Chocolate oat cookies

This is one of those fab, easy delicious and healthy (well almost)  recipes, that kids and adults alike just love.  Enjoy!

110g butter or margerine
170g brown sugar
1 egg
5ml vanilla essence
100g oats
140g cake flour
15g cocoa powder
1ml salt
2,5ml (1/2tsp) baking powder
2,5ml (1/2tsp) bicarb of soda (baking soda)

*  Pre-heat the oven to a moderate temp of 180C
*  Beat the butter and sugar until light and creamy
*  Add the egg and continue beating,  beat in the vanilla essence.
*  Stir in the oats with a spoon.
*  Sift in the flour, salt, cocoa, baking powder and bicarb.  Stir into the mixture with a spoon until well combined.
*  Place spoonfuls of the mixture (about the size of a walnut)  onto a greased baking pan about 5cm apart.
*  Bake in a moderate oven for 20-25 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to cool on a baking rack.

Tips and Suggestions:

  4. Yum, these look really good and I always have a chocolate craving in the morning! I just made some chocolate oatmeal cookies the other day for my grandson who specifically requested them - I figured he would go for chocolate chip but he loves chocolate oatmeal.
