some like salty
some like sweet
salty, sweet, salty, sweet, salty, sweet
how do you decide?
well, YOU MIX THEM TOGETHER!
think, peanut butter and chocolate
think, maltesers and popcorn (seriously, you have to try it)
think, chocolate covered pretzels.
it's sweet saturday but I decided to twist it up, jussstt a little bit
after seeing a recipe on Carrots 'n' Cake that caught my attention
Salty Sweet Oatmeal Cookies
adapted from here
1 cup Rolled Oats
1/2 cup Plain Flour
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup Milk
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 180*C.
Combine all ingredients (except salt) in a mixing bowl.
Drop tablespoons of batter onto a lined/greased cookie sheet.
Sprinkle tops of cookies with salt.
Bake for 12 - 15 minutes.
These cookies were super easy to make (and eat)
I ground the oats a little in the food processor before I started to keep a certain grain hater happy
and added about 1/4 cup currants.
You could definitely add any other dried fruit you like and I think chocolate chips would work wonders (especially white chocolate)
Keep in mind that these cookies are quite cake like - not your traditional cookie texture
and the salt on top may put some people off.
But they get addictive
and they're really quite healthy :)
So tell me,
are you a salty or sweet kinda person?
Have an AMAZING sweet saturday
(and rest of your weekend!)
