Oatmeal is a wonderful food – low in fat, high in fibres, and helps lower cholesterol level. Eating it plain can be a bit boring, but thankfully oatmeal is also one of the most versatile food products. There are a lot of ways to cook and modify oatmeal – here are five of my favourite recipes that you could try.
There’s nothing really exciting about eating oatmeal. Most of the time it’s like eating glue. You know all the health benefits of eating oatmeal, but you’re still not convinced even after adding a drizzle of honey. Well, have no fear because I have a tasty and chewy cookie recipe that could spice up your oatmeal life.(PS: this recipe has no affiliation with the musical duo ‘Hall and Oates’, it’s just a friendly pun)
3 eggs (beaten)
1 tsp of vanilla
1 cup of butter
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of white sugar
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of cinammon
2 tsp of baking soda
2 cups oatmeal
3/4 cup of chopped nuts
Mix eggs and vanilla together and let it stand for 1 hour.
Cream together butter and sugar.
Add flour, salt, cinnamon and soda and mix.
Blend in egg-raisin mixture, oatmeal, and chopped nuts.
Dough will stiffen.
Heap teaspoons of dough mixture onto ungreased cookie baking paper. Roll into balls and flatten slightly onto tray.
Bake at 176 degrees celsius until brown, dark and chewy (12-13 minutes).
Cool your cookies on a cooling rack and enjoy these bad boys.
