Cashew Nut and Oatmeal Cookies

Hello Everyone, I hope your day has been well.

I just realised that much of my baking these days contains oats, I don’t know what it is about oats but they go so well with many baked foods like cookies, biscuits and bars. I’ve mentioned it quite a few times already but oats are a great source of dietary fibre and have a range of cholesterol lowering properties. These cookies are perfect for the morning as slow releasing energy or throughout the day as a tasty pick me up. I’ve added just enough sugar for sweetness and the cashew nuts remain smooth once baked. Cashew nuts are full of healthy nutrients and a great source of protein making them very popular with vegans.

Recipe: Cashew nut and oatmeal cookies (makes 18)

Ingredients

100g plain flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
Pinch of salt
1/4 tsp bicarbonate soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
110g butter
100g soft brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
130g oats
50g cashew nuts, chopped
2 Brazil nuts, chopped

Method

  • Preheat your oven to gas mark 6 and line to trays with baking paper.
  • To a small bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, salt, bicarbonate soda and baking powder.
  • In another larger bowl, cream the butter and sugar together then mix in the egg and vanilla extract.
  • Gently mix the flour mixture into the larger bowl, add the oats, and both nuts.
  • Use a tea spoon to evenly add the mixture to both baking trays, leaving enough room for the to slightly spread.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, swapping the trays round after 10 minutes. They may seem soft but will go firmer once cooled down.

Apple Crumble

Hello Everyone, I hope your day has been well.

So I made an apple crumble one Sunday morning and I realised I’ve never shared a recipe on my blog. I don’t make crumbles that often however, I’ve made quite a few apple based dishes in the past. This recipe was perfect for me and my family, not too much apple and a golden crumble topping with the addition of oats for extra crunch. Apple crumble is a great autumn dessert because it’s so warming and apples are in season. Not only that, it’s super versatile and can be eaten alone, with custard, ice cream or clotted cream. Why not make this for your dessert today!

Recipe: Apple crumble (serves 4)

Ingredients

4 apples, wash and peel

1/3 tsp cinnamon powder

125g plain flour

50g oats

80g brown sugar

110g butter, cubed

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 6 and get a medium sized square oven dish.
  • Wash and peel the apples, slice thinly and put into the over dish, sprinkling over the cinnamon.
  • In a large bowl, mix the flour, oats and sugar together then rub in the butter using your fingers until it resembles large breadcrumbs.
  • Sprinkle the flour mix over the apples and bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes until golden brown on top.
  • Leave to cool down slightly before eating alone, with custard, ice cream or clotted cream.

Peanut Butter and Raisin Flapjacks

Hello Everyone, I hope your day has been well.

I used to bake flapjacks so often when I was much younger as it’s pretty simple to make. It’s actually been a while so I thought I’d switch it up using peanut butter (PB) and raisins for that lovely balance of sweet and salty. I’ve used smooth peanut butter but I feel like crunchy PB would work just as well. This is quite a sweet treat so be sure to eat with moderation, try offering some slices to your friends, family, and work colleagues!

This recipe is full of many great ingredients such as PB, oats and raisins. A great snack idea and full of protein for that extra burst of energy. These flapjacks taste so good and you get all of the flavours with a subtle hint of PB, also try them whilst slightly warm for a comforting dessert along with a scoop of ice cream.

Recipe: Peanut butter and raisin flapjacks (makes 9)

Ingredients

100g honey

100g soft brown light sugar

75g butter

75g smooth peanut butter

150g oats

50g raisins

Method

  • Set the oven to gas mark 4, line a small oven tray with baking paper and set aside.
  • In a small pot, add the honey, sugar, butter and peanut butter and place on a gentle heat until melted.
  • Put the oats and raisins into a large bowl and pour over the melted honey mixture, combining everything together.
  • Place into the oven for 25 minutes until golden brown but still slightly soft.
  • Wait at least 10 minutes for the flapjacks to cool down, before cutting into 9 bars.
