Today I would like to present you with one of my favourite cookie recipes: Oat Meal Cookies!

20090823-DSC_0340

These are extremely simple to do, the only challenge is not to burn them, but that’s also easy to avoid. They finish after only a few minutes, so you might as well just stick around in the kitchen and keep an eye on them.

Ingredients:

60 g oat

1 tbs flour

1 tsp baking powder

125 g sugar

50 g melted butter

1 egg

Procedure:

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celcius, preferrably using hot air. Mix all the dry ingredients together, then add the melted butter and stir it together. Stir in the egg. Place a bit less than a teaspoon big tops on a baking tray. Depending on how much you put on the teaspoon you can do it in 3×3 or 4×3, but do a 3×3 on your first tray to observe. They float out surprisingly much. Bake in the oven for 4-6 minutes. After 3 minutes you should keep a very close eye on them. They should first rise, then sink to become completely flat with only the oat sticking up. After that it only takes a few seconds until they’re done. Just watch them until the edges start turning slightly brown. This is when they’re ready. Take them out of the oven and let them cool on the baking tray for 5-10 minutes.

Keep them in an airtight container, and they’ll last for a week or two (I’ve never experienced them going bad because they dissappear so fast!)

Tips:

These cookies are great to serve with ice cream and fresh berries. If you make slightly bigger versions, you can even shape them into a bowl when they’re still warm by placing them inside a bowl and letting them cool that way. This has to be done immediately after they were taken out of the oven however, as they cool and become solid very fast.

Hope everyone has a great celebration of the year that past and the year to come today!
