Oatmeal cookies are always pleasant treats. Chocolate chips, nuts and dried fruits are the most common ingredients added to it. I personally like my cookies soft and chewy. My taste buds tend to drift away when they are hard no matter how delicious they are. Here is a fruity oatmeal cookie recipe that I hope you enjoy. Feel free to add some nuts if desired.
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup wholemeal plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 cup mixed dried fruit
1/2 cup, firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup skimmed milk
1 egg, lightly whisked
1 ripe banana, well mashed
Preheat the oven at 200C and line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
Sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and ginger into a large mixing bowl. Add the oats, dried fruit and sugar. Mix well.
Gradually add the oil, skimmed milk and egg into the bowl while whisking the mixture with a fork. Add the mashed bananas and mix until the ingredients are well combined. Cover the bowl and refrigerate it for 30 minutes or until the cookie dough is not runny.
Spoon some dough and form small balls. Place them on the baking tray, making sure that they are 3cm apart. Lightly flatten the dough balls to form small discs.
Bake the cookie dough in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown and cooked. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool for 15 minutes before serving. Store in an airtight container or jar if desired.
