Before I made these, I was really craving something sweet, but didn’t want to be slaving away in the kitchen for hours. These are so quick to make, but so delicious at the same time. And the addition of oats makes them feel semi healthy,… OK, maybe minus the chocolate chunks, but you get the idea! If you actually did want them to be slightly more healthy, then you could always add raisins instead of chocolate. Just to mix it up!
These will last for around a week if stored in an air tight container. But to be honest, I doubt you’ll have any left by then. I shared mine with friends so they went super fast. But I reckon my boyfriend and I could have easily devoured them in a few sittings! They’re extremely moreish.
75g self raising flour, sifted
75g porridge oats
75g caster sugar
75g unsalted butter
1 tbsp golden syrup
1 tbsp whole milk
150g milk chocolate chunks (I used Cadburys Dairy Milk)
Pre-heat your oven to 180°C and line two baking trays with baking paper.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, oats and sugar.
In a saucepan, melt together the butter, golden syrup and milk until smooth.
Add to your dry ingredients and combine.
Add in your chocolate chunks and mix until evenly distributed.
Shape your mixture in to 12 flat balls and place on your baking trays.
Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes until golden.
Leave to cool on a wire rack.
