Oatmeal – Chocolate Chips Cookies (and book fair)

I’ve been hammering around the book fair I took part to last week for quite sometimes, now it’s time to tell you something about it.

The fair started at noon on a hot, hot, HOT…did I say HOT? Saturday afternoon. I got there, and the organizer, Ms. Sandy Chu, kindly showed me my table. After I got it all set up with my pretty red table cloth and my books I started walking round to meet the other vendors. There were some amazing ppl there, like this German lady who was selling these beautiful hand-made cards. You guys should def go check out her staff, really something quite extraordinary.

Despite the heat, the turn out was quite good and so were sales.

A few of my readers showed up to get a signed copy of the book…which was kinda cool actually. I love to meet you guys, in fact even now I’m trying to personally deliver the book to those who email me to buy a copy. You guys put up with reading my blog and have been supporting me SO MUCH that the least I can do is to personally deliver my book to you!

Love you guys!

I definitely need to thank this guy, whose name I can’t recall now, for being there selling delicious sangria, cool beers and fresh watermelon juice, making sure we were not dieing of dehydration!

Of course a BIG thanks go to Sandy Chu for organizing this amazing book fair

Seriously I had such a blast and got to meet such amazing people

For the occasion I made these oatmeal-chocolate chips cookies to offer to those who stop by my stand. I believe most of you who tried them quite appreciated them 🙂

Here is the recipe if you wanna try make them at home.

Ingredients (make 40 mini-sized cookies):

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

Cream sugars and butter. Then add one egg at a time, mixing well in between addition making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl from time to time

Then add the vanilla extract, oats, baking powder, flour and flaxseed. While mixing pour in a tbsp of vegetable oil. This will give them that extra moisture!

Next up, add in the chocolate chips, give it a stir

then drop tsp of dough onto parchment paper

and bake at 180 C for 10 min. Let the cookies cool down

then enjoy them!
