For those days when the butter is gone, or you feel like a substantially oaty snack, or you just feel like making a quick batch of cookies. Actually, I think I might whip some up now*…
*Not actually now, as I’m in an exam (LAST EXAM FOR 6 MONTHS 😀 [hopefully]). I’m not really here, you see. This is me-as-of-6 days ago, speaking to you… I hope I’ve not died in the meantime; that could be a bit awkward. Anyhoo, you get the picture. Quick and easy and I think I’ll make them some time soon in my endeavours to use up stuff in the kitchen before I say sayonara to my lovely flat and migrate South-East** for the summer.
**Nowhere exotic, just the other side of Glasgow.(makes 24-34; can be halved)
320g brown sugar
160 ml vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla
2 large eggs
2 tsp baking powder
250g plain flour
160g dark chocolate, cut into chunks
- Mix together the sugar, oil, vanilla and eggs.
- When well mixed, add the baking powder and stir well.
- Stir in add the flour until absorbed.
- Stir in the oats and chocolate chips.
- Scoop big teaspoons or small tablespoons of dough onto greased cookie sheets, spacing about 2 inches apart. These don’t spread much.
- Bake for 10-13 minutes at Gas Mark 4 / 180oC. Cookies are done when edges are slightly browned.
