 A quick and easy recipe for whole wheat oat cookies with brown sugar.
This is the fasting version of the recipe but you can replace margarine & orange juice with butter and milk. They’re very tasty & crispy and keep fresh for several days in a metal container.
Enjoy them plain, with jam or your favorite cream, fresh or dried fruit and yogurt.

 

Ingredients

  • 150 g whole wheat flour
  • 150 g oat flakes
  • 75 g brown sugar
  • 150 g soft margarine (or butter)
  • 3 tbsp orange juice (or milk)
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • zest of 1 orange

Blend in the whole wheat flour, the baking powder, and the vanilla sugar.

3
Add margarine (or butter) and keep blending until the mixture starts to get wet.
