Muesli Cookies?! Why Not!

posted in: Cookies, Recipe | 0
So as I was making a fruit loaf with the idea of making some cookies for our road trip! I ran out of raisins and dried fruit! How ever will make oatmeal raisinchoc chip cookies now?!So a light bulb moment occurred while staring at my cereal cupboard- hmm shall try adding muesli instead? Muesli has dried fruit =check, oats = check and of course a few other bits and bobs! So lets give it ago! ( now should I or shouldn’t tell me husband there are some nuts in the muesli?! – nah let not and see if he notices!)

So here is my made up recipe (with a little help from hummingbird )

135g of margarine
80g dark brown sugar
80g light brown sugar
Drop of vanilla extract (1/2 teaspoon – but I don’t measure)
150g muesli
25g porridge oats
100g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon or generous sprinkling of cinnamon
100g of chocolate broken up ( I used left over easter eggs!)

So firstly cream the margerine and sugars together ( still loving my kenwood kitchen chef!)

Add vanilla and egg, then gradually add flour, baking soda and dry ingredients.

Once all mixed together stir in the chocolate.

Now in a preheated oven at 170c, spoon in dollops of batter ( now I use my handy pampered chef medium scoop – similar an ice cream scoop!)

Bake for 10-12 mins oven dependent- make sure they are cooked but not over done to get the right chewiness.

Allow to cool for a minute and remove from cookie sheet and allow to cool further. Should get about 12-14 large cookies (when I say large I mean bigger the Millie’s cookies!- probably get about 15 Millie’s size cookies)
