    Oat and Honey Cookies


    • 125g unsalted butter
    • 100g caster sugar
    • 75g soft brown sugar
    • 1 medium egg - lightly beaten
    • 2 tsp vanilla essence
    • 200g plain flour
    • ½ tsp baking power
    • Pinch of salt
    • 100g porridge oats
    • 2 tbsp of honey

    How to make Oat and Honey Cookies

    1. Pre-heat the oven to 190° C or Gas mark 5.
    2. Gently melt the butter and honey together in a saucepan.
    3. Mix the sugars together, pour in the melted butter and honey, add the egg and vanilla.
    4. Sift in the flour, salt and baking powder and stir together.
    5. Add the oats and mix in well, you'll have a stiff mixture.
    6. Put a sheet of baking parchment on a baking tray, this mixture will make about 3 tray fulls. The parchment will stop everything from sticking!  Dot heaped spoonfuls of the mixture onto the tray; an ice cream scoop full is about right.  Leave space between the cookies as they will spread.
    7. Place in the oven for about 10 minutes, they'll be golden brown and still soft when ready.
    8. Remove from the oven and leave on the tray for a few minutes to harden, and then remove carefully onto a wire rack to cool. Eat and enjoy!

    This recipe is really easy to vary, try using muesli instead of oats or for a treat add chocolate chips!
