These cookies are really nice and filling, stuffed full of chia seeds, oats and raisins making them perfect for the mornings. These cookies are thick and chunky, which is why they are so perfect for the mornings if you like to be full in the mornings. I’m so pleased with this recipe, I planned it quickly and it turned out so well. I say this a lot but they are great for carrying to work as a little snack to keep you going throughout the day.
Recipe: Oatmeal and chia seed cookies (makes 8)
65g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
80g soft brown sugar
20g chia seeds
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Set the oven to gas mark 5 and line 1 tray with baking paper.
Add all of the dry ingredients to a large bowl and mix well.
Next add the vanilla extract and butter.
Mix with a spoon first then use your hands until it forms a soft dough (it may stick to the hands a little but it’s fine).
Equally scoop out the dough, role into a ball, flatten and place on the tray.
Put into the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
Leave to cool on a wire rack before eating and store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
This is a nice recipe, not to sweet but great for a treat! I love how the light coating of icing sugar adds that extra sweetness and how soft these cookies are. They taste amazing straight from the oven when slightly warm and remind me of brownies but not quite as gooey on the inside. These cookies also look really cool with colour contrast of the super dark cocoa powder against the crinkle effect from the icing sugar. I always love baking and carrying some to work for that midday snack or pick me up.
Recipe: Crinkle cookies (makes 10)
30g cocoa powder
45g soft brown sugar
45g caster sugar
30ml vegetable oil
90g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp icing sugar
Combine the cocoa powder and sugars together in a large bowl.
Mix in the oil and egg until smooth.
Sieve in the flour and baking powder to form a smooth dough, put in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line 2 trays with baking powder.
Use a tablespoon to scoop out the dough, roll with your hands to form a ball, flatten and cover with icing sugar then place in the baking tray.
Repeat, until all of the mixture is used up and bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Leave to cool slightly before eating.
We all have lazy days which is why I don’t mind using a cookie mix every once in a while. When I made these I was craving something a little sweet, whenever you are short for time or feeling lazy it’s the perfect option. These cookies were super simple to make, as you can imagine and only took 12 minutes to bake in the oven. I did leave them in for a few minutes longer to give the cookies that extra crunch, but they were still very delicious. They are definitely a treat and great for that pick me up work snack!
Hello Everyone, I hope that your day has been well.
Today I’m sharing these are cute little cookies I made recently. They are a great snack to have throughout the day and they taste delicious when slightly warm from the oven. The center is nice and soft and they are not too sweet either. I packed a few of these for my work lunch and had them in the afternoon which was perfect. This recipe is super quick to make and can be kept for up to 3 day in an airtight container.

This recipe is definitely for the coconut lovers. A quick recipe that is easy to prepare and only takes 10-15 minutes in the oven depending on how golden you would like them to be. I also thought these would make a really nice homemade gift for friends or family members. Whilst we are still in somewhat of a lockdown and we can’t see people as freely as we would like, why not bake some cookies and post them to loved ones. The recipe makes quite a lot depending on how big/small you want them to be and they will keep for a few days in an air tight container.
These cookies are great to make with kids because the recipe is simple and a perfect treat with a cup of tea! Also, the desiccated coconut is a great source of fibre.
