Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

An easy and quick egg free golden syrup and oat cookie recipe.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery golden syrup and oat 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. These cookies are also egg free so perfect if you have an egg allergy.

Can You Freeze The Cookies?

Yes, these cookies can be frozen. Just make sure they are sealed in a tupperware box. Why not make a double batch and freeze half? These cookies are perfect for after school snacks. I always take some to the kids sports clubs after school to keep the hunger pangs at bay.

Top Tips for Making Golden Syrup & Oat Cookies

  • Add a few tablespoons of desiccated coconut to the cookie mix to give them a coconut flavour.
  • Change it up by adding a handful of raisins or chopped walnuts to the mixture.
  • Use the cookies to make ice cream sandwiches with vanilla ice cream
  • Cut the refined sugar by using honey instead of syrup.

  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!!!!
