Pre heat oven to 150 C


Combine oats, coconut and almonds into a food processor and blitz for approx 30sec or so.  Add the oil, maple syrup, vanilla and the water and either mix by hand in a large bowl or process again in the processor. The addition of water will help the cookie mixture stick together - use more if mixture is a bit dry.
