So....I might just have discovered a simple and deeelicious way of adding brilliant flavour to cookies - fruit flavoured, deep, dark and seductive chocolate!
I adapted the recipe I have for simple "Oaty Raisin Cookies", and this is what happened:
Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cookies
(Makes about 9)
50g light butter
50g sukrin gold or brown sugar
1 tbsp syrup or honey of choice
1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla sugar (optional)
50g wholemeal flour
60g dark chocolate with raspberry flavour (I got mine at Lidl), you can of course use other flavoured chocolates too, but I hiiiighly recommend this one!
- Pre-heat the oven to 180°C. Line an oven tray with baking paper.
- In a bowl, start by creaming the butter and sukrin/sugar until it's well combined and creamy, then add the syrup or honey, egg, cinnamon, baking powder and vanilla sugar (if using). Stir well before adding the flour and oats and incorporate this well until you have a sticky batter.
- Now, chop the chocolate and add to the cookie batter. Set with two teaspoons onto the baking paper, and bake for about 10-12 minutes. Once done, tryyyyy and behave and let them cool a little bit so they're easier to peel off the baking paper, otherwise - all the chocolate might end up on the parchment and the cookies might fall apart. I know leaving them be for ten minutes is tricky, but it'll be worth it, trust me!
Serve with a cuppa or a glass of milk, and enjoy!
