Today's recipe has double the goodness because, they're actually quite good! It's super easy to do too - and super easy to chow down in one go!
Remember, where there’s a whisk, there’s a way.
These cookies are the perfect afternoon snack. The raisins and oats make them a lovely chewy texture, and the result is a really filling, satisfying cookie. Chia seeds are a really great source of healthy omega-3 fats, protein and fibre. I find them really convenient as they are so easy to add in to your diet, whether it's in a smoothie, sprinkled over a salad, or used in baking, like this recipe today.
- 200g plain flour
- 100g oats
- 100g raisins
- 2 dessertspoons chia seeds
- 160g light brown sugar
- 135g butter
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- Preheat the oven to 160o fan / 180o C
- Add all the ingredients together in a large bowl, except the raisins, and beat together with an electric mixer
- Finally stir through the raisins and mix well, until the mixture comes together in a dough
- Line two/three baking trays with some greaseproof paper
- Shape the cookie dough into evenly sized balls (makes approx. 18)
- Place approximately 6 balls of cookie dough on each tray and flatten down, leaving plenty of space between each, as they will expand during baking
- Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the cookies start to brown
- Remove from the oven and leave to cool, (they should be slightly brown but still chewy!)
