Preheat your oven to 180*C and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.

Cream:

  • 225g granulated sugar
  • 175g brown sugar
  • 225g butter

Add:

  • 2 eggs, lighlty beaten
  • 1Tablespoon vanilla extract

and beat until light and fluffy.

Sift:

  • 300g plain (cake) flour
  • 5 ml bicarbonate of soda

Add to egg mix together with

  • 125g rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup of peanuts

Spoon 1/4 cup of mix onto your baking sheet at a time.  I usually get four cookies to one large sheet.  Make sure you leave plenty of space for them to spread out.

Poke your smarties (or chocolate m&m’s ) into the top of the cookie, and bake for 8-10 minutes (or until lightly browned).

The cookies will still be soft and you need to let them harden for a few minutes before transferring them to a rack to cool.  Try and wait until they are cooled completely to enjoy them at their best.
