Tea and cookies

Tonight I'm enjoying a cup of chamomile tea and freshly made oat cookies. I recently discovered the below recipe which is really yummy as well as being relatively healthy. Just perfect and I'm already looking forward to morning tea tomorrow morning!


1 cup (150g) plain or gluten free flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup quick cooking oats, uncooked
¼ cup dried apricots or sultanas
¼ cup dates, finely chopped
1/3 cup lite dessicated coconut(optional)
1/3 cup (80g) brown sugar firmly packed or raw sugar
1 tablespoon each of golden syrup and honey, warmed in microwave for 15 -30 seconds until runny
1 tablespoon canola or olive oil
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla essence or 1 teaspoon each vanilla and coconut essence

Preheat oven to 190 C. Spray a large non stick baking tray with cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl combine all dry ingredients and mix well.
Step 2
Then mix together the warmed syrup and honey , oil, egg and essence. Add the wet to dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
Step 3
Using wet hands shape tablespoons of the mix into balls and flatten with a fork, placing on tray with 2 cm between each. Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool on tray.
