“This is a good recipe!” I got told by my baby boy! As he took a big bite!
He’s been going on about cookies for days because of the Cookie Monster. So I dedicated yesterday to making cookies/biscuits.
A recipe where there’s not a lot of prep. Just combining, stirring, patting and baking. I was pleasantly surprised with the snap of the biscuit and its texture is crunchy yet crumbly. I have a whole tin full of sweet delights now! I think my Cookie Monster of a son will be happy and satisfied for some time!
225g self-raising flour
200g porridge oats
225g butter/low fat spread
2 tbsp sunflower oil
1 tbsp golden syrup
1 tbsp hot water
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
• Preheat the oven to 180°c, line and grease a baking tray
• Mix the dry flour, oats and sugar in a large bowl
• Melt the butter and golden syrup on a low heat, once melted add the hot water followed by the bicarbonate of soda. Stir through, it will start to fizz and bubble
• Gently pour this into the dry ingredients and mix well. Pour in the oil and use your hands to combine everything
• Take a little of the biscuit mixture roll into a ball and pat into a disk of 4cm
Evenly lay them on the tray as they will expand in width in the oven
• Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown
Let them rest for a while on the tray as they will be soft and then transfer onto a cooling rack
• Repeat for the rest of the mixture
Once done, make a cup of tea! You’ve earned a well deserved break and don’t forget the biscuits!
