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!!!!

    Thank you very much.. will be popping in regulartly now :-)

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

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.
