I love oatmeal cookies. They often make me feel less guilty eating them compared to other types of cookies as oats is a healthy food. The recipe I have on this page is a basic oats cookie recipe, one that is rather plain with just oats and chopped almonds instead of other variants of the cookies that often have loads of other extra ingredients like dried fruits, nuts and chocolate chips.
Not that I don't like all these extras (in fact I love them all!), but sometimes its nice to eat plain oatmeal cookies and this cookies are perfect for such times.
The ingredients for this cookies are pretty basic. I have added chopped roasted almonds into the batter for the extra crunch in the soft chewy texture of the cookies. To roast the almonds, I chopped them into small chunks and then pan roasted them over very low heat until they are slightly browned and crunchy.
The best part about this recipe is that it can be adjusted to make chewy cookies and all the same, crunchy cookies. The recipe below is for the soft and chewy version but if you are not a fan of soft cookies and prefer crunchy ones instead, you can have crunchy oatmeal cookies with this recipe by reducing the size of the cookies when baking and increasing the baking time.
Whichever variant you choose, you are definitely going to be hooked on to this super easy oatmeal cookies recipe. Try it and let me know how you find it!
90g plain flour
150g brown sugar
50g chopped almond (roasted)
1/2 tsp salt
