Have you ever tried to make cookies with oats? At first they might not seem as attractive as chocolate cookies but you can make them really yummy.

Below is my recipe for this cookies - I wanted something really simple, healthy and quick to make at the same time. And these cookies are all these. And I must admit they are quite addictive too. First one or two seem a bit ordinary, but then you'll easily come back for more and more until you'll find out you ate all the cookies yourself.

They are made of ingredients we all have at home already and you can add some of your own too - for instance chocolate chips, crushed almonds or nuts, more or less sugar and so on. I usually use white flour, but you can use mixture of half white and half wholemeal flour. Or replace oil with butter for instance.

The main and the most healthy ingredient are oats. I put them in the mixture as much as flour, but you can add less oats and more flour. Oats are really healthy food - they lower cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure and they have lower glycemic index than white flour.

If you are afraid that it might be too much oatmeal, you can simply add less of it and add more flour (for instance 2/3 cup of oats and 1 1/3 cup of flour).

And now let's take a look at these yummy cookies.

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 40 min
Yields: 36 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 - 4 tablespoons oil or butter
  • 1/2 cups water

Instructions

  1. After you add all ingredients and mix them together with a spoon, add water and mix again. The mixture shouldn't be too hard and not too soft either.
  2. Now you just take a spoon and put little pieces of dough to the sheet pan. Bake them approximately 30 - 35 minutes at 350 degrees until they become light brown at the edges. If they are smaller, bake them less, for only 20 - 25 minutes. But don't leave them too long because they might become hard to eat. And that's it.
