Time for Oatmeal Wafers

Ready in: 17 min
Yields: About 25 cookies


  • 75g butter
  • 1 dl sugar
  • 1 dl oats
  • 1.5 msk milk

  • 1 tsk ginger
  • 0.25 tsk baking powder

Instructions for Swedish Oatmeal Wafers

  1. Preheat oven to 200 ° C (392F I think, but you better double check it). Take out a pot, it will be use to make the batter. Melt the butter in the pot. Turn off the heat and remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the sugar, oatmeal, flour, milk, syrup, ginger and baking powder until the batter is smooth.
  2. Spoon out the batter, about ½ tablespoon of each flame, with quite a large distance on a baking sheet with baking paper, because the batter floats out when the cookies are baked. For a normal sized oven you need 2-3 plates to a batch of Swedish Oatmeal Wafers.
  3. The Oatmeal Wafers Bake in the oven at 200 ° C for about 5 minutes or until they are nice golden color. In hot air oven it's 175 ° C for about 8 minutes. Let the havreflarn cool down a few minutes on the baking paper.
  4. Loosen them from the paper, if you want flat cookies let them lie there until they cool down, but if you want curved cookies then put them on a wooden stick, brush handles or the like and let them cool down there.
