Cookies will make you a winner in the office any day. We don’t have biscuits in the tea room at our work, so when someone comes in with a sweet treat to enjoy with tea or coffee they are a hero for at least a day.
They may not look too pretty, but, these cookies have oats in them, so I like to believe that by eating them I’m doing myself more good than if I was to pass them over. They are super quick to whip up, particularly if you’ve got an electric beater. The only tricky bit if you don’t have a mixer is creaming the butter and sugar until pale – but good for a work out. You deserve another cookie if you’re mixing by hand!
Start by preheating your oven to 180°C.
100g unsalted butter
50g caster sugar
75g brown sugar
75g plain flour
75g rolled oats
35g cocoa powder
½tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
65g milk chocolate chips
65g white chocolate chips
In the electric mixer beat butter and sugars until pale. This will take several minutes so while waiting sift together, in a separate bowl, the flour, bicarbonate of soda and cocoa powder. Add the oats and mix to combine.
Once the butter and sugar is thick and pale, with the mixer still going, add the vanilla extract. Once that is combined add the egg. Once combined add the dry ingredients on a slow speed. Remove the bowl and fold through the choc chips by hand until well combined.
On lined baking tray, dollops on balls of mixture (about 1 tbsp worth). Press them down only just slightly as the cookies will continue to flatten and spread while baking. Bake for 12-15 minutes. If cooked just right they will be slightly chewy…and DELICIOUS!
