Chocolate oaties

I bought Good Housekeeping magazine this week and in it are some fantastic classic biscuit recipes including custard creams, iced rings and chocolate oaties, which my son and I made yesterday. They are truly delicious and so unbelievably easy to make!


125 g (4 oz) butter, plus extra to grease

125 g (4 oz) self-raising flour

125 g (4 oz) light brown soft sugar

125 g (4 oz) porridge oats

half teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

1 tablespoon golden syrup

125 g (4 oz) milk or plain chocolate

How to make

1. Preheat oven at gas mark 4 (180 degrees c/160 degrees c for fan oven)

2. Mix together the flour, oats, sugar and soda

3. In a small pan melt the butter and syrup then add this to the dry mixture and combine

4. Divide mixture into around 16 and roll each portion into a ball.

5. Arrange on the greased baking tray(s), spacing apart and squash each one down a little

6. Bake for  15 – 18 minutes or until golden brown, take out leave to cool for 3 minutes

7. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely

8. Melt the chocolate either in a bowl over a pan of simmering water or in the microwave oven

9. Once melted you can drizzle the chocolate over the biscuits, use a pastry brush to paint it on or spread it over the top (this is what I opted for) or you can leave them plain if you are not bothered about the chocolate ( I did both)

10. And voila…

…yummy chocolate oaties!
