Oat and Raisin Biscuits

8oz self raising flour
5oz sugar
8oz porridge oats
Handful of raisins or sultanas
8oz butter or margarine
1 tablespoon golden syrup
Half a teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 tablespoon of water

Mix the flour, oats, raisins and sugar in a bowl. In a saucepan, melt the butter, syrup and water. Stir the bicarbonate of soda into the wet ingrediants. Pour the contents of the saucepan into the bowl with the dry ingrediants and mix well.

Make small balls of the mixture and place them onto a greased baking tray. Squash them down slightly with a fork. The biscuits will raise/spread. I made 28 biscuits from the mixture but they were a little big for toddlers.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees. They need to be golden rather than brown, this will take roughly 15 minutes.

The original recipe used 8oz of sugar but I found it made them too sweet. I reduced the sugar and decided to add raisins. I tried adding chocolate chips once but the heat from the butter melted them!
