Oatmeal cookies


Christmas is coming and what’s more Christmassy than cookies?!

Actually, the recipe that I am about to give you is not typical of this period, it does not smell of winter or Christmas, in fact, it is a recipe light enough to fit every season. However, I decided to publish it now because I think that, in these days when you work late, you run from one side of town to another to pick up gifts, you are very busy with last plans, dinners, etc. a recipe for some relaxing time with your friends is necessary :)

Ready?

Ingredients:

  • 200 grams of oatmeal;
  • 150 grams of wheat flour;
  • 3 tablespoons honey;
  • 1 egg
  • 3 or 4 tablespoons sunflower seed oil;
  • q.b. milk.
  • a teaspoon of baking powder

Are they  healthy or not?

Mix all the ingredients, the consistency should be like the one of a pastry for crostata (pasta frolla), thus, if the ingredients do not mix well, add a little  bit of milk or oil. Once you have the dough you can roll it out with the aid of a rolling pin between two sheets of baking paper. The dough should be about 1 cm thick. With a pastry rings formed the cookies and place them spaced from each other on baking paper on the baking sheet.

Bake at 180° for 15 minutes or until the edge becomes a light amber color and the inside is still a bit soft (do not worry about this because once cooled they will have the perfect consistency!)

I did also a version with a hole inside in order to fill them with jam but this is up to you. You can also add to the ingredients some dried fruit or chocolate chips or also a bit of cinnamon! Give space to your imagination :)

ADVICE: To make them keep longer put them in a tin can be closed.
