Cranberry and Raisin Oaties

Ingredients:
100g butter, softened
100g caster sugar
100g light brown caster sugar
1 egg
2tsp water
1tsp vanilla
250g porridge oats
110g self raising flour
1/2tsp salt
100g cranberries
75g raisins

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 180°C
  • Cream the butter in an electric food mixer until soft.  Add the sugars and beat until the mixture looks light and fluffy.
  • While still beating, add in the egg, water and vanilla.
  • Using a wooden spoon gently mix in the oats, flour, salt, cranberries ad raisins to form a stiff dough.
  • Line two baking trays with baking parchment.
  • Take pieces of dough about the size of walnuts, roll them in your hands to form balls and place them on the baking trays, leaving a space between each to let them spread.
  • Bake in the oven for 20-25 mins until golden brown but still slightly soft in the centre.  If you like yours crunchy like my kids do, leave them in for the 25 mins or a little longer.
  • Allow to cool on wire racks.
