It’s one of those glorious long Sunday afternoons, when everyone in the house is either out or busy and Ive got absolutely nothing to do.  The boys are back at Uni tomorrow and I’m thinking that it would be nice to bake something yummy for the start of their Academic year.   Its a perfect time to bake some cookies.

Oatmeal and apricot cookies are a semi-healthy option, but I think the addition of choc chips to this recipe just makes the cookies so much more yummy and gooey.  This recipe makes 16 medium sized cookies.

INGREDIENTS

  • 110g soft butter
  • 2/3 cup  (125g) brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup  (95g) plain flour sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarb of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups (120g) rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup choc chips
  • 2/3 cup of chopped dried apricots

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius and line 2 trays with backing paper
  2. Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy in a mixer
  3. Add beaten egg and vanilla and beat well
  4. On a low speed, mix in the oats, sifted flour, bicarb and cinnamon and beat until just mixed through
  5. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the choc chips and the apricot pieces.
  6. Roll medium size balls (about 1 1/2 tablespoons each) and place on lined trays
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the cookies are golden
