Julie’s Oat Cookies


On a recent car trip, one of Tracey’s besties had a batch of these delicious biscuits for them to nibble on. Tracey loved them so much she insisted on getting the recipe so me and the kids could make a batch for her. She’s so thoughtful, my wife.

You will need:

150g unsalted butter

150g brown sugar

2 tablespoons golden syrup

3 tablespoons milk

150g rolled oats

150g self raising flour

pinch salt

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

STEP TWO: In a saucepan, combine unsalted butter, brown sugar, golden syrup and milk and mix over a low heat until butter is melted.

STEP THREE: Stir in rolled oats, self raising flour and salt until combined.

STEP FOUR: Place small spoonfuls on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Don’t put the globs too close to each other because they spread out quite a bit.

STEP FIVE: Cook for 13 minutes (soft cookies) or 18 minutes (hard cookies). I rather cleverly aimed for 15 to give me some leeway in case I was caught on the phone or something.

STEP SIX: They’ll firm up as they cool, but meanwhile…

…I will start using the cookies as leverage, negotiating this evening’s list of chores with wife. Wish me luck 😉
