Chef Gregg Wallace and greengrocer Chris Bavin have returned for the new series of Eat Well for Less.
The latest episode (episode 3, October 22nd) of the BBC One programme introduced us to the Killeen family from Bromsgrove.
The family needed help and advice on how to cut down takeaway meals, cook healthy dishes and save money at their dinner table.
One of the recipes that Gregg Wallace made was a healthy version of oat cookies – here’s how to make them step-by-step.
Oat cookies: Ingredients
For the oat cookies, you will need ingredients that you can easily find in your pantries.
The recipe requires 175 grams oats, 125 grams oatmeal, 50 grams brown sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon baking powder, a handful of dried raisins (or other dried fruits to your own taste).
You will also need 1-2 tablespoons low-fat spread, 1 teaspoon vanilla essence, 1-2 tablespoons apple sauce, 2 eggs and a handful of dark chocolate chips.

How to make the oat cookies from Eat Well for Less
Step 1: Place the oats and the oatmeal in a big bowl. Add sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and dried fruits to the mix.
Step 2: Mix all ingredients together. Melt the low-fat spread in a pan. Let it cool and pour it into the mix. Add the vanilla essence, apple sauce and eggs and mix again.
Step 3: Using a spoon, place the oat cookies on a baking tray. Bake for approximately 15 minutes at 180 degrees.
Step 4: Melt the dark chocolate chips in a heat-resistant bowl in a microwave or by using the old way of a saucepan on top of another one filled with water. For the step-by-step guide on this, check out this article.
Step 5: Take the cookies from the oven and drizzle with the melted chocolate. The last step is to eat and enjoy these healthy treats!
