Do you, like me, have teenagers in the house? Are you always hearing “is there anything to eat?”. If so I may have a solution. Mary Berry’s Muesli Cookies from her Ultimate Cake Book. This is a recipe I use if there isn’t “anything to eat”. They are great little cakey/biscuits that fill a little gap when the children come in from school, and are really easy to throw together. Also ideal for lunch boxes and reasonably healthy.
You will need :
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!
