Advantages: delicious, easy to make
Disadvantages: a bit fattening
Many years ago, my mother was very kind to an old lady who, as an extra special thanks, gave her her secret recipe for Oat Biscuits.
They're really simple to make and very scrummy. Not only that but, since they're made with oats, you can sort of kid yourself that they're not that unhealthy - good for the cholesterol levels? Hmmm, shame about the fat though...
Enough guilt. Here's the recipe:
1 cup of oats
1 teaspoon golden syrup
4oz marge (naughty me tends to use butter, though)
half teaspoon bicarb of soda
1 teaspoon boiling water
4oz self raising flour
optional few drops of vanilla.
1)Cream the fat and the sugar until smooth. 2)Add the syrup, diluted with the boiling water and the vanilla, if wanted.
3)Work in the flour and bicarb, then the oats.
4)Make small, walnut sized balls of the mixture and place them on a greased or non-stick baking tray.
5)Bake in a moderate oven - 325F or 160/170C or Gas mark 3 for about 15 minutes.
Finally, try to let them cool down a bit before you scoff the lot.
