I needed to make something for the boys' school lunchboxes tomorrow, and I had run out of eggs - so I decided to try Vi's Mum's oat cookies.
Melt butter, sugar and golden syrup gently in a pan, and in a large bowl combine flour, oats and bicarb.
I used half white and half brown sugar because I like the caramel-like flavour that the brown sugar adds, and I also stirred in a handful of sultanas.
Stir the melted ingredients into the flour and oats, then put dessertspoonfuls on a baking tray.
Cook at 180 C for 12 - 15 mins. Leave to cool for a few minutes before moving to a cooling rack.
100 g SR flour
100 g porridge oats
1/2 level tsp bicarb
100 g butter
100 g sugar (I used 80 g)
1 tbsp golden syrup
