Oat Cookies – Delicious and Light!

These oat cookies are EGG FREE! Also they’re delicious and light so you can eat a few and not feel as full! They are a bit lower on the sugar value so feel free to add more sugar to the recipe. We’re using toasted oat flour for this recipe but you can really use any type of oat flour. The toasted version just gives it a more richer and nuttier flavour than untoasted.

If you’re looking to upgrade this recipe you can also opt in to add raisins or chocolate chips. Alternatively change the spices to whatever you want for your flavour profile you’re going for! These cookies can be a bit drying so make sure to have a drink with them! We look forward to posting more oat flour recipes for the future!

Oat Cookies Recipe

Around 50 grams of that glorious butter in this recipe!

This recipe calls for a generous amount of spices, so prepare for that later! We first add 50 grams of butter to the food processor, then we add some milk.

Butter and the milk. Buttermilk! No, not really but I have used milk in a butter recipe before.

We add around 3 teaspoons of milk to the processor then start processing the mixture. Then add all of the sugar (add more if you want sweeter tasting cookies!). 2 thirds cup of sugar per 2 cups of oatmeal.

Look at that! It’s got a different look now that it’s processed!

Once its processed, proceed to moving it to a separate mixing bowl for the mixing time of adding the spices and flour!

Batter of oat cookies
Ooo! It’s starting to look like the batter now, it reminds me a bit of that crumble I made!

Before adding the flour, you’ll want to mix the spices into the flour. So get two tablespoons of cinnamon, 1 tablespoon allspice, 1 teaspoon nutmeg, 1 teaspoon mace and 1 teaspoon ginger then add it to the flour then mix. Also add a teaspoon of baking powder to it too and a pinch of salt.

So we slowly start to add the flour into the mixture bowl. A tablespoon every minute pretty much. Keep mixing until all of the oat flour is used up.

Oat cookies batter on tray
Very spread out! I’m always afraid of them sticking together so my cookies always end up far apart! Compared to other amateur bakers (like me) I can say there’s half chance of them connecting!

Well place a scoop of that delicious batter onto each corner and one in the middle, it’s usually up to preference though. These don’t rise as much so you have less to worry about but keep it spaced out nonetheless!

A delicious recipe which uses a much more lighter flour and the cookies are more fluffier!
