Spicy oat cookies

Thought I'd make some cookies for a change and found this recipe in my folder. They're part of my new 'healthy eating' - well oats are healthy aren't they? Forget about the butter and syrup!

It makes about 18 cookies.

115g butter
115g caster sugar
2 tbspn golden syrup
1egg
115g plain flour
1 tspn baking powder
1 tspn each of cinnamon and mixed spice
115g oats

Preheat oven to 180C/350F/gas4

Cream the butter and sugar together till it's nice and fluffy. Add the syrup and the egg and beat together.
Fold in the flour, baking powder and spices and then the oats.

Grease a couple of baking sheets and put spoonfuls of the mixture on the sheets; make sure you leave a space between each one as they spread.

Bake for about 15 mins till golden and just firm when you touch them. Leave them to cool on a wire tray.

I love oat cookies. I never thought of the cinnamon and spice. Sounds gorgeous. They look really good. Of course they are healthy and did you know cinnamon is an antioxidant too? LOL x

Thank you both.
I inherited the tea service from Mum, Brenda.I love it and it's Minton china and her maiden name [and my middle name] was Minton.
Julie, we brought the shelves back with us, as Bob made them for me and they're a wall unit, and they're now on the wall here, complete with cookery books.

I would count them as healthy, too...at least healthier than many others :D Would be so good with a cup of hot milk in this cold weather. Thanks very much for sharing. MaryMoh at http://www.keeplearningkeepsmiling.com
