Oat and raisin cookies - chewy and mahoosive!

Hands up... who likes cookies! 

I lurve cookies but in particular the massive chewy ones.

It took me years and a few disasters but I think it is safe to say that I have now cracked it! I can make delicious chewy cookies and these oat and raisin ones did not disappoint. 

fresh stack!

Oat and raisin is a classic flavour, so whip up a batch and dig in. These will not disappoint! 
As you know, I do my best to stay on the "clean eating" but life is about balance so a cookie every now and again isn't going to kill you! 

huge and ready to eat


125 grams of butter, softened
100 grams of light brown soft sugar
125 grams of caster sugar*
225 grams of self raising flour
½ teaspoon of salt
1 beaten egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence/extract
2 heaped tablespoons of rolled oats 

a handful of raisins

First up, pre heat the oven to 180 degrees

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and both sugars - once creamed, add the egg and vanilla

Next sift in the flour and salt and mix together

Add the oats and raisins (technically healthy?!) and mix in well - you want to make sure all the cookies have the delicious oats and juicy raisins! 

Get the whole of the cookie mixture and roll into a very thick sausage (about the diameter of a mug) and slice into 12 or so cookies

Using the palm of your hand, press them down. Scrap the cookie cutter - 
I think it really doesn’t matter that the cookies aren’t perfectly circular, I think that the jiggered edges gives a little character!

Place on greaseproof paper on a baking tray and bake for 7 -8 minutes. I know it doesn’t sound very long and when you take them out they will look a little undercooked, but leave them a minute or two to cool and transfer to a wire rack.

this is how to cut them!

These will be loved by everyone so perfect for parties, bake sales or a treat in your lunch box! 

How about trying these amazing peanut butter cookies or milk chocolate chip ones?
