Ok, so the cold season seems to have finally settled around these latitudes, and being heavily addicted to tea I craved for something good and homely to go with it. So I prepared these oatmeal cookies which I love because they are extra easy to do and they are mostly...oatmeal! Hardly no flour and little butter. A little afternoon indulgement and you will have a beautifully scented kitchen when these are in the oven.
Cream together till very fluffy
50 gr. soft butter
1/2 cup plus 2 Teaspoons brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
little chunks of chocolate (I used brown and white)
Sift and fold into the previous mix
50 gr. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
pinch of salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
175 gr. oatmeal
Mix well to form the dough, its quite soft so you will have to mold it with the help of two teaspoons. Place onto a greased baking tin and take to a 180º C oven for around 15 mins.
I can think many other flavory options for this mix, such as: replace chocolate by raisins and nuts, or little dices of apples, or even peanuts. Replace vanilla by orange sezt and add 1 Tbsp. of ground ginger...yummy....
