Crunchy Oatmeal Cookies

The recipes from my mum’s cook book seem to be quite popular, so here’s another one. These cookies have been a hit with the kids and again are quick and easy to put together. I halved the batch the first time I made them and they went in 5 mins flat! This time I was sure to make the whole batch.

You can add nuts and/or sultanas for a bit of texture but they are crunchy and delicious as is and my kids are fussy so I did mine without. Hubby took some to work and they were quickly devoured. I have enjoyed making snacks from scratch for the kids, they have got to be better for them than some of the supermarket alternatives. Enjoy!

P.S. First photo’s with the new camera, love to know what you think!

Crunchy Oatmeal Cookies


2 cups oats                            3/4 teaspoons bi-carb soda

2 cups flour                           2 teaspoons nutmeg

2 cups sugar                           1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt                       3 eggs

1 cup butter                             2 teaspoon cinnamon


Stir all dry ingredients together, work in butter, (melted also works well if in a hurry). Lightly beat eggs and combine with other ingredients, add nuts and sultanas if you wish. Make into balls and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Cook at 190 degrees for around 10 mins. Makes lots!
