We’re not sure who first decided poppy seeds and citrus belong together, but we’re glad it’s something everyone can agree on! These super easy cookies are best enjoyed with a warm cuppa tea and perhaps the company of a good friend.

15 mins to cook

  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 190°C.

  2. Step 2

    In a bowl, combine the flours, sugar, butter, and zest of three tangerines.

  3. Step 3

    In a separate bowl, stir the poppy seeds, chia seeds, and the juice of one tangerine until combined. Add this into the mix and work with your hands until a dough is formed. Set aside for 10-30 minutes in the refrigerator to allow the dough to harden.

  4. Step 4

    Remove from the fridge and roll into balls, about a tablespoon per cookie. Place on a lined baking tray, using a fork or spatula to flatten slightly.

  5. Step 5

    Bake for 15 minutes until golden.
