Oat and Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate chip and oat cookies recipe

I have been reading lots of great blog posts recently about the chocolate chip cookie being the classic sign of a good baker or indeed the kind of baker someone is. Some people like them chewy, others buttery and some really thin Β and crispy. Sarah from the Sugar Hit wrote an AMAZING post on cookies with not only an amazing recipe but ALSO some great links to articles that talk about the science of cookies. Β Check it out if you want to learn how to make cookies exactly the way you like them.

I’m not sure if I’m a bit of an oddball, but my favourite chocolate chip cookies are ones with oats in. I love the consistency it adds, the way oats make it crumbly and rich. If anyone knows the british biscuits Hobnobs, then you know the texture I mean. Also, I’m sure subconsciously I think that adding oats turns cookies from a cheeky snack to a sumptuous nutritious meal.. like porridge or something..!

I also found a great cookie recipe from Belinda, another from Michele which has walnuts and EVEN a vegan recipe.

To anyone who is used to my ingredients being in grams, I am sorry but I have had to use cups for this recipe because I have broken my scale! Turns out dropping a scale on the floor is a bad idea… But will buy a new one next week.
