Recipe: Oat Cookies

I thought I would start sharing the recipes that I create, or adapt.

The 1st one is some very simple oat cookies. I was fancying something of a treat to nibble on, but didn't want the sugar laden biscuits that are bought. As I have mentioned before, I am diabetic. It is a myth that I cannot eat sugar, it just needs to be controlled. Making my own cookies is a way of controlling it, when I fancy something sweet.

This recipe makes 10 little cookies.

Simple Oat Cookies

Ingredients:

50g Porridge Oats (I used smart price)
50g Plain Flour
40g Soft Brown Sugar
70g Lower fat Butter

Method:

Preheat oven to gas mark 6 / 400f / 200c
Cream together the butter and sugar, until smooth. Then mix in the oats and flour.
Give it all a good mix together, you will find it starts to lump together, as long as all the ingredients are blended well, that is OK.
Once you can see its all mixed, use your hands to get it into sticky ball of dough. I will warn you, it's quite a wet mixture, so it does get a little messy.
Line a tin with greaseproof paper. Take off pieces and ball them up, approximately 1" in diameter.
To flatten into cookie shape, take a cup of water and a fork. Dip the fork in the water the press down one way, then repeat creating a cross.
Bake in the top of the oven for 15/20 minutes, until they brown a little. 
Leave to cool, before trying.

These are not really crispy cookies, but can be if you leave them a little longer. 
Little A who doesn't try anything, actually ate one (with a bit of nutella on)!
