  • The calorie count on these cookies is insane by the way, so don’t make them a staple of your diet unless you plan to work them off.

    I got one to share.  Christmas Chex Mix.  Hopefully we'll make some this weekend.  It's not cookies, but it's a good holiday treat tradition I've carried on.  Something salty and sweet...a good handful of Christmas chex mix to accompany your glass of scotch.  

    Any recipe will do I guess, but it has to be one that has Worcestershire sauce in it.

    We always add the green & red Christmas M&Ms to ours.  Make a few batches, bag 'em up and share with family, neighbors and friends!

    Oaty Chocolate Chip Cookies

    125g butter, softened 

    ½ cup (110g) caster sugar 

    ½ cup (100g) firmly packed brown sugar 

    ½ teaspoon vanilla extract 

    1 egg 

    1 ¼ cups (110g) rolled oats 

    1 cup (150g) plain flour 

    ½ teaspoon baking powder 

    ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda 

    175g good quality dark chocolate, chopped 

    150g roasted hazelnuts, peeled and chopped 

    ½ teaspoon salt 


    Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius. Line baking trays with baking paper.


    Using an electric beater, beat butter, sugars and vanilla until pale and thick. Beat in egg until just combined. Using a wooden spoon, fold in oats.


    Sift flour, baking powder, bicarb soda and salt over the mixture and fold in. When almost incorporated, fold in the chocolate and hazelnuts. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop balls of dough (about 1 heaped tablespoon) onto the prepared tray 4 cm apart. Flatten slightly, then bake for about 10 minutes until golden. The cookies will feel soft but will crisp as they cool.
