oaty delight biscuits

I love oats. Here’s a fibre-filled biscuit I call Oaty Delights. It’s my adaption of what was originally an Anzac biscuit recipe. However, I’ve deviated so far from the original over the years that it’s become a new invention.

I  often vary the amount of oats, golden syrup and butter so it’s best to experiment.

Preheat oven to 180 degrees

3 cups oats (or more)
1 cup plain flour
125 grams butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 large tablespoons golden syrup
1/2 teaspoon bi-carbonate of soda
3 teaspoons water

Heat butter in saucepan until melted and then turn off the gas
Add the golden syrup to the melted butter
Add water
Add the bicarb of soda (this will fizz when added to the mixture)

Combine the oats, flour and sugar in a bowl
Pour in the butter mixture
Mix together until all the ingredients have blended together. The mixture will be slightly sticky. However, if the mixture is too sticky then it won’t cook properly. Add more oats if needed.
Roll the mixture into palm sized balls

Grease a flat baking tray
Place biscuits on tray and then press down to slightly flatten them.

Place in oven and cook for 10 – 15 minutes or until biscuits turn golden brown.

Cool on rack or eat while still hot.  Either way they are delicious.
