How to make oat rolls

Updated on April 15, 2014

We all love to eat them and to make them

The small rolled oat balls!

Your hands are sticky, the children are messy, the faces are brown and the mass that from the beginning was supposed to make 30 balls lasted only for 10. The rest is eaten or just spread in the kitchen.

In the end of this lens I have posted some of the ingrediences you will need!

I am talking about Havrebollar, Chokladbollar or in English Oat rolls. When the balls are formed you can cover them with pearl sugar or cocos flakes. One recipe even suggests colour coverings with sprinkles any kind.

When the weather is bad and the children are restless. Then you suggest that they make Oat rolls. The sizes and recipes can vary - I will prestent some of them here.

The most easy and common recipe

Here is how you do it:

50 g - 2 oz-butter

1 dl - 1 gill- sugar

3 tablespoons cacao

2,5 dl - 2gills-oat flakes (rolled oats)

Pearl sugar or shredded coconut

Mix all the ingrediants. Roll little balls tendrerly with hands or with spoons. Then turn them carefully in either shredded coconut or the pearl sugar. Put them on a plate and in the fridge for a while.

I can honestly say - sometimes they were gone before they were cold =D=D


Short video that shows the messy hands =)

Another yummy recipe

Oat balls

100 g (3 ounce) Butter or margarine

3 dl (1 pint) Rolled oats

1 1/2 dl (half a pint) Sugar

1 msk (table spoon) Cacao

1 msk (table spoon) boiled coffee

Shredded cocos (or pearl sugar)

Melt the butter - or at least use very soft butter. Mix everything and make the little round balls that you turn in the cocos or sugar. Keep the finished balls cool.

Put a hang lock on the fridge =)

Luxury rolls for a gift

Make the oat balls and cover them with coloured sprinkles.

Look at the one with choclate ants on them!

Put each one in a little paper cup and put them carefully in a gift box. Lovely present.

Remember to keep them cooled!

How to Make Swedish Oatmeal Wafers

This is a traditional Swedish recipe; these thin wafers make a great treat when served with ice cream.

You need:

100 gram butter or margarine

3 deciliter oat flakes

1 egg

1½ deciliter sugar

1 tablespoon flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat the oven to 350ºF/175ºC.

Combine the ingredients in a heavy-based saucepan.

Bring to a boil. Drop large spoonfuls of batter onto a pre-greased baking sheet/tray.

Make about 9 wafers per sheet. The wafers need plenty of space to expand and heat from cooking will continue this process.

Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 6-7 minutes.

Remove from the oven and before they are cool, hang the coockies over a bottle or a roll to get the bended shape.

Let them cool completely there.

Oatmeal cookies

If you're on a low-sodium diet, you can omit the salt.

To make bar cookies, press dough onto the bottom of an ungreased 9-by-13-inch baking pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until light golden brown. Cool completely, then cut into bars.

For variation, add 1 cup raisins or chopped nuts or stir in 1 cup semisweet chocolate, butterscotch, or peanut butter chips and omit the spices.

Things You'll Need:

1 1/4 c. softened butter or margarine

3/4 c. packed brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla

1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

3 c. rolled oats

Heat oven to 375 degrees F and line some cookie sheets with baking parchment - or grease some cookie sheets, or use nonstick cookie sheets.

Beat together butter or margarine and sugars in a large bowl until creamy.

Add egg and vanilla and beat well.

Combine flour, baking soda, salt and spices in a smaller bowl.

Add flour mixture to the butter/sugar mixture and blend well.

Stir in oats.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto cookie sheet.

Bake 8 to 9 minutes for a chewy cookie or 10 to 11 minutes for a crisp cookie.

It may be a surprise to learn that some of the best-tasting cookies and bars can be made without turning on the oven. No magic is involved, just a few time-honored techniques for producing irresistible goodies while the kitchen—not to mention the cook—remains cool. With an assortment of cereals, crushed graham crackers, cookie crumbs, butter, nut butters, cream cheese, and chocolate (and some delicious options for adding flavor such as dried fruits, nuts, toffee, coffee, vanilla, spices, and more), no-bake cookies are a matter of mere minutes in the making.

A compact book with a nice selection of recipes and a huge number of them for such a small book. Each recipe comes with a colored picture. Some recipes have a small description but with the colored pictures, for many an introduction is not necessary and they don't bother. Nicely laid out with metric and imperial measurements (no conversions or translation needed). I can believe this book has been around for 63 years.


Especially if you tried one or more of the recipes.

I would really love to hear from you

      It looks like the kind of cookies I make, except I just flatten them up instead of rolling them up.

      WOW! This recipe is so perfect for Grandma's little kitchen helpers. First I need to find a chart to convert the measurements. Do you have one?
