Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

If you like the look of this cookie recipe have a look at my Milk Chocolate and Fudge Cookies too.


  1. They look and sound fantastic. Perfect with a cup of tea.

  2. Now I know what to do with that golden syrup Matt bought to make honeycomb candy

  3. They look the perfect thing to eat with a cup of tea. Oats and golden syrup make great cookie pairings

  4. These cookies look so good! Thanks for sharing your recipe :)

  5. Those cookies look absolutely fantastic. I love the combo of oats and golden syrup together.

  6. We can find golden syrup here sometimes. I know for sure they would carry it at Taste of Britain.

  7. :-O! You feed your builders homemade cookies... You truly are super-pregnant-woman (if you get what I mean lol)! xxx

  8. I love homemade cookies, especially those with oats, nuts, honey, seasame seeds, raisins.
    I'll bookmark your recipe and make it once the occasion comes around.

  9. I rarely make internet posts but felt strongly compelled to for this exeptional case.

    I recently baked these cookies. They are so easy to make and one of the most satisfying baking experiences as they are simply delicious.

    I give them to my boyfriend in his packed lunch; he finds them so tasty that he refuses to share any with his colleagues.

    10/10 !

  10. I love the fact that your recipes are homely, just the kind of food I want to eat.

  11. when I make these they don't look like yours, they spread out much more... any ideas?

  12. Most likely too much syrup. Try not to be too liberal with it

  13. Sorry but I thought these were awful, they spread out and took forever to unweld from the tray. I used the syrup stated in the recipe and did not alter any of the amounts. I wouldn't try them again.

  14. I just made these with my 6 year old niece. They were easy enough for her to help, and we both *loved* them. They looked just like the ones in the photos. We'll definitely be making them again!

  15. Thanks so much for this recipe. I've made these cookies about 5 times now with the addition of choc chips, raisins and apricot cinnamon today and they have worked every time :) I used to have a similar recipe and lost it so am very pleased to have this one. Thanks again

  16. I made these this morning.. super easy, super quick and superlicious too... my son and I demolished the first batch in 60 seconds flat!!!!

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake: An Alternative Christmas Cake

Every year I make a Christmas cake and every year I'm the one that ends up eating the thing. So in a concerted effort to maintain my waistline, this year, instead of a traditional Christmas cake I'll be making an alternative Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake to enjoy. After all, who can resist the quintessentially festive chocolate orange combo?

The beauty of a biscuit cake is that it can be made 3 or 4 days ahead and left in the fridge until you want to serve it (or a cold garage if the fridge is bursting at the seams!). All you need is a dollop of clotted cream and you're sorted. If this is being made for an entirely adult audience I would use all dark chocolate in the topping.

TIPS FOR MAKING A FESTIVE BISCUIT CAKEAdd some fudge pieces or nuts if that's what your family likesDecorate with festive sprinklesIf you prefer make in a large square baking tin and cut into slices
