Oatmeal Cookies

Hello beautiful people of the internet,

Today I had a craving. If you’re a student you know that while you’re revising for exams, you tend to crave pretty much anything and everything to keep you going. Baking is also a great way to procrastinate..maybe a little too good.

I was craving chocolate chip cookies but wanted something a little healthier. So after consulting the all knowing Google, and adding my own twist into it, I came up with these beauties!


You can definitely switch to brown sugar or leave out the chocolate chips and stick with cacao nibs, but I have a sweet tooth!


  • 57g butter
  • 100g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 70g plain flour
  • 70g oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 60g cacao nibs
  • A handful of chocolate chips


So the proper way to do it is to cream the butter and sugar together first. Then add the flour, egg and rest of the ingredients. But me being me I just threw it all into a bowl together and they came out pretty good! Bake them at 190 for 10-15 minutes. Keep an eye on them until they are slightly brown around the edges. Then remove and allow them to cool on a wire rack.

Let me know if you have any great oatmeal cookie recipes, or if you give these a try!

Talk soon,
