Oat & Raisin Cookies

We all love a cookie in our house and they don’t last long thats for sure! These oat & raisin cookies are so delicious. I once made a huge batch (this recipe x4) and froze 3 logs of cookies in the freezer to take one out each week of the month. This works really well for school packed lunch treats and snacks and now that the kids are homeschooling for a while its the perfect treat to take out the night before.

These cookies are made with spelt flour so that makes them healthy right?! ha ha! You can also substitute the spelt flour for normal and the raisins for other small pieces of dried fruit. Dried apricots or cherries would work really well here instead too.

Oat & Raisin Cookies

100g of plain spelt flour

100g golden caster sugar

75g of oats

1tsp of bicarbonate of soda

2 tbsp of golden syrup

100g of unsalted butter

25g of raisins or other dried fruit

Preheat the oven to 160oc. Grease a baking tray.

Mix together the flour, sugar, oats and bicarbonate of soda.

Melt the butter and golden syrup in a pan on a medium heat.

Add the melted mixture to the flour mixture and stir through.

Mix in the raisins and combine to form a soft cookie dough.

Split the mixture in half and half again until you get 12 small balls.

Place about 6 on a baking sheet and flatten slightly with a fork. They will spread out so keep well apart.

Bake for 12-15 minutes and then repeat with another batch.

Leave to cool to firm up. Enjoy!
