I’m definitely going through a baking-obsessed phase at the moment, so expect a lot of recipes to come your way over the next few weeks…
Today I was craving cookies, but decided to try something a little different. So, I went for these chocolate covered oat biscuits which taste ah-mazing and were ridiculously easy to make. It genuinely took me under an hour to make these!
The mixture is almost like a flapjack, but once cooked these turn into delicious crunchy, crumbly biscuits covered in chocolatey goodness. You can go the whole hog and completely cover these in chocolate, but I decided to be a little reserved (for once..)
I hope you enjoy!
125g self-raising flour
125g light soft brown sugar
125g rolled oats
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 heaped tbsp golden syrup
- Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4 and line two baking trays with parchment paper.
- Start by combining the flour, sugar, oats and bicarbonate of soda in a large bowl, and set aside.
- Next, melt the butter and golden syrup together in a small pan, making sure not to overheat. Once melted, add to flour mixture and combine until sticky.
- Roll the mixture into 18 walnut-size balls. Don’t worry if they seem a bit dry at first, the heat of your hands will mold them together.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
- Once the biscuits are cooled, melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. The method you use to coat the biscuits is completely up to you – you can dip them in the bowl, use a piping bag to create a special design, or, like me, you can use a pastry brush (I find this gives more control of the thickness).
And you’re done! These really are super easy, perfect to make with kids on a rainy day! Let me know if you do recreate them, I’d love to know how they turned out!
