Oats And Sun flower Seed Cookies


Today I would like to share with you my first attempt of this lightly chewy and  buttery cookies for the Chinese New Year. One of the  main ingredient is sunflower seeds, which is a good source of dietary fibre and Vitamin E, folate and magnesium! A healthier cookie as compared to pineapple tarts and chocolate chip cookies.

Recipe: Source from Cookies, bars & brownies with minor modification

Ingredients:

225 g plain flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/4 tsp salt
250 g salted butter, softened
180 g light brown sugar
200 g castor sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
2 large eggs
300 g rolled oats
100 g sunflower seeds

Method:

1)  Preheat the oven to 180 deg C. Grease three large baking trays or line with parchment paper..
2)  Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl, sift together.
3)  Beat the butter, both sugars and the vanilla in a large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating until just blended after each addition.
4)  With the mixer on low speed, beat in the flour mixture, oats, and sunflower seeds.
5)  Drop teaspoons (tablespoon for big biscuits) of the dough onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 10 -15 minutes, until golden brown. Rotate the baking tray half-way through for even baking.
6)  Let the cookies cool on the baking  trays until they harden a little, 2-3 minutes.  Transfer to racks and let cool completely. Store in an air-tight container.
