Nutty oat cookies

easy cookies recipe

This is the last week of winter holidays, next week it's back to school and all the getting-up-early-and-hating-it routine. We've been taking it easy, having leisurely morn'sings and relaxed afternoons.
It being so grey and miserable today, Eddie and I didn't fancy going out, even if we're running short of bread. I suggested baking cookies for tea (and by tea I mean a teatime, not dinner).
This is a variation of cookies I bake quite often, with oats and chocolate chips, or muesli mix.

Nutty oat cookies
60g mixed nuts, ground
100g caster sugar
100g margarine
100g oats
140g self-raising flour
1 small egg

Blitz the nuts until you get coarse crumbs.
Cream the margarine with sugar in a mixing bowl. Add the nuts, oats, flour and the beaten egg, mix well, forming the dough.
Pinch a big walnut-sized piece of dough and roll it into a ball, then flatten and place them on trays lined with parchment paper and bake for about 15 minutes until golden at 180C. Don't overcook, they are still very soft when you take them out.

In this recipe I used a pack of Planters Nut-rition protein mix (peanuts, redskin peanuts, cashew nuts and almonds) which was part of the latest Degustabox.

If you don't have this particular mix, then any selection of your favourite nuts will do. You can also use any ready-ground nuts of your choice.
