Chloe's Cookies (from Katy)

Today I have a wonderful sweet treat recipe to share that has been sent in from Katy who blogs at Katy I See You.  I think these would be just the thing for a rainy-day afternoon tea.

Katy writes: "This is a modified version of Anzac biscuits. I have a wonderful, imaginative three year old daughter who loves to have a cup of tea with a biscuit (as do I). The only issue we had was a lot of biscuits have so many preservatives, additives, etc and she would often be climbing the walls afterwards (yes she is a little food sensitive) so we created a simple, yet pretty healthy (I hope) version of ANZAC biscuits.

The recipe and the creation are so basic it is a great one to let little ones play chef with - just adults are need for the melting part. There is a little sugar so they are a bit of a sweet treat especially good for that 3pm burnout for parents!"

Thanks Katy - and Chloe!

Chloe's Cookies

1 cup of organic rolled oats

1 cup plain, organic w/meal flour

3/4 cup organic sugar

2 tablespoons of treacle

125g (roughly 4 tbsp) organic butter or butter alternative (nuttlex, etc)

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

*optional extras can be 1 cup of organic sultanas, cranberries, etc and I usually add some LSA mix and a little bit of ginger*


1. Preheat oven to roughly 160 degrees

2. Put oats , flour, sugar in a bowl and combine.

3. Place butter and treacle in a saucepan and stir over low heat until the butter is melted.

4. Put water and bicarb in a small bowl and mix together.

5. Add it all into the oat mixture and stir to combine.

6. Grab your baking tray and cover with baking paper.

7. Either make small balls of mix or circles and put on tray (flatten a little)

8. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes and then cool them on tray.
