SALTED CHOCOLATE CHIP OAT COOKIES
I don't know how I never considered this combination before, but I'm going to have a hard time making Anzac biscuits in the future without adding choc chips. These are really yummy. Last weekend we went on a picnic with friends and these went down quite a treat. I was secretly hoping there'd be some leftovers to bring home, but no such luck.
The version is based on the recipe my Nanna always used for her rolled oat biscuits, with some milk choc chips thrown in and a sprinkling of sea salt on top.
1 cup plain (all purpose) flour
3/4 cup desicated coconut
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup rolled oats
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons cold water
1 teaspoon bicarb soda
1 cup milk chocolate chips, approximately
Preheat oven to 170 C or 180 C fan forced. Line two cookie sheets with baking paper.
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Melt the butter, honey and water together, then incorporate into the dry mixture. Add the choc chips, leaving some extras for the tops.
Roll approximately 2 teaspoons of mixture into balls and place on trays, pressing down slightly with the palm of your hand. Press an additional 4-5 choc chips into the top of each biscuit then sprinkle lightly with sea salt.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool on trays for about 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool
