Chewy oat cookies
Need a quick snack for the weekend? Then these cookies are the right choice for you! Easy to make, and you probably have most of the ingredients in your cupboard. We just love it how easy recipes can be… Just check what you have in your cupboard and start experimenting. That’s how these cookies were created! Do you have extra ingredients like dried cranberries, raisins or maybe coconut? Then that’s also delicious to add to these cookies. The secret ingredient in this recipe is Dutch ‘appelstroop’, or in English that would be apple syrup. In The Netherlands we love to put this on a sandwich or a cracker. But apparently, it works amazing in baking recipes! It has a sweet and sour taste, and it caramelizes a bit in the oven when you add it to this cookies. Delicious!
Ingredients for 5 big cookies:
- 50 g of oats
- 30 g of whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- 1 tbsp of cinnamon
- 1 tbsp of cocoa powder
- A pinch of salt
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp of Dutch ‘appelstroop’ (apple syrup)
If you don’t have this it will probably also work with honey, date syrup or peanutbutter
- 1 tbsp of coconut oil
Preheat the oven at 170 degrees Celsius. Add in a bowl all the dry ingredients (oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, cocoa powder and salt). Mix this together with either a fork or a whisk. Melt the coconut oil and put this in a separate small bowl. Add the egg and appelstroop (apple syrup) and whisk it well with a fork until everything is well blended. Now add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk it together. Put a baking sheet on a baking tray and make the cookies or with your hands (they are quite sticky) or with two forks, and put them directly on the baking tray. Make them as big as you like! 🙂 This has to go in the oven for about 20 minutes. Let it cool down a bit before serving. Enjoy!
Options: Add some chocolate chunks or dried fruit for the extra touch.
