Just caught up with a friend I haven’t seen for a while so took her some cookies – these are ‘One a day’ from Dan Lepard’s Short and Sweet and really good. Pretty healthy with oats, apple, sunflower seeds and wholemeal flour. Posting recipe as my quantities were a little off from the one in the book:
Heat the oven to 160 C and line a baking tray with greaseproof baking paper. Cream 120g softened butter and 100g soft brown sugar (I used dark), then mix in 1 large egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract until combined. On a slower speed, add 100g wholemeal flour, 1 grated apple (around 120g), 100g oats and 150g sunflower seeds, lightly toasted first. Take a heaped tablespoon of the mix and place on the tray, flatten lightly then bake for 12 minutes, until slightly brown around the edges. These cookies are not overly sweet – Dan’s recipe had 100g caster sugar instead of apple (he recommended apple for a slightly healthier version) but the apple also makes them softer. You can use pumpkin or hemp seeds instead or chopped nuts I suppose. I don’t think they will be ‘one a day’ though, more like gone in seconds.
