Chocolate and Oat Cookies

  • It's biscuit Monday and seeing as Max doesn't like my biscuits (or any non chocolate biscuit) I thought I'd try chocolate and oat. Max won't even eat chocolate chip biscuits. The biscuit itself has to be brown. I was dubious about the oats but thought I'd try it and if all else failed, I knew Hayden would eat them.

  • So here's the recipe:
  • 100g plain flour
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 95g margarine or butter
  • 95g dark brown soft sugar
  • 85g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 90g porridge oats

  • Preheat oven to 180c
  • Cream together the margarine/butter, and sugars. Add the egg then the dry ingredients followed by the oats
Drop in small spoonfuls onto baking sheets.

Bake for 10 minutes and leave on the baking sheets to cool.

Max asked for one (good start), ate it. Asked for another, ate it. Then had another later. Yaaaaay a biscuit with oats in that he'll eat :D

And of course Hayden likes them too 

I even got to use my new biscuit barrel
