Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Grease baking trays.
In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and dark brown soft sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg then stir in the milk and vanilla. Mix in the flour, oats, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon until well blended. Fold in the walnuts and if desired, raisins. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared baking trays.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking tray for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
This sticky dough had no inclination to spread so the cookies ended up like mini rock cakes. They are more of a cake than a cookie and are definitely not chewy at all.
They taste good though.
I cooked mine for 14 minutes just to get them to brown otherwise they would have been a bit anemic looking.
Not a recipe to save in my opinion. - 08 Feb 2014
