Cinnamon Oat Cookies

This recipe originates from Shugary Sweets but I wanted to make these lovely cookies a little bit healthier. I also wanted them to be good for your daily cuppa or equally perfect to give as a gift, bring to a Coffee Morning or enjoy with friends. They have a lovely mix of spice and can be served with or without the cinnamon icing.

You can easily convert these cookies to Gluten Free. Simply use GF oats, GF plain flour and GF baking powder.

I baked them for 15 minutes at 170C (conventional oven) but if you like your biscuits on the crunchy side, then leave them in for 16/17 minutes just to give them that bit extra.

Apple & Cinnamon Crumble Squares

Basically, this recipe is a hug in a traybake! It’s so delicious, so warming and full of comfort. The bonus is that it’s really simple to make too. You can serve it with crème fraiche or whipped cream for a dessert or just slice into squares and share with your friends over a cuppa.

These delicious squares can easily be converted to Gluten Free by replacing the flour and oats to gluten free options. As it’s basically a crumble, it will convert well.

Depending on the size of the bars, you should get about 16 generous slices out of this recipe. You don’t need to turn the oven on until you’ve almost completed the apple filling so you can make the filling first if you need to get ahead.
