225g of butter

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

160g of caster sugar

120g of light brown sugar

2 large free range eggs

1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda

190g of plain flour

240g of rolled oats

80g of dried cranberries

100g of good quality white chocolate chips

Standalone mixer

40 mins
Serves 24

These make wonderfully chewy and crumbly cookies which are easily adaptable, just use whatever ingredients you might have in the storecupboard. Feel free to swap out the chocolate and raisins with other dried fruit, nuts or seeds.

 

 

Preheat the oven to 180˚C/350˚F/Gas Mark 4 and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
Using a standalone mixer or hand mixer, cream the sugar and butter until it becomes pale and smooth.
Add the eggs one by one, mixing well after each addition so the mix doesn’t split.
Little by little add in the flour and bicarbonate of soda until it is completely incorporated.
Using a spatula fold through the oats, cranberries, vanilla extract and chocolate chips until completely combined.
Place 12 heaped tablespoons of the dough on each baking sheet and place in the oven to bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

TOP TIP

You may need to swap the trays halfway through the cooking time in order to get an even colour on the cookies.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before transferring to a wire wrack to cool completely.
Enjoy with a glass of milk!

    Hey Donal, I really loved this video and recipe and am dying to try it but can I use instant oats or do I need rolled oats?

    • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

      You can use instant but sometimes they can be quite ‘floury’ and lead to more of a cakey texture. Also they tend to have a lot of added sugar so if you can go with the rolled oats do but instant will work just fine. :)

    So good! :)

  • Elinor

    can you use regular chocolate chips and rasins?

    • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

      Absolutely!

  • Irena Adler

    they are soooo gooood!
    I modificated a little your recipie, i’ve added mashed banana just before baking. you should try that! don’t add too much, because the dough would be too wet!!! you also should add less sugar, because banana is sweet :)

    • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

      Nice changes! I love to hear how people use a recipe!
