So, it was Sunday and my sis and me really wanted to have a nice, comforting cookie to sweeten the day with. We wanted it fast and without having to go to the neighbours for a fancy ingredient. Well, this is the recipe we found. It completely fit the bill. Hope youll enjoy it, too! :)
- 80 g butter, softened
- 50 g brown sugar (1/4 cup)
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon plain yogurt or 1 tablespoon milk
- 100 g oats, whizzed to a finer consistency (or use oatbran)
- 1 teaspoon ground vanilla bean
- 125 g flour (1 cup)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 120 g chocolate, chopped
- In a big bowl cream butter and sugar. Add egg and yoghurt/milk. Mix inches.
- In a second bowl combine oats, vanilla, flour and baking powder. Add flour mixture to creamed butter. Stir in well.
- Fold in chocolate pieces.
- Form into small balls (size of a walnut) and flatten slightly. Place on a paper-lined baking sheet.
- Bake in the preheated oven at 180°C/375°F for 10-15 minutes.
Loula, you have the best cookie recipes! I have to laugh at myself - the first time I made these (yesterday), I completely forgot the oats - it came to me when I was saving the photo. Even so, the cookies came out well! Having remade them WITH the oats today, they're even better! I increased the brown sugar to 6 tbsp, as my audience likes a sweeter cookie. I also used vanilla bean paste; the flavour came through extremely well! For those using american measurements, the butter was 1/3 cup, the oats were 1 cup, and the chocolate chips were 2/3 cup. I got 22 cookies, which I made with my handy dandy cookie scoop. Thanks for the great recipe! I particularly like that they make a small batch. Made for PRMR Tag.
Not too sweet, crispy, easy to make, what more can one wish for a rainy Sunday afternoon. I got 20 cookies, they baked for 15 minutes and I too liked that it makes a small batch. They went perfect with the afternoon coffee, such a treat.
Furthermore I was especially pleased with the metric measurements, so much easier, at least for me.
Thanks for posting.
I am lovin' these tender bites of chocolatey oatmeal goodness. These cookies are a cinch to whip up with ingredients that I usually have on hand. I was out of vanilla bean so I used vanilla extract. I whizzed the oatmeal in the food processor which I think is what makes these cookies so tender...they practically melt in your mouth. I loved the finer texture of these oatmeal cookies. They are delicious and you don't have to feel guilty treating yourself to a couple. They go perfectly with a cold glass of skim milk. I also like that it doesn't make a huge batch. I got 15 cookies out of my batch. Thanks for sharing, Loula! Made for March 2011 Aus/NZ Swap.
