These decorated oaty cookies are hands-on baking fun for little ones. We used ready-made squeezy icing tubes for some easy decorating.
Time: 45 minutes
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's
75g self raising flour
1 tablespoon golden syrup
1 tablespoon milk
Squeezy tubes of icing
Baking paper and tray
Squeezy tubes of icing make the decorating easy and fun for little hands
Wash your hands well first and preheat an oven to 180 degrees. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Mix the oats, sugar and flour in a bowl using spoons or hands.
Add the golden syrup to another bowl with the butter. Lift the syrup spoon up high and watch the syrup flowing and oozing as it drops from the spoon. Add the milk then microwave until melted (about a minute).
Lovely golden syrup
Add the melted ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well.
Get stuck in
Make small balls of mix and squash then flat onto the baking paper tray. Leave space in between each cookie as they will spread in the oven.
Bake for around 12 minutes. The cookies will harden further as they cool so don't worry if they still feel a little squashy.
Ready to decorate
When they have cooled, have fun decorating with squeeze tubes of icing. You could try faces, letters, squiggles etc.
