10-12 cookies


1 cup white sugar

115g softened butter (130 for gluten-free option)

2 cups white flour or gluten-free flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

2 cups oats

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1 cup raisins, cranberries or chocolate drops




These honey and oat cookies are a delicious and healthy snack that is perfect for any time of the day. They are easy to make, and you only need a few basic ingredients that you can find in your pantry.


  1. To start, preheat your oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy using a hand mixer.  Add the eggs one at a time and beat until well combined.
  3. Add honey and mix well to incorporate it.
    Note: if necessary warm it up in the microwave for 15 seconds or put the jar into a bowl with warm water.
  4. Then add 2 cups flour, 2 cups oats, baking soda, and salt and the walnuts or other nuts if you prefer. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  5. Lastly add 1 cup of raisins, cranberries or chocolate drops.
    Note: I prefer cranberries but my son loves chocolate chips so sometimes I half the mixture and add the favourite of each.
  6. Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, portion out the dough and roll into balls. Place them onto the prepared baking tray, leaving about 2 centimetre of space between each cookie. Use a fork to flatten the balls slightly.
  7. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until they turn golden brown. Remove the tray from the oven and let the cookies cool on the tray for a few minutes before transferring them onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. The result is a batch of deliciously chewy honey and oat cookies that are perfect for a quick snack or dessert. You can store them in an airtight container for up to a week or freeze them for longer shelf life.
  9. These cookies are not only tasty but also packed with healthy ingredients like oats and honey, which provide a good source of fibre and antioxidants. So, you can enjoy them guilt-free, knowing that you are treating yourself to a nutritious snack.
