Oaty Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today was a 'sorting out' day - yes, I still have unpacked boxes!! Not too many, just the hard ones... you know, those ones that you pack last and then unpack last - the junk drawer stuff (you know you have one!) and the little bits that you find as you are packing up your house that don't belong anywhere in particular, but that you just can't get rid off....

In order to break the monotiny of finding new homes for the 'bits' we made some yummy cookies. They're sort of a cross between an Anzac and a Chocolate Chip. Too good to stop at one though... you have been warned!

Oaty Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cream together:
150grams butter
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tablespoon golden syrup

Mix together with creamed mixture:
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup dark energy chocolate chopped roughly into chips

Roll into balls, flatten and bake in at 180C for around 10 minutes, or until golden.

Enjoy straight from the oven while the chocolate is still warm and runny with a steaming cup of coffee!


  1. oh my gosh YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they look great! will have to give them a try.
    (oh and we still have a couple of boxe of "randoms" that havent been unpacked and we moved 9 months ago haha)

  2. Yum. They look good! I'd suggest finding yourself another junk drawer and tipping the contents of the box into it. That way you will be unpacked and you can transfer the bits as you go :o).

  3. Yes, that was my first instinct too, but we have gone from a fully renovated 2 storey house to an original (aka very old) 1 storey house... with NO storage - I have already managed to fill every little space I can find, plus the garage!!
