Malted Oat, Coconut and Raisin Cookies

This recipe is from one of my favourite cook books – Donna Hay Modern Classics 2.  This is an awesome cookbook, as well as having a lot of old favourites, there are also some great new recipes too.

The original recipe is Malted Oat and Raisin biscuits, I’ve added the coconut as I think it makes everything taste better.  Feel free to leave it out if you prefer.  These are really yummy & you can also freeze the dough.

 

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup castor sugar

125g butter – softened

1 egg

1/2 cup malted milk powder

1 1/4 cups plain flour

1/4 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda

1/2 cup rolled oats

3/4 cup raisins

1/2 cup desicated coconut

 

  • Preheat oven to 160 degrees
  • Place the sugars, butter and egg into a mixer bowl and beat until pale and creamy
  • Add the milk powder, flour, bicarb soda, rolled oats, raisins and coconut and beat on low speed to combine
  • Roll large dessert spoons of mixture into balls and place on baking trays lined with non stick paper, gently flatten balls (I made around 36).
  • Bake for 18 -20 minutes or until golden
  • Allow to cool on wire racks
