If you love baking just as much as I do then you'll know that tonight is the start of a new series of one of my favourite shows.... The Great British Bake Off! To get in the mood of baking yesterday I decided to bake these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. I've never made these before or any cookies with oats for that matter so I wasn't sure how they were going to turn out, but they taste so so good if I do say so myself!
I managed to make 12 (quite large) cookies with this recipe, although there's definitely not even half that many left now!
150g plain flour
1tsp baking powder
175g unsalted butter
100g dark brown sugar
2tsp vanilla extract
250g rolled oats
75g chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees and line two baking trays with baking paper.
2. Stir together the flour and baking powder in a bowl.
3. In a separate bowl, mix together the butter and sugars with an electric mixer.
4. Add the egg and whisk again, followed by the vanilla.
5. Then gradually add the flour to this mixture and mix together with a wooden spoon until combined. Then add the oats and chocolate chips and mix again.
6. Using a tablespoon add the mixture to the baking trays (I managed to fit 6 onto each tray) and flatten slightly with the back of the spoon, but ensure that there's space between the cookie mixtures.
7. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes until golden.
I hope you enjoyed this recipe and let me know if you decide to make them too! They're definitely the best cookies I've ever made before, but would Mary and Paul approve? I hope so!
