Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Cookie

Nothing beats homemade cookies! If you run out of snacks in your pantry, and you’re lockdown at home because of the Covid19 pandemic. Stay calm. Don’t complicate things; you can try this recipe. So quick and easy.

Ingredients

  • 75g wholemeal flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 75g porridge oats
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 75g butter (or coconut oil)
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup (or organic honey)
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • optional – add chocolate chips or cacao nibs or raisins if you like

*** you can replace 1 teaspoon (5 grams) of baking powder in a recipe with 1/4 teaspoon (1 gram) of baking soda and 1/2 cup (122 grams) of plain/Greek yogurt

Before, I thought that baking soda and powder are similar, but they’re certainly not the same. Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate, which requires an acid and a liquid to become activated and help baked goods rise. Conversely, baking powder includes sodium bicarbonate, as well as an acid. It only needs a liquid to become activated.

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  2. Sift flour into a bowl. Mix in baking powder, porridge oats and sugar.
  3. Melt the butter, syrup and milk in a small saucepan or in the microwave and stir.
  4. Add to the dry ingredients. Mix until the liquid covers all the oat mixture and until well combined.
  5. Spoon onto a baking tray and shape into rounds, leaving space between each biscuit as they will spread whilst cooking.
  6. Bake for 10 to 15 mins, or until golden brown. Leave to cool for 5 mins before removing from tray.

There you go! Enjoy. They’re perfect served with a cuppa!
