Oatmeal Raisin Cookies and Coffee is the perfect pairing for my dearest husband... This is the first ever cookie I have baked. I was scared about the outcome... however, surprisingly, they turned out well and gained appreciation from my better half. Here is the recipe to make these yummy cookies.
(makes around 7 to 8 cookies)
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup rolled oats or a 34g packet of Quaker instant oatmeal(Cinnamon & Spice flavor)
1/4 cup brown sugar(add a little more, if using rolled oats instead of the flavored one)
1/4 cup finely shredded coconut
1/8 cup Raisins
1/4 tsp salt(not required if using cinnamon & spice Quaker oatmeal)
1/4 tsp cinnamon powder(not required if using cinnamon & spice Quaker oatmeal)
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tablespoon boiling water
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Combine the flour, coconut, raisins and oats in a bowl. In another small bowl, add the sugar, honey and butter. Place the bowl on low heat and stir until the butter melts. Once everything mixes into a smooth mixture, remove from heat and add it to the bowl containing the dry ingredients. Take a small bowl and combine the baking powder with the hot water. Mix them and add it to the flour mixture. Mix all the ingredients and knead into a soft dough. Preheat the oven to 325 F. Make small portions of the dough into balls and flatten them a little. Place the prepared cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 13 minutes or until golden brown.
