3 in 1 Cookie

20130509-190448.jpg

Cookies are by far the easiest thing to bake and they are delicious. I tend to think that half of it’s tastiness comes from its textural difference – the rock hard exterior and the moist, chewy interior. The fact that you can keep adding different ingredients to it and modify a basic recipe is great, especially for a baker like me. If you want to keep it simple, a plain chocolate chip cookie works just fine. If you like oatmeal and nuts, you could try a combination of both. But if you are greedy like me and want a taste of all 3, you should try my 3 in 1 cookie for sure!

Ingredients

  • 100 g walnuts
  • 200 g light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 180 g butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 250 g oats (quaker’s will work just fine)
  • 75 g chocolate chips
  • 100 g all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder

Makes approximately 24 cookies

Method

  • Preheat your oven to 180 C. Line 2 baking trays with parchment papers or you can bake them in batches.
  • Cream the butter until soft using an electric beater. Add the light brown sugar and continue to beat until they are well combined.
  • Add the egg and then the vanilla essence. Continue to beat for a further minute or two.
  • Combine the flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon powder. Add them to the butter-sugar mixture. Fold thoroughly.
  • Now, add the walnuts, oats and the chocolate chips. Combine everything together.
  • Using a scooped ladle or an ice cream scoop (if you have one), scoop and drop the cookie batter on to your sheet. Make sure there is at least a 2-inch gap between the cookies as they will spread while baking.
  • Bake for 15 minutes until the cookies have spread and they are golden in colour.
