I like everything natural and healthy, even prefer confectionery without artificial flavour, colour and additive. This time I baked these delicious coconut oatmeal raisin cookies without baking powder. And…they realy came out wonderful….
- 1 1/2 cups oatmeal
- 1 cup flour+coconutpowder(1 part coconut,3 parts flour)
- 1/2 cup salted butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup raisin
- 1 egg
Combine the flour, oatmeal, raisin and coconut together, set aside. Whisk the egg, set aside. Mix sugar & butter in a bowl for 3 minutes (you don’t need a mixer just take a wooden spoon). Stir firm until it comes to a smooth consistency, it is done when you feel it is light, bright and creamy. (If you want your cookies chewy add the egg to this cream and if you like the cookies soft but not chewy skip this part).
Add the flour mix and the egg to the butter sugar cream, stir to combine (don’t over work, otherwise you will have flat cookies). Take a spoonful of the paste, place onto the cooking tray (no need to spray or grease the tray).
Transfer the cookie sheet to the preheated oven ( 375°F ); place on the lower rack, for about 10-12 minutes. For having a better golden result, heat from the above (just broiler or grill) during the last 3 minutes.
If you like cookies very soft transfer them to an airtight container when they are still warm. Otherwise let them cool, then reserve them in your cookie jar.
Cookies tips& questions
Why do my cookies go flat when in the oven?
-If cookies go flat as soon as getting into the oven you have too much butter in proportion.
Why do my cookies go flat when I take them out of the oven?
-If you stir ingredients too much to form a paste at the final stage of combination, cookies get flat and a little dence after baking.
How to have chewy cookies?
-If you like chewy cookies, after you creamed butter and sugar together, add the egg and bit well.
How to have puff, fluffy and airy cookies?
-If you like puff and fluffy cookies don’t cream egg with the sugar and butter, also don’t stir ingredients too much at the final stage of combination.
