Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 1/4 tsp bi-carbonate soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 100 g dried cranberries
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips

Instructions

  • To make 'cookies in a jar' you'll need a 1 litre glass jar. 
  • In a small bowl, mix the plain flour, baking powder, bi-carb soda and salt together. 
  • Carefully spoon the flour mixture into the bottom of the glass jar. Gently move the flour around so that you have an even layer. 
  • Gently spoon the brown sugar in an even layer over the flour. 
  • Continue creating layers in the following order: caster sugar, rolled oats, dried cranberries, white chocolate chips. 
  • Close the lid of the glass jar (if you have any extra space at the top of the jar, simply top up with extra chocolate chips). 
  • Print out our free recipe gift tag and attach to the jar with a ribbon (see notes). 

Notes

If you would prefer to handwrite your own gift tag rather than use our free printable, simply write: Preheat oven to 190 degrees celsius. Pour ingredients into a large bowl. Add 125g melted butter, 1 lightly beaten egg & 1 tsp vanilla extract. Mix well. Roll the mixture into balls and place onto a large baking tray. cook for 10-15 minutes or until lightly golden.
 
To create even layers in the jar, use a spoon to gently add each layer of ingredients. You can also use a dry tea towel or paper towel to wipe down the inside of the glass as you go.
