I decided to try making use of our good old oven toaster at home for baking. I looked up a recipe online that would use an oven toaster and yes there is! So here it goes. I am not a guru on anything cooking but this turned out fine. I forgot to take a picture of the final product so I’ll just update this post in the future once I make another batch of this easy to make cookies. 🙂
Oven Toaster Baked Oatmeal Cookies
- 1 cup quick oats.
- 1/4 cup quick oats for coating the dough
- 3/4 cup sifted All-Purpose flour
- 1/4 cup Nesquick (it’s suppose to be cocoa powder but I didn’t have any in our pantry)
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup margarine
- 1/2 cup canola oil (it’s supposed to be vegetable oil but this also worked for me)
- 1/2 cup white sugar (if you’re using cocoa powder, use 3/4 cup of sugar instead)
- 1 Egg
- In a mixing bowl combine all the dry ingredients (oatmeal, flour, nesquick, sugar, baking powder, salt) and mix until evenly distributed.
- Add the wet ingredients (vanilla, margarine, oil, egg) and mix until combined evenly.
- Use a spoon to scoop from the dough and then form it into a ball.
- Dip it into the oats to cover the formed ball.
- Grease your baking sheet and line the dough coated with oatmeal.
- Bake in an oven toaster for 7-10 minutes.
- After baking, let it cool then serve.
This makes around 15 very big oatmeal cookies.
I had a very small oven toaster (i think the baking sheet is only a 4×6 inch pan) so I had to make this in batches. The first batch fits 6 pieces and was cooked for 10 minutes since I didn’t pre-heat the oven. The next batch (6 pieces) had to be cooked in less time (around 7 minutes) since the oven was still hot. And even at 7 minutes, the edges of the cookie burned a little. The last batch (3 pieces) was also cooked for 7 minutes and this turned out to be burned at the bottom so I probably need to further limit the time to 5 minutes.
The taste, my husband and our helpers said it was tasty so I guess this turned out fine. 🙂
