One of the products in this month's Degustabox that got the biggest squeals of delight was this bag of Delicious Alchemy Gluten Free Oaty Cookie Mix.
All you need to add is 75g melted butter or non-dairy equivalent and 30ml of water.
A peek inside the bag revealed a crumbly oaty mixture that already smelt nice.
Pierre came to help, using a spatula to squish the last bits of unmelted butter.
Then pouring in the cookie mix.
A quick stir was all that was needed. Pierre was already sneaking spoonfuls out of the bowl when he thought I wasn't looking and making appreciative murmurs !
We decided to jazz things up by using up the end of a bag of mini Smarties.
The mixture is lovely to work with. It's soft and squidgy but holds its shape really well so I just dolloped little piles on a foil-lined baking tray and shaped them with the spatula. The pack says you should get ten cookies but we got seven - they came out quite large though so you could easily make them smaller.
After 15 minutes in the oven, they were ready to devour. They were beautifully sweet and chewy and the kids kept coming back for more ! Very impressive for cookies that are gluten-free, suitable for vegetarians and dairy-free (the mix, not my cookies, which contained butter and milk chocolate).
RRP : £1.99

As I used up the end of the mini Smarties, I'll add this to this month's #KitchenClearout linkie.
Disclosure : I received the product in this month's Degustabox.
