xHannahx’s travel cookies

May 1st, 2009 · post by xhannahx · Make a comment

Summer’s here! The days are longer, the sun’s shining a little more than normal (maybe?) and it’s time for picnics and road trips! I first made these cookies while Phil Chokeword and I were travelling round Canada last year and they were were great pick me ups on long hikes!  We needed something that was super cheap as we were skint, and easy and quick to make in a crowded hostel! They’re also really good at not getting squished in your bag and last about 5 days ish? (If you don’t scoff them!)

What you need:
* 2 cups self raising flour
* ½ tsp salt
* 1 cup sugar
* ½ cup vegetable oil (NOT olive!!!!!!)
* 1 tsp vanilla essence
* ¼ cup cold water
* 1 cup – ish of chocolate chips/ a 100g bar bashed up

What you do:

1. Pre heat the oven to 170˚C.

2. Add the flour, salt and sugar into a large mixing bowl and stir until mixed.


3. Add all the other ingredients and mix using a wooden spoon or your hands (I like getting sticky mitts!). If the mixture is too crumbly keep adding a LITTLE oil and water and mixing until its sticky!


4. Roll a handful of the mixture into a ball and push onto a greased oven tray. (Keep them about 1cm thick so they’re all soft in the middle!)

5. Repeat this until all the mixture is used.

6. Pop them in the oven for about 10 mins. (They’re ready when the top feels firm and they are slightly golden brown.

7. Leave them to cool for about 10 mins as they will be very soft then scoop them onto a wire rack/ plate to cool.
