Recipe: Oat Cookies
This recipe is part of our Bake at Home box: Kids Favourites. This is one of our products that we created to help to keep the kids occupied while we're all at home, and to make some comforting treats while we're at it.
We love a low carb recipe... but sadly this isn't one. We're working on it though!
From your bake at home box:
125g Plain flour
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Baking powder
100g brown sugar
50g Caster sugar
Pinch of salt
You will also need:
115g Butter (room temperature)
1 large egg
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt, and then put it on one side.
- Using an electric mixer, cream together the butter, brown sugar and caster sugar until pale and fluffy.
- Add the egg and mix until fully combined.
- Slowly add in the flour mixture and continue mixing until just combined, then add the oats and sultanas and mix until fully combined.
- Scrape the cookie dough out onto a piece of cling film and wrap tightly. Pop it in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
- While the dough is chilling, preheat the oven to 175C/350F/Gas Mark 4 and line 2 large baking sheets with baking paper.
- Once the dough is chilled, remove it from the fridge and roll the dough into balls about the same size as a golf ball (about 5cm in diameter). Place the dough balls onto your baking sheets, leaving plenty of room between them as they will spread.
- Gently press down the dough balls with your hand to flatten them slightly - they don’t need to be completely flat - just a gentle squash is fine here!
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden and the top is set.
- Carefully take them out of the oven and leave them to cool for 5 minutes on the baking tray before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Storage: The cookies can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 5 days… but we doubt they’ll last that long!
Top Tip: Chilling the cookie dough for 30 minutes helps the cookies to firm up a little so that you get a delicious, chewy cookie but if you prefer a thinner, crispier cookie you can skip the chill stage.
