Notes

Variations: There are many ways to vary the basic oatmeal cinnamon cookie mixture, here are a few ideas;
  • Add a handful (about 50g) of raisins, sultana's, chopped dried apricots or chocolate chips to the mixture (at the same time as the flour).
  • For a chewier texture, use soft light brown sugar instead of caster sugar.
  • Grate in the zest of an orange for cinnamon orange cookies.
  • Replace 25g of the flour with 25g of cocoa powder for chocolate cinnamon cookies.
  • Add chopped pecan nuts or walnuts to the cookie mixture for added crunch and texture.
Freezing: The cookies can be frozen for up to 3 months.
