These cookies are amazingly easy to make, and have a crumbly-cakey texture to them. Quick and easy and PERFECT with warm milk, natural yoghurt, or just a tastey and healthy treat. This recipe makes 10-12 (depending on how big you want your cookies!) but the amounts can be easily doubled to make larger amounts for more people. Instead of raisins, try chopped dates, small pieces of ginger, chocolate chips...go crazy!
50g low-fat margarine or butter
50g caster sugar
1tbsp set honey OR dessert spoon of runny honey
1 tsp cinnamon powder
50g wholemeal flour
1tsp baking powder
80g porridge oats
Heat oven to 180 C / 160 C (fan assisted) / gas 4.
Grease a large baking sheet
In a large bowl, mix the margarine/butter and sugar together until soft, then beat in the honey (using an electric whisk makes it quick and easy!)
Add the egg and cinnamon powder and mix well
In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, oats and raisins and mix together before adding to the butter mixture.
Drop heaped dessertspoonfuls of the cookie dough onto the baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden
Remove them from the oven, they should be golden but will still seem a tiny bit soft to the touch. Leave them on the tray for a minute (this lets them settle slightly) before transferring them to a cooling tray to completely cool. Store in an air tight container or (if you're anything like me) dive straight in!
