A "Lil Bit of This-and-That' Cookies

Made these cookies for the gathering, at my Mom's last week.
They were a hit with my nieces & nephews ..!

...sharing the recipe....
A "Lil Bit of This-and-That" Cookies

550 gm - Mixture of Cereals, such as:-
1 Cup - YoGood Honey Toasted Muesli
1 Cup - Rolled Oat
1 Cup - Black Raisins
1 Cup - Assorted nuts (walnut, pecan, macadamia, cashew, etc...)
1/2 cup - Chococolate chips
(above does'nt have to be exact as long as everything makes about 550 gm.
In fact you can use any cereal of your choice)
540 gm - Butter/Margarine
350 gm - Brown Sugar (I use brown sugar-less sweet)
550 gm - All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 teaspn - Sodium Bicarbonate
1 - large Egg
1 teaspn - Vanilla
2 tablespn - Maple Syrup (optional)

Cream butter+sugar.
Add Egg +vanila+ bicarbonate soda.
Add maple syrup (if using).
Pour in the cereals (Oats+Nuts+Choc Chips)
Once mixed, slowly add the flour
(this you need to use your hand to mix the dough - trust me, it will be much easier to handle..!).
Once evenly mixed, spoon dough onto a baking sheet.
Make sure you give room in between the cookies coz it will expand a bit.
Bake in 250 deg oven, or until golden brown. Let it cool on a rack.

Last but not least...

...a plate of freshly baked oat cookies for my friend...Dali, for her afternoon tea.
