I have two boxes of old fashioned oatmeal sitting in the pantry for quite some times. Not being a big fan of oatmeal porridge... I decided to turn it into some delicious cookie..
Ingredients：（Yield 24-26 cookies）
1 cup 5 grains flour or whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup Old Fashioned oatmeal
1 cup raisin or any dried fruits of your liking
1/2 cup chopped walnuts ( I used sunflower seeds)
2/3 tsp Cinnamon powder
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/3 tsp salt
1 medium size egg （if you choose not to use oatmeal porridge, use 2 eggs）
1 1/3 cup of brown sugar (Packed)
1/2 cup/ 1 stick unsalted Butter (room temperature）
1/3 cup cooked oatmeal Optional
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Creamed together wet ingredients (Beside oatmeal porridge), make sure egg and Butter are both room temperature. Add the cooked oatmeal and blend well.
Blend together all dry ingredients with chopped walnut/ sunflower seeds.
Gently mix together wet and dry ingredients, do not over stir it.
Preheat oven to 360 F（180 C).
Scoop out pingpong size of the dough and place them on cookie sheet, make sure to leave some space between cookies as the cookie will expand during baking process.
Bake cookie for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown, place the cookies on cooling rack before storing. ( If you do not add porridge, bake the cookie for 15-18 minutes.)
Good for evening tea..
