1. Preheat oven to 180°C/Gas 4.
2. Add the flour, oats, baking soda and salt to a big bowl. Mix well so the baking soda and salt are evenly distributed. Add the remaining ingredients. Mix everything together.
3. Scoop by the tablespoon and press into rounds on an oiled baking sheet. Tidy up the edges. You'll probably get about a dozen per tray. If you don't want two batches, just freeze the rest of the mix for another day.
4. Bake for 10 mins, or till just starting to set and just picking up a little colour. They'll set to be soft and chewy like this. If you'd prefer them crisper, flip the cookies over and return to the oven for 3 mins or so to crisp up the bottoms.
5. Once cooked, they store nicely for a week in an airtight container.

Fantastic recipe and always a love them everytime. Great way to set them up for the day.

Anything goes traybake


One of my all time favourite Abel and Cole recipes. It is so versatile. I tend to make it as a traybake. It is in the oven right now, although I'm not sure breakfast cookies is an appropriate name for this version as some fudge managed to sneak its way in...
