Wheat free oatmeal cookie recipe

Here's the recipe for the cookies we made for gifts at Christmas. We are still making them on a weekly basis for one of our friends - she liked them so much. You can make this amount, but only bake what you need and freeze the rest - they cook well from frozen.

Wheat free oatmeal cookie recipe
6oz (170g) butter
1 cup (230g) brown sugar
.5 cup (95g) white sugar
2 eggs
dash vanilla
1.5 (200g) cups spelt flour
1tsp baking soda
.5 tsp salt
2.5 (200g) cups porridge oats
.5 (75g) cup millet
Milk to soak millet, and perhaps a bit more.

To flavour - chocolate chips, cinnamon & raisin, dried cranberries and white chocolate chips

Soak the millet in the milk. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C/340 degrees F

Cream the butter and sugar. Add the eggs and flour and mix well. Add everything except the flavourings. Add a little extra milk if necessary to make it slightly runny. If you are using multiple flavourings, divide into 2 or 3 parts, and flavour individually. You need 1 cup of raisin or chocolate chips for the whole mix, so divide this as appropriate.

Use a small teaspoon spoon to drop tiny amounts on a baking sheet - they will spread a little and bake for 10-15 minutes.

Once they are a little brown, place on a cooling rack, and try to stop eating them!
