We've had a busy week visiting and being visited. I've already posted a few of the bits and pieces I baked during the week so I managed to convince one of the friends we called in on to share a recipe here on the blog.


We spent Monday morning with Donna and her boys - the kids had a lovely time playing and Donna and I enjoyed a cup of coffee and tea respectively and a good gossip. We also enjoyed some yummy cookies that Donna had baked just for our visit and I twisted her arm until she sent me a pic and the recipe.


Oat and Raisin Choc-Chip Cookies
(probably from an issue of Super Food Ideas magazine ?)



Makes 28

170g butter
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup brown sugar
½ cup raisins (used sultanas instead and they were fab)
½ cup chocolate bits
½ cup desiccated coconut

1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper. Place butter and honey in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes or until butter is melted. Remove from heat. Allow to cool.

2. Sift flour and bicarb into large bowl. Add husks from sieve. Stir in oats, sugar, raisins, choc bits and coconut. Add cooled butter mixture. Stir until well combined.

3. Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls. Place on prepared trays, allowing 3 cm for spreading. Flatten slightly with fingertips. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, swapping trays after 10 minutes, or until biscuits are golden. Allow to cool on trays. Serve.

Thanks for your comment - you were definitely the inspiration! Sorry, irrelevant to the cookies (which look great).
