Anyone who knows me well will know that I am a right cookie monster so when I fancied doing some baking last weekend I of course plumped for a cookie recipe! I tried to go for an ever so slightly healthier variation than the classic chocolate chip so decided to give oat and raisin cookies a go! I basically followed this recipe from Amy’s Healthy Baking blog but swapped out a couple of the ingredients because I wasn’t feeling quite that healthy!
90g wholemeal flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
2 tbsp margarine
1 tsp vanilla extract
I began by whisking together the oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Then, in a separate bowl I whisked together the butter, egg and vanilla. I then combined the two and stirred together folding in the raisins also. This was then chilled for thirty minutes before popping onto a baking tray,
The cookies were then baked for around fourteen minutes at 160C.
After baking the cookies were left to cool for ten minutes.
