Astonishing Cookies in Se7en Steps.

These cookies are astonishing because they turn out – well nothing like you think they will. I love this recipe – it is quick easy and very impressive! Great big Giant Cookies!


It is especially great when you need to bake and you have nearly no flour in the house – I can’t help you if you don’t have castor sugar and butter either!

Meet the Players:


  • 75 g butter
  • 75 g oats
  • 100 g castor sugar
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 teaspoons of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder

Let’s Play the Game:

Step 1:
Gently melt the butter in a pot.


Step 2:
Once it has melted put the oats into the pot and stir them through the butter.


Step 3:
Stir the sugar through the mixture and leave the mixture to stand for a minute or two, so that the oats can absorb the butter.


Step 4:
Now mix the beaten egg through the mixture and then add in your flour and baking powder.


Step 5:
This step is where you are required to follow the rules! Place six heaped teaspoons on a large baking tray and pop them in the oven until they are golden brown – about 8 minutes at 180 degree Celsius. (Don’t think you can fit more onto the tray!)


Step 6:
Don’t move them… they will conk and break up! Let them cool on the tray for about five minutes before you carefully place them on a cooling rack to finish cooling, and you can carry on baking the next batch.


Step 7:
Yum, yum you are done.
