Oats Gingerbread Cookies

Good day people! It’s 5 am here in Italy and I am already up and super awake..Hate the jet-lag the first couple of days I am back! Today I am writing to you from Milan. I am at my sister’s house where I landed yesterday and where I will stay for 10 days, then Ill be heading to Lecce and then back to Shanghai at the end of the first week of December to start my new job!

The recipe I am posting today was made a few weeks back when I was still in China!
I know Christmas is still more than a month away, but I just could not help myself and start with some Xmas baking!

This time I’ve made oats gingerbread cookies…D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!
First time I had this cookies was at cityshop in Shanghai. They were giving away same free samples for people to try them and, of  course, I did. I loved the combination of gingerbread flavor with the oats, so I decided to make them at home.

There you go with the recipe! Happy Baking 🙂

  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg

and a few dry cranberries. Stir all the ingredients together. Scoop out tablespoons of dough onto parchment paper
