YUM! Who doesn’t love a home baked cookie?
I posted this delish Bill Granger cookie recipe a few years back, not only is it a family favourite – it’s one of my most popular posts.
I love that the main ingredient is rolled oats, which are good for you and then there are a sprinkling of delicious choc chips or mini M & M’s for a bit of fun.
You could always half the cookie dough and make one half choc chip cookies and one half Rainbow cookies as lunch box treats.
150g unsalted butter
3/4 cup soft brown sugar (the recipe calls for 1 cup, but I cut the sugar down)
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup plain (all purpose) flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of salt
2 1/3 (235g) cups rolled oats
1 (175g) cup choc chips or 1 cup Mini M & M’s
1) Preheat oven to 180 degrees, line three large baking trays with baking paper.
2) Cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy and smooth. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat neil smooth. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the bowl and mix lightly. Add the oats and choc chips or Mini M & M’s and stir to combine.
3) Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls and place on the baking trays. Flatten the balls with a fork dipped in flour. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes, or until pale golden if you like them to be soft and chewy and longer if you like them with a bit of crunch. Remove from the oven and cool on trays for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
