You will need:
- 1 & 1/2 cups oats
- 1/2 cup of plain flour
- 100g good quality chocolate chopped into small chunks
- 1/8 to 1/4 ground coconut
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 6 tbps unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup dark brown packed sugar
- 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1tsp vanilla extract
To start preheat your oven to 140C.
Next in a medium mixing bowl mix together your oats, flour, chocolate, coconut & baking powder and then put to one side.
Using an electric whisk beat together the butter and sugars until they are light and fluffy and then add your egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Slowly gradually add the oat mixure and mix until just combined.
Use your hands to form small golf ball size pieces and then flatten them down and place on a baking tray that has greaseproof paper on it. Bake in the oven for 12-16 minutes until lightly golden but still soft.
Leave the cookies to cool on the tray for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool. You could try to resist them till they cooled but what would be the fun in that?
