Nan’s Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Apologies, this one isn’t out of a cook book but from my dear old nan.

Nanny Pat taught me to bake so it only feels right that my first bake on the blog would be one of her recipes.

These cookies are delicious as well as not being too bad for you and this recipe makes around 25 cookies (depending on how big you like your biscuit)

I use normal oats and veggie oil but if you prefer you could always substitute. Groundnut oil would be lovely with these flavours!

Inspired by Great British Bake Off…

Ready, Steady, Baaakkee…

I start out by mixing all of my ‘wet’ ingredients first.

Then I add the flour, oats and bi-carb soda. It will look like your mix is far too dry but give it some with a wooden spoon and get all that pesky flour mixed in and you will be left with a sticky bowl full o’ yumminess.

Blob it out using a tablespoon onto trays covered in baking parchment. I’m not too precious with the way it looks but if your out to impress you could mould the dough with rings.

Once cooled, mine look like little boulders of oaty goodness. Packed full of raisins they are brill for a burst of energy that we all need with the 3pm cuppa.

They are not over sweet so if you’ve got a real thing for sugar these might not be the cookie for you but I think they are perfect for any teatime craving.

Do you have any brilliant biscuit or cookie recipe? or if you do give Nan’s cookie’s a go drop me a line and let me know what you think.
