Last month my friend Barbara, winosandfoodies
who is a brilliant cook and just happens to have been featured as 'Cook of the Week'
in the Courier Mail, Taste magazine section,
mentioned a recipe for Oat (Cookies) Biscuits and how easy they are to make. I'm always looking for easy recipes so I decided to give them a try. My first mistake was not taking another look at Barbara's picture of the biscuits
to remind myself not to over cook them. Also I think I might have been a little generous with the golden syrup as it was the end of a tin!!!
However, even overcooked they make a delicious crispy snack with a cup of coffee!!
I should mention they are not for those on diets, except maybe for the oats!!
OAT COOKIES (BISCUITS)
150 grams sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
150 grams butter
2 tablespoons milk
150 grams porridge oats
150 grams self raising flour
Heat oven to 180C
In a saucepan - melt sugar, syrup, butter and milk over a low heat until dissolved.
Add oats and flour, stirring well.
Place teaspoons of mix onto baking paper lined tray.
Bake 10 - 15 minutes.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from tray.
So Barbara, sorry not to have done your biscuits justice, I will make them again and hope to get it right next time. You can see why I would never, ever, be featured in a food magazine. I might, just, get a mention in something like this though !!!!
