Kids love cookies and there's no better place to hide healthy ingredients such as oats in cookies.
This cookie is a perfect mix of chewiness (due to the oatmeal) and yet crispy on the outside. Coupled with the melted chocolate chip cookies, it was no wonder my kids gobbled these up within three days!
This is another one of Bill Granger's easy to do yet amazingly delicious recipe. I'm sure it'll be a hit at home.
Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
A Bill Granger Recipe
- 150 g unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup soft brown sugar (the recipe calls for 1 cup, but I cut the sugar down)
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup plain (all purpose) flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- a pinch of salt
- 2 1/3 (235 g) cups rolled oats
- 1 (175 g) cup choc chips
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees, line three large baking trays with baking paper.
- Cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy and smooth. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat till smooth. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the bowl and mix lightly. Add the oats and choc chips and stir to combine.
- Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls and place on the baking trays. Flatten the balls with a fork dipped in flour. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes, or until pale golden if you like them to be soft and chewy and longer if you like them with a bit of crunch. Remove from the oven and cool on trays for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
