Do you, like me, have teenagers in the house? Are you always hearing the phrase “is there anything to eat?” If so I may have a solution – Mary Berry’s Muesli Cookies from her Ultimate Cake Book. This muesli cookie recipe is the one I use if there just isn’t “anything to eat”. These cookies are great little cakey/biscuits that fill a little gap when the children come in from school. They are really easy to throw together using store cupboard ingredients. Also ideal for lunch boxes and reasonably healthy too.
Muesli Cookie Recipe
175g soft margarine
100g caster sugar
1 egg (large)
175g self raising flour
175g muesli (I use Alpen no sugar, but any muesli will do)
1. Pre-heat your oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4. Lightly grease a baking tray.
2. Measure all the ingredients, except the muesli, into a large bowl and mix together until well blended and smooth. Stir in the muesli. Spoon dessert spoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared baking trays, allowing room for expansion.
3. Bake for about 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
Hope this helps with hungry teenagers!
April 2020 update
Yesterday I rediscovered this easy and tasty muesli cookie recipe. Like many of you, I’m currently staying at home and keeping safe. Popping to the shops for ingredients isn’t something simple any more so what to bake with what’s in the cupboard? No chocolate, vanilla, lemon, etc but I did have dried cranberries, sultanas, porridge oats, brazil nuts and sunflower seeds – enough to make my own muesli and then these delicious cookies.
Hope you find it as tasty as me…
