Chunky Oat Cookies

This is a great recipe made even better by the use of good quality white chocolate. Avoid that cheap supermarket 'own-brand' variety, because it has a rather cloying taste. If you prefer, you can use milk or plain dark chocolate.

Ingredients: (makes 15)
125g butter - softened, plus extra for greasing
125g caster sugar
1 egg
2tsp vanilla essence
125g porridge oats
4tbs sunflower seeds
10g plain flour
half tsp baking powder
175g white chocolate - chopped into small pieces

  • Heat the oven to 180'C or Gas Mark 4.
  • Grease a large baking sheet.
  • Beat together the butter and sugar in a bowl until creamy. Add the egg, vanilla, oats, sunflower seeds, flour and baking powder and mix to make a thick paste. Stir in the chocolate.
  • Place dessert spoonfulls of the mixture on the baking sheet and flatten slightly with the back of a fork.
  • Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes until the biscuits have risen and are golden.
  • Leave for 15 minutes and then move to a wire cooling rack or a plate to cool.
