I was experimenting in my kitchen yesterday and I'm telling you, these cookies are delicious goodness. I made four trays of them for my friends and they disappeared on me 0_0 I tried only, like, three:S
Time to make a new batch, don't you think? Here's the recipe:
(Makes about 50)
230 g butter
90 g caster sugar
100 g dark brown sugar
5 ml vanilla essence
350 g plain flour
5 g soda powder
a pinch of salt
15 g oat cereal
15 g ground cacao nibs
15 g raisins
80 g finely chopped dark chocolate
20 g cacao powder
20 g chopped roasted hazelnuts
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Cover the baking tray with baking paper. With an electric mixer, cream the butter and both sugars together until light and fluffy.
In another bowl, mix the egg and the vanilla essence, then gradually beat into the butter mixture. Sift over the flour, soda, salt and stir. Add the cereals, cacao nibs, raisins, pieces of dark chocolate, cacao powder, and hazelnuts. Mix to combine well.
Place heaped teaspoonfuls of the dough 5 cm apart on the baking paper. Bake the oven until lightly colored, about 15-20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
These cookies are a great comfort food, because you can tell yourself that because there's oat cereal, raisins and dark chocolate in them, they are actually healthy, so you can eat a whole bunch of them.
