for 3 minutes, or until smooth and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula, as needed.
  3. Add the brown sugar, maple syrup, egg, vanilla, and salt. Mix on medium speed for 6 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as necessary.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, rolled oats, shredded coconut, nuts, seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg, dried fruit, and baking soda.
  5. Scrape down the margarine mixture with a spatula. Add to it the contents of the dry bowl.
  6. Mix on low speed just until the dough comes together. Over-mixing will result in tough cookies.
  7. Roll the dough into 12 large (or 24 small) balls.
  8. Place the balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Lightly press down on the balls to keep the dough from rolling around.
  9. Transfer to the preheated oven and bake for 8-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden and the centres no longer look wet. Be sure to rotate the baking sheet halfway through baking.
  10. Transfer the cookies to a resting rack and allow to cool completely before eating.

Chef Tips

  • This cookie dough can be portioned and frozen in freezer bags, allowing you to bake only as many cookies as you need.
  • Try adding different dried fruits to keep things interesting. Chopped dried apricots, cherries, strawberries, and mangoes work well.
