Oatmeal Cookies

Mmmmmm oatmeal cookies. This is a recipe I got from a friend of mine about 20 years ago. It is simple to make, tastes good, can be modified easily and is fun to bake with children!

You will need:

1/2 cup - (110 g) softened butter
1/2 cup (100 g) - sugar
1/4 cup (55g) - brown sugar
1 ts - vanilla sugar or vanilla extract
1 egg
1 cup - (130 g) whole grain flour
1/2 ts - baking soda
1/2 ts - salt
1 cup - (90 g) Rolled oats

Mix together the butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and egg. 

Incorporate the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix to obtain an even texture.

Add the oats. Here, I added more oats than the recipe requires.

The dough must stick together without sticking too much to the fingers.
Place lumps / balls of dough on a cookie pan. Flatten to obtain cookie shapes/thickness.
You should end up with 18 to 24 cookies.
(In this case, I had to cook it in two batches)

Place in the oven at 175 C. (350 F) with convection for 9 minutes.

And VoilĂ ! Enjoy your freshly baked oat cookies! :)


- I like to reduce the sugar quantities by half and up the oats quantity. I add oats until the dough is quite solid and reacts as mentioned above: It sticks together, but not too much to the fingers.

- You can easily add raisins, cranberries, chopped nuts or even chocolate chips / chunks to the dough to vary the taste and nutritional values.
