Best Oatmeal Cookies in Kenya

We all love cookies and once in a while, it is alright to indulge your sweet tooth. ^_^ A great classic cookie to indulge in, one that is a personal favorite, is the Oatmeal Cookie. I like it mostly because it is also quite a healthy cookie, especially if you make some substitutes on the ingredients.

Oatmeal Cookies

- 2 cups Self-Rising Wheat Flour
- 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
- 3/4 cup Un-salted Butter or Margarine (*if using butter; add a 1/8 tspn salt)
- 1 cup Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence
- 2 Eggs
- 1 cup Quick Oats
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh Rosemary 
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 177 degrees Celsius. Grease and flour a cookie sheet and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together flour and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, Cream margarine and sugar with a mixer. Mix in vanilla.
  4. Add eggs one at a time, until fully incorporated. Mix in oats and rosemary.
  5. Fold dry ingredients into margarine mixture until a good cookie dough is formed.
  6. Form the dough into balls, approximately 2 Tablespoons. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet and with a lightly floured spoon, spread the cookie dough balls to flatten a little. To make a pattern, use a lightly floured fork to mark the cookies with tines, vertically and horizontally.
  7. Bake until cookies turn golden, 13 - 15 minutes. Remove from oven to cooling rack. Let sit for at least 3 minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring to a tray to cool completely.

For a healthier Oatmeal Cookie Recipe 

- Instead of Self-rising flour, use whole wheat flour. A good Kenyan brand is EXE Atta Wheat Flour or   EXE Brown bread flour. Make sure you add 1 teaspoon of baking powder to the flour and cinnamon mixture during preparation.
- Honey can be substituted in place of sugar as well - use 3/4 cup honey in the butter/margarine mixture.
