Today's nutritious recipe from Kinder Kitchen - Chocolate Oaties

These are a great snack and a winner at children's parties. They are yummy and nutritious at the same time.

Chocolate oaties (from 12 months)

100g butter at room temperature
100g sugar
1 egg
75g self raising flour
100g rolled (porridge) oats
30g cocoa powder
50 grams chopped apricots or dried cranberries or whole raisins

1. In a bowl, mix the butter and sugar together until they are light and fluffy. Then whisk in the egg. Now add the flour, oats and cocoa powder and finely chopped fruit.
2. On a greased baking tray (or on baking paper), spoon a teaspoon of the mixture onto the tray and flatten slightly remembering to leave at least 3cm between each oatie.
3. Place the tray into an oven at 180°C/ gas mark 4 and bake for 12-15 minutes.
4. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before placing on a cooling rack.

To keep fresh, place them in an airtight container or in the fridge.
