The life artistic – Honey Oat Raisin Cookies


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

125g Oats

75g Raisins

75g Sultanas

50g Pecans, broken into pieces

40g Desiccated Coconut

100g Plain Flour

1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder

1/4 teaspoon Salt

170g Honey

115g Unsalted Butter

1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

  1. In a large bowl, combine together the dry ingredients.
  2. Melt butter and add honey and vanilla.
  3. Mix wet ingredients into dry.
  4. Turn out mixture onto a sheet of Clingfilm and roll into a sausage.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before unwrapping and slicing into rounds.
  6. Place cookies on a greased baking sheet and bake at 160°C for 12-15 minutes.
  7. 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!!!!!!
