These cookies are so easy to make and are actually good for you, because they contain oats which help steady blood sugar, of course there is some sugar and butter as well and they are even better dipped in melted chocolate, but.. there are the oats! Make them today for the weekend , they keep well in an airtight container for up to a week.
Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies
125g self -raising flour
125g light brown sugar
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1tbsp golden syrup
125g melted chocolate
Heat the oven to 180 and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
In a large bowl mix together the sugar,flour, oats and bicarbonate of soda.
Melt the butter and golden syrup together over a low heat in a small saucepan and add to the dry ingredients and mix well.
Divide the mixture into about 16 balls and lay them on the baking tray, then flatten them a little with a spoon.
Bake for 15 - 20 minutes until golden then cool for about ten minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Melt the chocolate over a very low heat and then use to decorate the biscuits.
Transfer the biscuits to a wire rack so the chocolate hardens before serving.
