The best homemade Oatmeal Cookies

The best Oatmeal cookies

Oatmeal cookies are the best choice if you want a treat but still want to keep the health factor up.
These cookies are delicious and convince even males and kids who normally don’t like oat’s.
I love to put cinnamon and some honey in the cookies but you go go woithout it if you dont like these ingredients


What you need:
200 g Butter (room temperature)
200 g Sugar
2.5 Tablespoon Vanilla sugar
1 Egg
250 g Oats
125 g Fluor
2 Tablespoon Backing Powder
1 Teaspoon cinnamon
2 Tablespoon honey

Optional: 1 Tablespoon chocolate Powder
Some coffee powder

Preheat the oven to 190-200 C ()


 1. Combine the Butter, Sugar, Vanilla Sugar and the egg and mix until it reaches a smooth texture.

2. Add the remaining ingredients and mix for another 3-4 minutes.

The texture should be somewhat like mousse au chocolat or a little more firm.


This is how the dough looks like

3. Place the dough on a baking sheet. Always 2 Teaspoon as 1 cookie. You don’t need to shape it in any way as the dough will shape itself during the baking process. Put 20-25 cookies per sheet and keep a distance between each cookie.

4. Bake the cookies for about 10-12 minutes.

They will still be a bit soft when you take them out, so just leave them to cool and they will get hard by themselves.

Enjoy J
