My grammy passed her recipe for oatmeal cookies on to my mum, who wrote it down in her recipe book but says she could never make them ‘the same way’. It turns out Mum hadn’t written down the teaspoon of baking powder. She’d been making them for about twenty years without any leavening, ever since she moved from the US to London. After I eventually discovered the mistake and, given my inability to leave recipes alone, tweaked it, I ended up with these thin, crunchy cookies. They are quite different from the original ones but delicious all the same (and with the baking powder back in them!).

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
55g unsalted butter
100g coconut oil
100g granulated sugar
150g demerara sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
120g plain flour
240g rolled oats
75g pecans, chopped
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
or 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
or 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line two baking trays with baking parchment.
  2. Cream the butter, coconut oil and sugars together in a bowl using a wooden spoon or a hand-held electric beater. Mix in the egg and vanilla extract, then the vinegar and salt. Add the baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon, flour and oats and stir until completely combined. Stir the pecans through.
  3. Scoop 2 tablespoons of dough into a ball, place it on one of the lined baking trays and flatten it down with your hand. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Bake the cookies for 8–10 minutes, until golden brown around the edges. Leave the cookies on their trays for 1 minute, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
