Today’s procrastination of choice comes in the form of oat-raisin cookies, because you can’t possibly attend a picnic without bringing something yummy to share 🙂
These are a firm favourite with just about everyone that tries them, and are one of the recipes I’m asked for most often, so I thought I’d share it with you.
Honey Oat Raisin Cookies
Makes about 20
50g Pecans, broken into pieces
40g Desiccated Coconut
100g Plain Flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Salt
115g Unsalted Butter
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- In a large bowl, combine together the dry ingredients.
- Melt butter and add honey and vanilla.
- Mix wet ingredients into dry.
- Turn out mixture onto a sheet of Clingfilm and roll into a sausage.
- Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before unwrapping and slicing into rounds.
- Place cookies on a greased baking sheet and bake at 160°C for 12-15 minutes.
- Remove from oven and leave to cool.
As you can see, they’re fool-proof to make and you can customise them by playing around with the fruit and nuts you include. They also work really well with chocolate chips. A particularly good festive variation is dried cranberries and white chocolate chips, but you’ll have to wait a few months to really appreciate those.
Have fun baking!
PS – The raw dough is AMAZING!!!!!!
