Happy Pancake Day everyone! As I’m sure you’re all well prepared for cooking pancakes later, I thought I’d bring you an alternative recipe, one that I wont be giving up for lent (as it’s just too yummy!) So today I am bringing you our Oat Biscuit/Cookie Recipe!
What You’ll Need
4ozs / 100g Plain flour
4ozs / 100g Margarine
1/2 level tsp Baking powder
4ozs / 100g Caster sugar
Large pinch Cream of tartar
4ozs / 100g Rolled oats
1/2 tsp Salt
1 level tsp Bicarbonate of soda
2 tablespoons Golden syrup
1 dessertspoon Hot water
Preheat your oven at 350F, 180C, 160C for fan ovens, Gas 4. In a large mixing bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and cream of tartar.
Beat the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the rolled oats.
Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in the hot water. Warm the syrup and add this and the bicarbonate of soda to the flour mixture. Then mix this together with the oat mixture. Leave to stand for about 20 mins.
Place neat teaspoonfuls onto a greased or lined baking tray. Make sure they are spaced apart as they will spread.
Bake in the oven for 10-15 mins until golden. Then cool on a wire rack.
