These cookies are delicious and very easy to make. They are relatively inexpensive too and are a great recipe to make with kids. These cookies are made with porridge oats so are a great snack that can kill your hunger and make a great and tasty breakfast on the go. As a healthier alternative, they can be made with dried fruit and nuts instead of the chocolate drops. You could even try making heart shaped cookies for Valentine’s Day! They’re perfect for freezing so you can make them in a large batch to reuse again.
- 125g light Muscovado sugar
- 125g butter, at room temperature
- 150g porridge oats
- 1 medium egg
- 125g wholemeal plain flour
- 75g chocolate drops
Makes approx 12 cookies.
1. Prepare the mix:
Preheat an oven to 180°C and grease or line two baking trays. Cream together the sugar and butter using a wooden spoon. Add the porridge oats and the egg and combine well. Sieve in the wholemeal flour and chocolate and mix.
2. Shape the cookies:
Roll the mixture into small balls and transfer to the baking tray. Pat them down gently, making sure to leave enough space around each cookie to allow for the mixture to spread in the baking process. Each cookie will have a lovely rustic shape.
3. Bake the cookies:
Bake the cookies in the oven for 15-20 minutes until lightly golden. Ensure that the cookies do not brown too much. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool and harden on the baking tray. Once cooled, store them in an air tight container.
These are also an easy afternoon treat to make for the family. Simply pour a glass of milk, grab some cookies and sit back, relax and enjoy!!
