These are the cookies you can pretend are healthy because they have oats in… right?
Or maybe not, but either way they are gooey or crunchy (depending on how you like them) and are a lovely little snack or good with a cuppa.
– 125g margarine/butter
– 125g caster sugar
– 125g self raising flour
– 125g oats
– 30ml golden syrup
– 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
– 150g chocolate chips
1) Preheat the oven to 180C/350F and grease & line two baking sheets
2) Heat the butter, sugar, and syrup in a pan on the hob until the butter has basically melted, but not too much (the sugar shouldn’t have boiled)
3) Put all the dry ingredients in a bowl with 100g of the chocolate chips
4) If you leave the sugar/butter mix to cool slightly and then pour it on top, the chocolate chips will remain whole, however if you pour the sugar/butter mix on when still hot it will melt the chocolate to make the mix even gooier (I did it this way)!
5) Put small spoonfuls of the mixture onto the baking sheets and flatten slightly into cookie shapes, then sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips on top
6) Bake for 10-15 minutes (the shorter amount of time will be nice and gooey, the longer time will make them nice and crunchy!)
7) They should be lovely and golden when they come out the oven, leave to cool on a wire rack!
Tips and Ideas
This is a variation on a Dr Oetker recipe
If you eat them straight out of the oven they will be VERY hot, so wait a couple of mines and have it when its warm – HEAVEN!!
