Chewy ginger oatmeal cookies

By:
Janice Lawandi

I think almost everyone loves oats sweetened with maple syrup, whether it’s crunchy maple granola or a bowl of warm maple-sweetened oatmeal (my personal favourite). Maple and oats are a timeless pairing, a little nostalgic, and absolutely comforting. Spiced up with lots of crystallized ginger, these chewy oatmeal cookies are a nod to my favourite breakfast growing up and great with a glass of Natrel’s Partly skimmed Maple Milk.

Enjoy with a glass of Natrel Maple Flavoured Milk. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, oats, baking soda and salt.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugars until the texture is light and fluffy.
With the mixer on low, gradually add the beaten egg and vanilla. Mix well, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Stir in the maple syrup.
Add the flour mixture and stir until you obtain a dough. Add the walnuts and crystallized ginger, and stir again until everything is combined. Transfer the dough to an airtight container and chill overnight in the fridge.
