Yummy Yummy Yummy

A guest post from Sarah, Daisy's Aunty 'Raree'

Being housebound with all the snow on Monday, Daisy and I thought it was the perfect opportunity to bake a batch of cookies, or "yummy yummies" as Daisy refers to them! At the word "baking" Daisy was off to haul her special step stool over to the bench. We chose to make a popular Jo Seagar recipe for chocolate chunk oat cookies. Daisy was on quality control, tasting each ingredient as it went in. She would have been quite happy to devour all the raw mixture and I had to be quick to keep little hands out of the bowl. It was lovely and cosy having the smell of baking wafting through the house as the snow fell outside (as cliched as it sounds...)

Chocolate Chunk Oat Biscuits (Jo Seagar) 


  • 250g butter, softened
  • 3 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 1.5 c flour
  • 1.5 c rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 250g dark chocolate, roughly chopped

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
Beat butter, condensed milk and sugar together until light and creamy.
Add flour, rolled oats, baking powder and chocolate chunks.
Flatten spoonfuls on the prepared oven trays and cook for 15-20 minutes until golden brown

Daisy tucked into her cookie as soon as it was cool(ish...) and thoroughly enjoyed it. Judging by the lack of cookies left in the jar, the rest of the family have been enjoying them too.  


 Daisy was a little unsure of the snow at first, but once she realised she could eat it she was away laughing.

  1. That cookie does look yummy! I wouldn't have wanted to wait until they were properly cool either. Chocolate chip cookies are so much better when still warm from the oven.
