Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies


FullSizeRenderIt’s a Sunday which means one of two things; a day in the local enjoying a roast dinner and a couple of cheeky pints or a day with the oven mitts on baking some tasty delights. After failing to find my all-time favorite cookie, the chocolate chip Hobknob, in the shop this morning, I decided this Sunday would be the latter and that I would make my own chocolate chip oat cookies.

Unfortunately it wasn’t the usual calm Sunday baking session. Cookies are dead easy to make but for some reason I have had a bit of an off day, not because the cookies turned out badly but because the kitchen was an absolute mess by the time I had finished. I am normally a well-oiled machine once I am in ‘the zone’ but I was pretty clumsy today. First I dropped a cup of butter on the floor then I opened a bag of oats a little too enthusiastically resulting in the scene to the right. I will be finding little oats in nooks and crannies for months.

Fortunately the end result has not been affected and these chocolate chip oat cookies are simply mouthwatering – especially when enjoyed with a glass of milk while they are still warm and gooey.

To get a nice knobbly cookie do not role the dough into a smooth ball, instead break a small section from the dough and roughly shape before placing onto your baking mat
