  10499_A2Icons-Clock  Preparation time: 15 minutes

10499_A2Icons-Whisk  Cooking time: 8-10 minutes

  Makes: 30 cookies

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 and 3⁄4 cups of plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • Pinch of iodized salt
  • 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1⁄2 cup of caster sugar
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons of honey*
  • 1 egg
  • 1 scoop of a2 Platinum® Premium toddler milk drink combined with 50ml of water (following preparation instructions on the can)

*Honey can contain the bacteria that causes infant botulism so children less than 12 months old shouldn’t have honey. Honey is safe for children one year of age and older.

Directions
Preheat oven to 190°C and line two baking trays with baking paper. Sift flour, baking powder and salt.

Place olive oil, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl and using an electric mixer or handheld blender, beat until it is smooth and creamy.

Add the honey and egg and beat well.

Combine the sifted dry ingredients a little at a time, alternating with the prepared a2 Platinum® toddler milk drink (if the mixture is too firm, add a few extra drops of a2 Milk™).

Drop carefully from a teaspoon onto trays, press lightly with a fork tip that has been covered in a little flour and bake for around 8–10 minutes or until golden brown.

Store cookies in an airtight container.

Food fun hint
Why not experiment with the kiddies and add other ingredients to the mix (e.g. 1⁄2 cup of sultana)?
