Home-made cookies always make for a lovely treat and kids love them but what about sticking some goodies into them? This quick and easy recipe for Apple and Oat Cookies is a perfect combination of both – it makes for a perfect treat and it is full of good ingredients (more or less) 😉
This is yet another recipe from Make, Bake, Cookies – The Recipe Book I told you about some time ago. These one are from chapter 2 – soft & chewy and yes indeed they come out just as intended – nice and soft with lovely chewy middle. They are really nice with a cup of coffee, or milk or even a hot chocolate and make for a perfect snack.
So how do you make them?
Easy… let’s start with the ingredients:
- 2 large apples, peeled and cored
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 225g unsalted butter, softened plus a little extra for greasing
- 100g brown sugar
- 100g caster sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 225g self raising flour
- 150g rolled oats
- 85g raisins
Preheat oven to 180C / 350F or a Gas Mark 4.
Grease three large baking sheets.
Dice the apples and toss in the lemon juice.
Place the butter and sugars in a bowl and beat together until creamy. Gradually beat in the egg. Sift the flour and add the oats, raisins and apples. Mix until thoroughly combined.
Place dessertspoonfuls of the mixture on the prepared baking sheets spacing them well apart.
Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden around the edges.
Leave to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Nothing else to do but eat 🙂
Do you think they would count as one of your 5 a day?
