Oaty fruity spicy cookies

These biscuits are actually not too unhealthy, so perfect for kid lunchboxes. They’re really easy to make as well – if I can make them then anyone can – so kids can get involved in making them.


80g butter
80g sugar
1 egg
100g plain flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon or mixed spice
50g oats (I used a packet of plain oat so simple!)
50g mixed fruit

Heat the oven to gas mark five
Cream butter and sugar in a bowl
Beat egg in a separate bowl and mix into butter and sugar
Add the flour, spice, fruit and oats and mix well. (Harrison loved this bit!)
Roll into balls and place on a baking tray. Flatten down slightly.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or when they are golden brown.

I’ve had a go at making these without the spice and fruit, and with chocolate chips. Not quite as healthy but equally as yummy!!


There should have been six fairly big ones but a certain small person was found helping himself before I got a photo!
