Recipe: Crunchy Oat Cookies

  • Wheat flour (1.5 glasses)
  • Oat flakes (1.5 glasses)
  • Butter (100gr)
  • Sugar (0.5 glasses)
  • Milk (20ml – tiny bit!)
  • Seeds and nuts
The first step is to preheat the oven to 170C (fan assisted). Then, mix butter, sugar and milk in large bowl. Separately, mix flour and oat flakes, and add it to the bowl with butter and sugar. The reason we do that separately is to make cookies crunchier. Otherwise, you can mix everything together in one go. If the nuts/seeds are too large, crush them a bit and mix it with the rest of the ingredients. The end result (dough) should be a homogeneous, quite solid, brownish mixture.
With dampened hands, otherwise the dough will stick to your fingers, divide the mixture into even portions and shape them (round shape is way outdated!) as you like on a baking tray. I tend to use non stick baking paper rather than buttering the tray.
Bake for 12-15 minutes; let it cool for a minute or two and they are ready to go...
Bonn Appetite!
