Ingredients

  • Rolled oats – 175g (1 + 3/4 cups)
  • White spelt flour – 55g (1/2 cup)
  • Wholegrain spelt flour – 55g (1/2 cup)
  • Light Brown Sugar – 115g (1/2 cup)
  • Melted Unsalted butter – 115g
  • Pinch salt
  • Honey or natural liquid sweetener – 3 tbsp
  • Bicarbonate of soda – 1 tsp
  • Vanilla Extract – 1 tsp
  • Water – 1 tbsp for rolling

Method for the base recipe

  1. OVEN – preheat 180˚C/350˚F/ Gas 4 and line two baking sheets with baking paper.
  2. MIX in a large bowl oats, flours and sugar.
  3. MELT butter and honey together gently in a small saucepan. Add bicarbonate of soda and vanilla then mix together.
  4. POUR over the liquid mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients, then combine until all mixed through. Now create your own version. Add in your favourite nuts, seeds, fruit and or spices.
  5. MIX through your extras, if you have time rest and chill the cookie dough in the fridge for 20-30 minutes. If not scoop out cookie dough with an ice cream scoop and press to form a ball if the mixture is crumbly add a tablesopon of water to your dough. Also add flour or water to your hands to help form the cookie. Gently press the top of the cookie dough with a fork or your fingers to flatten slightly.
  6. BAKE for 10 minutes until golden brown. Depending on your extras the time may take a little longer. NB if using chocolate chips they may only take 8 minutes, more fruit and they may need 12-15 minutes. If you like you could flatten the cookies when they come out of the oven too.
  7. COOL for at least 5 minutes on the baking tray before transferring onto a wire rack to cool.
