- 2 cups self-raising flour
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups porridge oats
- 250g butter
- 1 tbsp golden syrup
- 1 tbsp hot water
- 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Preheat oven to 180c.
Mix flour, oats and sugar together in a large mixing bowl.
Melt the butter, syrup and water in a pan – once melted stir in the bicarbonate of soda.
Add the butter mixture to the dry ingredients, and combine well.
Make smallish balls – about the size of a large unshelled walnut! Place it on a greased tray and flatten slightly.
Bake at 180oc for about 12 mins – they should be golden, not brown.
Allow them to cool on the tray.
If you put them on foil, you can transfer the foil to a wire rack… then they cool down more quickly… and then you can chow down even quicker! Bonus!
