These biscuits are a great alternative to shop bought snacks. Packed full of oats, sultanas and ginger and they only take 30 minutes to make.
If you want a soft chewy gingery biscuit, that could be ready in 30 minutes time, read the recipe below.
So they started life as a “can I make a cake bar that my kids will eat instead of those things in packets”.
Then I thought these might work as a biscuit and now I’m making them twice a week.
They are simple to make and, though there’s the obligatory butter and sugar, are packed with oats and sultanas.
It takes about 10 minutes to make them, you can basically put the oven on to warm up and by the time the light goes off be ready to put them in.
- 120g unsalted butter
- 150g dark brown sugar
- 40g golden syrup
- 120g self raising flour
- 120g sultanas
- 120g porridge oats
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp ginger
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Put the oven on at 180c and line a large baking tray with parchment.
Weigh the butter, sugar and golden syrup into a pan and put on a medium heat to melt.
Weigh out everything else into a bowl, apart from the egg.
Once the butter and sugar are melted take off the heat and allow it to cook for a couple of minutes, meanwhile crack the egg into the bowl and mix in with a spoon. Now add the butter mixture and stir through.
Using a dessert spoon, spoon mounds onto the baking, allow for the biscuit to spread to about double the width during baking.
Bake at 180 for 12 mins until brown, but slightly soft.
Allow to cool on the tray for 5 minutes (like a cookie) and then transfer to a cooling rack.
