Autumnal Oatmeal Cinnamon Cookie – Recipe

I have been baking since I was around 8 years old, cakes, breads, biscuits you name it I’ve probably attempted it. However these bakes were always from cook books. I worried that if I experimented with my own bakes I’d end up wasting ingredients, time and make something less then delicious.

Whenever I sat down to watch the Great British Bake Off I’d always say to my boyfriend Robbie, “I could do that” but hadn’t really thought about the fact that yes, I could follow the recipe and yes, it would turn out delicious. but in fact no, I couldn’t do exactly that. I couldn’t turn up with my bakes and say “these are mine.”

So I decided, enough is enough, time to experiment and I’m so pleased I did! Although my personal baking repertoire isn’t huge I have now got a few staples, one being these Oatmeal Cinnamon Cookies.

These are the perfect alternative to a cereal bar and taste SO much better then anything store bought. They also have healthy whole ingredients and have a really reasonable amount of calories so are perfect if you’re watching your figure. They’re going to become an autumn staple in my household.


Ingredients

  • Butter – 70g
  • Light brown sugar – 100g
  • Egg – 1 large
  • Honey – 1tbs
  • Vanilla Extract – 1tsp
  • Oats – 100g
  • Plain Flour – 100g
  • Cinnamon – 1tsp
  • Baking Powder – 1tsp

Method

  1. Grease and line a large flat baking sheet.
  2. Preheat the over to 160 degrees fan assisted (gas 4, electric 180.)
  3. combine the butter and sugar in a bowl and cream together until smooth.
  4. Mix in the egg, honey and vanilla extract.
  5. Once combined start to gradually mix in the oats followed by flour, cinnamon and baking powder. This should start to form a dough that is sticky but still a good consistency to handle.
  6. Using your hands, mould the dough in to small circular balls and place them spaced apart on the baking tray. Push down a little so you get the perfect circle when baking.
  7. Bake for 13 minutes or until the cookies are a perfect golden colour.
  8. Enjoy
