Chocolate Oat Cookies
« on: May 12, 2013, 11:29:39 am »
Chocolate Oat Cookies (Converted from Breville website)
Makes approx 24

Ingredients

200g dark chocolate (or use choc chips)
100g rolled oats
140g SR flour
15g cocoa powder
125g butter
70g caster sugar
70g brown sugar
1 egg

Method

Roughly chop chocolate either by hand or in TM, set aside. (Cookies are big enough to take fairly decent chunks)

Weigh in the oats, cocoa and flour and turbo once or twice, set aside. (I like the oats to be visible)

Weigh in the sugar and butter and mix at speed 5 until creamed, scraping down the bowl as necessary.

Add the egg and mix for another few seconds.

Add the chocolate and flour mix and mix on speed 3 reverse until combined. Mixture will be very thick.

Roll into golf ball sized pieces and place on trays lined with baking paper. Flatten slightly with a fork, leaving enough room to spread.

Bake at 180 degrees C for 10 to 15 minutes or until just cooked. Biscuits will harden as they cool.

I sometimes add chopped nuts just to increase the antioxidants!  ;D



members' comments

Amy - I wanted to make them a little healthier so I used 1 large banana (85g) and therefore only 40g butter. I reduced each sugar by 10g and I used half choc chips, half walnuts. Delicious. I will try them the original way next time so I can compare but the banana I added goes really well with the oats and chocolate, yum!

Denzelmum - Made this for DD's lunch box. Cut down choc chip and sugar to 100g and turn out perfect.

deedub - used 100g of milk choc chips and didn't bother blitzing the oats/flour/cocoa first, just added it in after the egg and blitzed at sp5 for a few seconds, then added choc chips & mixed on reverse. I love these - just the right amount of sweetness for me, and the kids pronounced them 'delicious'! Great recipe, will be making regularly - thank you!

I'm making these right now because they look so yummy and I want to bake something ;D

I wanted to make them a little healthier, so I used 1 large banana (85g) and therefore only 40g butter. I reduced each sugar by 10g. And I used half choc chips, half walnuts.

Can't wait for them to bake, I'll come back and post photos later :D

Exactly CC, he's into helping in the kitchen lately - his job is to move from the tray to cooling rack :)

Definitely one for when we get home.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
