Date & Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

 

 

 

These cookies are so amazingly simple to make and absolutely delicious. They are sweetened with luscious dates, raisins and light brown sugar, and have a chewy texture that will have you reaching for a third, then maybe a fourth cookie. 🙂

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup Oatmeal
  • 1 1/2 cup Plain flour
  • 3/4 cup Light brown sugar
  • 3/4 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 cup Dates (pitted & chopped)
  • 1/3 cup Raisins
  • 1 Egg (lightly beaten)
  • 5 tbsp Milk
  • 3/4 cup Vegetable oil

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C. Line a baking tray with grease proof paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together oatmeal, flour, light brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, chopped dates and raisins.
  3. In another bowl, lightly whisk together egg, milk and vegetable oil.
  4. Pour this mixture into the dry ingredients. Combine everything together with a wooden spoon or a spatula till you get a soft dough consistency.
  5. Use an ice cream scoop to measure and place each cookie or use a large spoon full. Place the dough well apart from each other, flatten each cookie with a large spoon or a spatula. This recipe should make about 18 cookies.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 10 to 12 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container, consume within 5 days if kept at room temperature.
