A quick and easy golden syrup and oat cookie recipe. Enjoy with a cup of tea or glass of cold milk.

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery golden syrup and oat cookies all the time when I was younger. 

They bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. Did any one else love doing that?!

These golden syrup and oat cookies take less than 10 minutes to make, and 10 minutes to bake in the oven. Handy for busy days when you just want to get your bake on, but don't have a lot of time. 

Most importantly the kids love them!

These cookies are egg free, so they are a great recipe if you, or a member of your family, have an egg allergy.

A lot of my readers have been in touch to say how much they love them.

CAN YOU FREEZE THE COOKIES?


Yes, these cookies can be frozen. Just make sure they are sealed in a tupperware box before placing in the freezer. 

The recipe can easily be doubled so why not make a double batch and freeze half? 

These syrup and oat 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 until dinner time.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING GOLDEN SYRUP AND OAT COOKIES


  1. Add a few tablespoons of desiccated coconut to the cookie mix to give them a coconut flavour.
  2. For a weekend treat, use the cookies to make ice cream sandwiches with vanilla ice cream.
  3. Cut the refined sugar by using clear runny honey instead of golden syrup.
  4. Adding a handful of raisins will give them a sweet fruity taste. You could also add a handful of chopped nuts for added texture. Walnuts or pecan nuts would work well. One of my readers has made some tasty additions to the basic recipe.

EQUIPMENT NEEDED TO MAKE THE COOKIES


The syrup and oat cookies are made using the melting method, so a heavy based saucepan* is a must have. You will also need a wooden spoon* to mix the cookie dough together, and 2 large baking sheets* to bake the cookies on.

        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?

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

          ReplyDelete
        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!

        19. I made a batch of these cookies last week and they were really yummy! �� There aren’t very many left but I am going to freeze some. I had to bake them for 15 mins at 160 in my fan oven. However they came out with a crispy edge and a chewy middle which is the best combination! Not sure how I managed that, but anyway! I assumed I needed half a teaspoon of bicarb although the recipe doesn’t seem to state the spoon size, unless I missed something somewhere! My mum enjoyed them too! Thank you for the recipe! I was thinking about putting some raisins in next time I make a batch!
