Chocolate Chip Oaties
There's something awfully nice about making oaties. You get that wonderful "Its really healthy; I'm doing my heart a favour" feeling. All while eating copious amounts of butter and sugar. And oaties combined with chocolate...let's just stop talking and start eating.
Cream 50 gms butter with 50 gms raw sugar. Add 1 tbsp lukewarm milk and 1/2 tsp vanilla essense. Beat until everything is well blended. Separately, mix 70 gms flour, 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder and a pinch of baking powder. Add the flour to the butter/sugar alongwith 50 gms oats. Mix well to make a smooth dough. Now add in 50 gms chocolate chips. My dough was quite runny (probably due to Bombay heat), so I left it in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.
While the dough is resting, set oven to preheat at 180C. Make balls of dough and plonk on the baking sheet. Press to flatten and bake for 15 minutes. Eat.
