Yummy Oatmeal Cookies!!!!!!!

Advantages: Quick & simple to make, little washing up, suitable for children to make
I got this recipe from my mum who always made these when I was younger. It is such a simple recipe and ideal for children to make.
4oz/100g granulated sugar
1 tablespoon golden syrup
4oz/100g self raising flour
Simply melt the margarine, sugar and golden syrup gently in a saucepan. When melted add the flour and porridge oats (I always use Tesco Value oats as these have a nice course texture) stir the mixture well until all the flour and oats have been mixed into the melted margarine sugar and syrup.
Let it cool slightly then with your hands roll the mixture into little balls (about walnut size)
Place them on a greased tray well apart and bake for 20minutes at gas4/350f/180c.
When cooked leave to cool for five minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
The recipe says this should make 18 but I never find I get that many out of that amount of mixture.
If you want to make the cookies a bit different you can add sultanas, cherries, chocolate chips or chopped apple to the mixture before the flour and oats are added. Really you could add anything you like.
Another good way to make these is to press the mixture into a square tin and bake then when cool cut into fingers, they are like cereal bars and so much nicer than shop ones.
Give this one a try, children will love rolling the mixture and there isn't a lot of washing up to do as everything is done in one saucepan!
Summary: Easy to make oatmeal cookies!!!!!!!!
