Oatmeal Cookies {recipe}


 There are not many people who would (or could) pass up a good oatmeal cookie – and these are great! We made them today in a rainy New York City and they were all gone by afternoon-tea time. Every time I turned my back there were little (and big) fingers in the cookie jar.

They are quick, easy and lots of fun to make as a family – not to mention the perfect lunch box treat!

1 cup of rolled oats
1 cup of plain/all purpose flour
¾ cup of shredded coconut
½ cup of sugar
125 grams/ 4 ounces of salted butter
2 tablespoons of golden syrup (or honey if you have none)
½ a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
1 tablespoon of hot water

Heat the oven to 325f/169c. Place the rolled oats, flours, sugar and coconut into a bowl and stir until blended. In a saucepan over a low heat, melt the butter and golden syrup.

Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in the tablespoon of water and add to the melted butter and syrup mixture. Carefully mix the wet and dry ingredients together.

Form into 1 inch balls and place on a baking tray lined with a cookie sheet or non stick baking paper about 2 inches apart. Bake in the oven until they are golden in colour, approximately 10 – 12 minutes.

Remove and leave on the baking tray for a minute or two until they harden slightly and then cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight container.

Notes: Golden Syrup is a traditional English syrup and can be found at Wholefoods and a variety of other supermarkets.
