Not too sweet, these everyday biscuits can be easily adapted: you could add a handful of sultanas or sunflower seeds.


  • 100g margerine or butter
  • 50g soft brown sugar
  • 1 dessertspoon golden syrup
  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 100g porridge oats
  • 1 heaped tsp ground ginger/or more to taste


  • STEP 1
    Preheat oven to 180c. Cover a baking sheet with parchment. In a large saucepan, gently melt the margerine, sugar and golden syrup, stirring all the time. Remove from the heat.
  • STEP 2
    Add to the pan the flour, oats, ground ginger and any variants, such as a handful of raisins or sunflower seeds. Lightly mix. Put dessertspoons of the mix onto the baking sheet and flatten a little.
  • STEP 3
    Bake for 15-20 minutes. They'll continue to firm up on a wire rack.
