Oaty spiced cookies, just the smell makes you feel hungry. Cinnamon and ginger hangs in the air and the bite of the oats almost convinces you they are healthy.
I’m well and truly bored with lockdown, but one of the benefits is that I can’t rush around, going places. This means I’ve managed to find time this week to bake with my kids.
This is mine and my son’s go to recipe. It’s simple to make and they’re great with a glass of milk or as a treat on a woodland walk or adventure.
To make them you need:
- 120g unsalted butter (at room temperature)
- 90g soft dark brown sugar
- 2 tbsp golden syrup
- 2 tbsp boiling water
- 120g plain flour
- 60g rolled oats
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp ginger
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Optional (I know you will) Cinnamon sugar to scatter over. To make I simply mix 2 tbsp caster sugar with 1 tsp cinnamon.
Put the oven on at 180c and line two baking trays with parchment.
Cream the butter and sugar
Then add the rest of the ingredients and mix together.
Spoon rounded teaspoons of the ingredients onto the trays and slightly flatten each mound. Then sprinkle each cookie with the cinnamon sugar.
Bake for 15 mins and then cool on a rack.
