Best oatmealcookies!

Crunchy on the outside, still soft and moist on the inside, and a little bit chewy – in my opinion this is exactly how oatmeal cookies are supposed to taste! 
I had to guard the last ones with eagle eyes in order for them to make it into the picture – that’s how yummy they are. 

In time for the week-end, easy-peasy preparation and – credit where credit is due – a recipe developed by Noelle: there is nothing better! 

Chewy oatmeal cookies 

1 cup quick oats (if you prefer, you can mix  ¾ cup quick and ¼ cup old-fashioned oats)
1 cup ground nuts or shredded coconut 
2 eggs
10 ½ Tbsp very soft butter
5 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla powder
2 Tbsp flour
1 Tbsp baking powder

Optional: 1 handful of dried fruit, such as raisins, cranberries, etc. – I chopped some dried, soft apricots and added them. 

First mix butter and eggs, then add all other ingredients. 
Place small heaps of dough on a cookie sheet with the help of 2 teaspoons, flatten well and bake in the preheated oven at 350° for about 10-15 minutes(baking time depends on the size of the cookies). 

If you want to raise the health factor, reduce the amount of nuts or coconut and mix in some flaxseed or wheat germ instead. The only thing that’s important is that the total amount remains at 1 cup.

Or you can add 1 cup of chocolate chips instead. 
Freely adapted from Ben, who recently looked at food pyramids: 
"One of them showed pictures of fruit, vegetables and healthy fats such as fish and olive oil, etc. The other one showed fast food, croissants and other sweet things.” 
Me: "OK? Now what?” 
Ben: "Now I REALLY feel like eating a croissant!” 

Wishing you the best of all week-ends!


The cup with the small goat (or other animals) is available at La Maison.
