Oat cookie recipe | Baking with kids

Oat cookies are a big hit in this house. Theres something about baked oats mixed into a cookie which works so well. I make these all the time as a treat and i usually bake them with my daughter but as
she was at school my youngest came in to help. These are a really easy recipe to make with children of any age and if like me you enjoy baking together then give these a try.

  • 270g unsalted butter
  • 160 caster sugar
  • 160g soft dark brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 380g plain flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1tsp bicarbonate soda
  • 110g rolled oats
  • 220g rasins
  • ( we added half a bag of milk chocolate chips but thats optional)

  • Preheat oven to 170c (my oven always bakes better a 160)
  • put the butter and both sugars into a mixer and beat on high until light and fluffy
  • Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well and scraping the sides after each egg
  • Beat in the Vanilla extract on a low speed
  • Sift together the flour, salt, bicarbonate soda in a separate bowl and mix in the rolled oats
  • Add to the butter mixture and stir in the ruins and chocolate chips if using
  • The dough will be sticky but roll into small balls and squash slightly. They do spread so don't bake them to close together. Bake for 12-15 minutes (longer if making bigger cookies) check to see if they are golden and remove from the oven.
  • Allow to cool for a few minuets and then move to a wire rack to cool completely 

Enjoy with a glass of milk. They are perfect for a Sunday bake
