This is an all time favourite recipe. Same amount oats, flour and butter. I halve the sugar though. No getting fingers dirty, and fast to make. What's not to like?

So easy and fun to make with kids. Delicious, will make again with different variations. Simple store cupboard ingredients too.

These are fab! I've made cranberry & choc chip, lemon, honey & ginger, chocolate-orange versions and simply with sultanas. I like to reduce the sugar content, especially if I use fruit. Only ever made them with gluten free flour, which needs a bit of extra milk, but they always turn out great.

These are great. I also made them with 50g Fruit and Nut Muesli substituted for 50g of the oats. Blitzed in food processor to make smaller chunks.

These are great I made them but substituted the syrup for nutella and just added an extra tbls of milk as nutella is a bit dryer than the syrup and it is amazing

Simple and delicious every time. Prefer wholemeal flour but lovely using white too. Also good with a little cinnamon or ground ginger. Never last very long in my house.

I used plain flour instead of wholemeal. Lovely biscuits. One leads to another...

These are dangerously tasty :) we had no golden syrup so used honey instead and they were delicious and easy to make with children. Thank you Tinchen for the recipe

Use Vegan Margarine and Oat Milk to make this vegan. Tastes great
