Loaded oatmeal cookie hearts
Updated: Aug 14, 2020
What happens if we bake oatmeal cookie dough inside heart-shaped silicone moulds?
Well, we get super cute and super chewy loaded oatmeal cookie hearts!!
Also, if you turn the picture 45 degrees they totally look like a four-leaf clover, am I right?
So I hope these cookies will bring us some luck because this year we all really need it.
If you are interested in baking only 4 super easy chewy and delicious oatmeal cookies you can check out the recipe below (I adapted it from the amazing Sally's Baking addiction)
29g soft butter
25g granulated sugar
25g dark brown sugar
30ml beaten egg*
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
45g all purpose flour
10g rolled oats
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
65g crushed peanuts M&M's*
22g chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C) and line a heart-shaped silicone mould on a baking tray.
In a bowl cream together soft butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar with the electric mixer or a stand mixer.
Add beaten egg and vanilla extract and keep beating until combined.
Leave the mixer and add gradually the flour, rolled oats, baking soda and salt and mix with a rubber spatula until combined.
Finally add chocolate chips and crushed peanuts M&M's until incorporated (The dough will be sticky so if it’s too sticky to handle, chill in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes).
Divide the mixture evenly into 4 silicone hearts.
Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges.
Let them cool completely in the moulds before serving.
Crack an egg, beat it, then use 2 tablespoon (30 grams).
You can use any M&M's you want, if miniatures you don't need to crush them.
You can use any silicone mould you have on hand or even make one giant cookie or 4 smaller cookies as suggested by Sally's Baking addiction ... so many options :)
If you make it let me know! :)
