Serves: 35 

  • 65 g butter
  • 150 g original rolled oats
  • 1 egg

Prep:30min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Use 2 baking trays; line with baking paper. Preheat oven to 180°C. Melt butter in a pan, add rolled oats and brown them lightly; stir constantly. Transfer to a large plate and allow to cool.
  2. Beat egg, sugar and spices with electric beaters until very fluffy. Stir in the oats, dried fruit and the lemon zest.
  3. Using a moistened teaspoon, form mixture into 35 walnut-sized mounds and place on baking trays about 5 cm apart; the macaroons expand as they cook.
  4. Bake the cookies, one tray at a time, on the top shelf of the oven for 15–18 minutes until light brown. Place on a wire rack to cool.
