Sometimes when you see a recipe on the television, you know you just have to try it out as soon as you can! This is what happened here to me, and a lazy afternoon saw myself attempting to bake some cookies. No, not the classic Smriti's chocolate ones (though I've got to learn that one from her someday..she's the pro afterall). This time the recipe had oatmeal and I thought "oooh healthy munching" (ofcourse my mind chose to overlook the butter and flour), and it has nuts as a bonus, so who was to stop me!
The 1st batch was a bit disastrous, but after a little bit of tinkering around, it worked. :)
Here's what you need:
1 and a 1/2 cup plain flour
1 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup powdered white sugar or brown sugar
1/4th cup honey
1 cup quick cooking oats
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp baking soda
1/4th cup dried black raisins
Some chopped walnuts and almonds (optional)
What to do:
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees for 10 minutes.
Mix the flour, butter, baking soda, salt, sugar and oats together. Add the honey, raisins and chopped nuts. (You could add some vanilla extract to it too). The mix should be almost like a dough and not runny like a cake batter.
Roll out bite sized balls and lay them out on a greased baking tray. Do pat the balls and flatten them a little.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 175 degrees until they are slightly golden brown.
Cool the cookies and start munching them! They go pleasantly well with your cup of tea, coffee or milk :)
