I love Oatmeal Honey Cookies! I remember buying them and devouring them in a day or two! So when I started my baking journey with Maya (thanks Maya for sending me easy-to-follow recipes) and my Strawberry Cupcakes with Easy Vanilla Buttermilk Cream was a huge success, I got the confidence to create my own Oatmeal Honey Cookies!
Not bad huh? For someone always on a rush and is looking for quick and easy recipes, this one passed my "easy" standard (trust me on this one!) and the best part? Kyle had a wonderful time doing his own cooking show again!
P.S. forgive my totally no-make-up "pambahay" look! It was a sudden decision to do some baking time when Kyle got bored with his "toy kitchen utensils".
What you need to make your own Oatmeal Honey Cookies:
- 1 pack Maya All-Purpose Flour (the same flour I use to make my Potato Fritters with Corn Bits)
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon powder
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups butter, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 4 cups rolled oats
Sift together the flour with cinnamon powder, baking soda and salt. Set Aside.
Well, setting aside in my household means --- Kyle's playtime :P
Cream the butter, white sugar, brown sugar and honey until fluffy.
Beat egg and vanilla and add flour mixture and mix until well incorporated.
Fold in the oats. (Look at his face, so interested!)
And Kyle's play time continued! :PYou can't see it on photo but he kept on grabbing the wooden spoon and wanted to do the mixing all by himself! (swapang anak!) :P
Scoop or spoon batter onto the prepared cookie sheet. Preheat oven to 350 deg Fahrenheit or 177 deg Celsius.
When it comes to scooping out the cookie batter, make sure that there will be at least a 2-inch space in between cookies because they will spread during baking.
Bake until cookie turn evenly golden brown. Ours took 15 minutes.
Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
And we decided to move up to a more "professional" level by whipping out our cookie cutters and created these! :P
And oh! I wanted a thin, crispy version of these Oatmeal Honey Cookies to go with my morning coffee! So we made another batch and I'm extremely happy with the result!
Overall, this is easy to do! A quick tip from my household to yours --- You can always adjust the level of sweetness and the amount of rolled outs to incorporate in your cookie batter!
Difficult level is 5 out of 10, 5 just because I had a toddler beside my messing up the flour and batter! *lol* But overall, it was worth the mess when you see Kyle's genuine smile!
Will you give this easy recipe a try?
Any other easy recipes you suggest I could do with my kid?
