Try to avoid shop bought biscuits, as they often contain an assortment of toxic colours and flavours. Even if an ingredients list appears safe, you need to be aware that some 'safe' cooking ingredients, for example vegetable oils, often contain Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA, also known as 320) which is linked to many health problems including headaches, asthma and is a known carcinogenic substance.
These yummy biscuits look awesome with icing letters piped onto them. Try piping the individual letters of the birthday child's name onto each biscuit.
Preparation Time: 25 Minutes
Cooking Time: 10-12 Minutes
Makes: 40 Large Biscuits (approximately)
2 Tablespoons golden syrup
1½ Cups plain flour
1 Teaspoon aluminium free baking powder
3 Cups oats
1½ Cups brown sugar
A little water if required to help bind ingredients
STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 160ºC and line two large baking trays with grease proof paper.
STEP 2: Melt the butter and golden syrup together in a small saucepan on the stove.
STEP 3: Add the remaining ingredients into the butter mixture and stir with a spoon until well combined. Don't worry if the mixture is crumbly, it will all stick together once cooked.
STEP 4: Press together about 1 tablespoon at a time, into flat balls on the baking tray, leave a little room, as they will spread a tiny bit.
STEP 5: Place them into the oven for 10-12 minutes or until the biscuits start to turn a golden brown.
STEP 6: Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the trays before storing in an airtight container in a cool dry place.
If you are finding that the mixture is too dry and crumbly, just add a splash of water.
