Yes, Mrs Field’s cookies in the Thermomix. So easy, and so yum!
The secret ingredient to make them oh-so-Mrs-Field-like is the ground oatmeal. And, of course, your Thermomix does just the job! My five year old and I made this batch this afternoon. We used Nuttelex for our batch as my little man is dairy intolerant. The browning wasn’t quite as good, but they certainly got the thumbs up from him.
When it comes to tedious tasks like rolling biscuits, folding wontons etc, I usually get my kids involved. Place the dough back into the bowl you used for the oats and chocolate, and pass it to them to roll out the balls. I usually give their work the ‘once over’, rearranging the balls evenly and flattening them out with a fork or my fingers.
If you don’t have any little helpers on hand and want to make the job quicker for yourself, roll the mixture into a log (or two), wrap in glad wrap and refrigerate for 1/2 hour. Then slice it and place on the baking tray. You can make a double batch of the mixture and then freeze one quantity in the logs (pre-sliced and wrapped). Simply remove from the freezer, defrost the biscuits until they can be separated and place in the oven. Perfect for the mornings when you want a quick homemade lunchbox treat.

We made our batch with Nuttelex so that they were dairy free. As a result, they didn’t brown quite as well as they do if you use butter.
If you want to make them yourselves, a quicker way is to roll the mixture into a log (or two), wrap in glad wrap and refrigerate for ½ hour. Then slice it and place on the baking tray. I often make a double batch of the mixture and then freeze one lot in these logs (pre-sliced and wrapped). Simply remove from the freezer and defrost until they can be separated and place in the oven. Perfect if we have run out of homemade lunchbox goodies.
