I decided that after a long day at work, and a little trip to the gym I deserved a little treat. I found a recipe for oaty cookies (the best kind of cookies!) that I wanted to try out, after having failed miserably at making chocolate biscuits last week (They ended up flying out the window, literally! I bet the squirrels and magpies appreciated that)
Now, before you start, consider doubling the recipe if you're making them for a crowd. The recipe is bullet proof, and you will definitely want more.
I also think this is a good base recipe for cookies, adding different things to them, like nuts, different fruits and other goodies!
Oaty Raisin Cookies
(Makes 12 small cookies, 85 calories each)
50g light butter
50 g caster sugar
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp cinnamon
50g wholemeal flour
1 tsp baking powder
- Firstly, heat the oven to 180°C, and grease a large baking sheet - placing it on a baking tray.
- In a large bowl, mix the butter and sugar until it goes white and smooth. Then stir in the honey, egg and cinnamon. Add two teaspoons of cinnamon if you really like the stuff, like I do!
- Take a smaller bowl, and mix the flour, baking powder, oats and raisins. Stir well before mixing it all into the butter mix.
- Drop heaped dessertspoons of the mix onto the baking sheet, allow room for spreading. Bake for 10-12 minutes until they are golden.
- Leave them on the tray to settle for a minute (I know, so...difficult...must....resist...), and then place them on a rack to cool.
Now, where's that glass of milk?!
