The Saturday Kitchen – Still in The Mood for Oat (Cookies)

 

I am still in the mood for oats. Apart from Yee Por’s elusive savoury oat porridge, I only like oats in cookie or bar form. I found a pack of oats in my baking supplies drawer yesterday and felt the need to bake them up before they reached their expiry date. This is an old, reliable recipe which I often use when the mood hits. They are hearty, chewy and goes best dunked in a cup of tea. Good for flushing out the excess cholesterol, as the doctor ordered, and with reduced sugar, it’s a healthier option than store bought. And it’s so easy to make, why even buy?
