Bryte Havrekaka (Oatmeal Cookies)

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by diner524

A recipe I found on Outside Oslo, A Scandinavian Food Blog by Daytona Strong. This is a recipe from her grandmother and it didn't include an exact oven temperature or time, but stated to bake in a slow oven, which is a 300-325 degree oven and I would check on them starting at 12 minutes. Here is what she states about the cookies: "With just four ingredients–oatmeal, sugar, butter, and an egg–these cookies are much different from the chewier, denser American oatmeal cookies. These are at once decadent and delicate, with the flavors of the oats and the butter being allowed to shine."

Very nice buttery oatmeal cookies. I used all organic ingredients however the recipe certainly made more than it says but that may be due to me making a half batch with a whole egg. I may make these again insha Allah (God willing).


  1. Melt butter in a saucepan and fry the oatmeal lightly. Stir egg and sugar together. When the oatmeal is cooled, mix it all together. Drop from teaspoon onto well-greased cookie sheet. Bake in a slow oven, 300 - 325 degree oven and check on them at 12 minutes.
