Easy Oat Cookies

What does one make when one wants to bake Anzac Biscuits, but one doesn't have golden syrup on hand???  OR, when one just wants to bake some super easy, super tasty, super quick, buttery, oaty, biscuity goodness with ingredients almost guaranteed to be in your pantry???

Easy Oat Cookies


    •    200 grams butter
    •    320 grams plain flour
    •    250 grams raw sugar
    •    100 grams rolled oats
    •    1 teaspoon bicarb soda
    •    1 large egg


1. Chop the butter into pieces and place in the TM bowl. Melt for 4 minutes at 50ºC on speed 1.
2. Add the flour, sugar, oats, bicarb & egg and mix for 30 seconds on interval speed (using the spatula to help incorporate the ingredients).
3. Roll into balls about the size of a walnut, flatten slightly, and bake in a preheated oven set for 180ºC for 15 minutes.
4. Leave on oven tray until firm enough to move to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Makes about 30 biscuits.
If the balls are not flattened, the biscuits retain quite a rounded shape and are more 'cakey' in texture. If a crisper biscuit is desired, flatten the balls quite a lot.
These would be delicious with added sultanas or choc chips.

Happy cookie days!
