Swedish “Havrekakor” … Oat Cookies

Here is the last and final cookie for the week. Yay! Don’t worry ;)… in the future, I wouldn’t be surprised if I baked some more Swedish cookies. The seventh biscuit is “Havrekaka” (in Eng. Oat cookie). The one I have baked is just a plain and simple one, but still tastes lovely. You can use different kinds of toppings such as dark chocolate if you want. 😀


Recipe (makes 18) 

  • 100 gr butter, at room temperature
  • 0.5 dl caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup
  • ½ hjorthornssalt or 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 dl oatmeal
  • ½ tablespoon vanilla sugar
  • 1 dl plain flour

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.

Cut the butter into small pieces and put them into a bowl.

Pour caster sugar and syrup into the same bowl.

Whisk the three ingredients until you get a smooth mixture. Thereafter, add the hjorthornssalt or baking powder into the bowl.

Add the oatmeal, flour and vanilla sugar. Mix until you get a bit crumbly mixture.

Make small balls and put them onto the parchment paper on the baking sheet.

Flatten every ball with help of a fork.

Bake in the middle of the oven, 10-12 minutes.

You can store them in the fridge or in the freezer!

Happy Oat Horse Baking! 😀
