Oatmeal cookies with goji berries

I love cookies, all kind of cookies!!! Those oatmeal cookies are not only delicious but also very healthy and that's because of the rich in antioxidants goji berries also known as wolfberries. This amazing little super-fruit also contains natural anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal compounds and is loaded with vitamin C. Great treat for the coming cold winter days!!!!

  • 1 cup of oats
  • 125g butter, softened
  • 100g sugar
  • 120g flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 package vanilla sugar or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • a handful of goji berries 
  • a handful of cranberries
  • a handful of chopped almonds
  • a handful of chopped hazelnuts
  • 1/2 handful of dry coconut pieces
  • 1/2 handful of dry mango pieces

Preheat the oven to 180ÂșC 

Pour the oats into a dry pan a fry for approx. 2-3 minutes until the oats get a golden color  In a mixing bowl whisk together butter and sugar and vanilla sugar. Beat in eggs and whisk again. Add flour with the baking powder, salt, and stir until combined. Mix in oats, berries and nuts. 
Use a spoon to form your cookies and place them on the baking sheet, cookies should be 2cm apart from each other. Bake for 10-12 minutes until they get a nice golden color. Cool down and bite in ;)
