It’s time for a baking recipe, and I’ve got a good one to share with you today. These oatmeal cookies are a little sticky but have a nice bite to them, and a great taste too: honey and a variation of nuts. Oatmeal is quite healthy, tasty and it leaves you satisfied for a long time. That’s why I like to use it so much! (See: apple crumble oatmeal pie for breakfast and homemade granola for example) Last week I tried a recipe of +Chickslovefood for easy oatmeal cookies. Because I used honey as sweetener and coconut oil to stick them together it’s not that unhealthy, either. What’s not to love…
I’ll be sharing more baking recipes with you, too: Gijs (the boyfriend) just started with his placement and I thought I’d give him some healthy snacks for in the train, like this cookie. Also, its my birthday next week!
This recipe is enough for around 5 large cookies. You can double it if you want a bigger batch of course!
What you’ll need:
– oatmeal, 100g
– coconut oil, 60ml
– honey or other sweetener, 40g
– nuts, 30g (I used walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds and pecans)
– 1 egg
– optional: dried fruits (raisins, apricots, maybe some coconut..)
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
- First, mix the coconut oil, honey and the egg together.
- Chop up the nuts, and toss them in the mixture together with the oatmeal and dried fruits if you’re using them. Add some cinnamon to taste as well, I probably used 2 teaspoons.
- Use a spoon to scoop the mixture onto parchment paper. Smooth them out so that you have nice round cookie shapes: the mixture won’t deform like normal cookies would!
- Place them in the oven for 12 minutes. Let the cookies cool down, and they are done!
How easy is that?! It only took me a few minutes to weigh and mix the ingredients, then I just popped them into the oven and I could start cleaning the kitchen. Very convenient if you want to quickly prepare some freshly baked cookies!
