More baking

Today I made Oatie Cake things. After my last post Donk sent me his trail snacks recipe. They are yummy, I think they win over flapjacks. Made this morning, took two to work, came home Ali had found them not many left now!


  1. They can keep you going for ever! Never look that good when I make them tho :-)

  2. I have to make more, Ali has eaten them all! She is addicted to them!

  3. Here you go simon

    Oat biscuits6oz / 150g margarine6oz / 150g plain flour6oz / 150g Demerara (brown) sugar2 tablespoons Golden Syrup½ tsp Bicarbonate of Soda8oz / 200g porridge oats (Approx, see below)Preheat the oven to 180 Celsius / 350 Fahrenheit / Gas Mk 4.Gently melt the margarine and golden syrup in a pan.Whilst this is melting, mix all the other ingredients in a large bowl and lightly grease 2 big baking trays.Mix the melted butter into the dry ingredients. This should produce a stiff mixture that will easily hold its shape when rolled into a ball. If not, add more oats to stiffen it up.Roll into balls about 1 to 1½ inches in diameter and place on the tray.Bake until LIGHLY browned. In our fan oven this takes exactly 8 minutes. It may take longer in standard ovens, but I can't see it being any more that 2-3 minutes more.(If they spread out too much, you need more oats next time) Optional Extras -Add 100g sultanas straight into the above recipe for a jucier biscuit!Substitute 50g of the sugar for 50g of mixed chopped nuts for a bit more crunch.
