Oatmeal and Raisin Cookies

Had a craving for something sweet today so thought I’d put the baking gloves on. End result? Oatmeal and Raisin Cookies! Crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside…can’t go wrong.

Don’t forget, this recipe is customizable-I added some walnuts and dates in here so feel free to throw in what you like. Also, for all you vegetarians/vegans out there, this recipe is egg-less so get on it!

Makes Approx 24

What we need:

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
Flax seed powder (optional)
3 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
3/4 cup plain flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
3 cups oats
1 cup raisins
1 cup walnuts/almonds/dates(optional)

How we do:

  • Preheat the oven to 180* C/ 350*F
  • In a bowl, cream the sugar and butter. Add the vanilla essence and milk.
  • In a separate bowl add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon powder, salt and flax seed. Mix well.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and add the oats, raisins, walnuts and dates. Mix well.
  • The mixture should be binded and sticky. If you find it’s a little dry, add a little milk.
  • Using wet hands, make little balls out of the dough and place on a lined tray. Flatten so they are 1/4″ thick.
  • Cook for 10-12 minutes or until cooked and golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire tray.
  • Balle Balle! You’re done. Enjoy these delicious cookies with a glass of chilled milk 😀
