Cranberry Chocolate Oat Cookies


As mentioned in my previous post, easy recipes sometimes provide the best results.

This is a well tried recipe. I got this from Little corner. who got it from another blogger who got it from another forum!

I simply can't get enough of this little cookie. Best of all, I used olive oil and not butter-so even healthier. More reason to pop one into your mouth right? Instead of making cranberry shortbread, I'm probably baking this cookie and use cranberries instead! In fact, I will be baking 2 types of cookies for Christmas/engagement party, with the 2nd one revealed later next week.


My version for Christmas is slightly different with the addition of rum and cranberries but it's delicious and definitely a keeper. Why buy cookies when you can make such easy ones (even without using a beater?). You can be sure about what you place in your mouth.



Cranberries chocolate oat cookies
(A)
1 egg, beaten
125ml Olive oil

1/4 cup of sugar

(B)
1 1/4 cup self-raising/rising flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup cranberries (soaked in rum for 1/2 hr. you can obmit the rum)

Method:

1. Mix (A) in a bowl. Add in (B). Mix well.

2. Use your hands, roll and press into balls. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

3. Bake at preheated 180C oven for 15 minutes. O

4. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes before transferring it to cool completely on a wire rack. Store in air-tight container.

Hehe, maltesers. Hmm.. did you try it, did it work? Cos am not sure if they will melt and become flat. Ya, I agree with you that these days I like cup measurements, too lazy to measure. Haha.
