Gluten and Dairy Free Golden Syrup Oat Cookies
I really wanted to do some baking but with our cupboard being a little on the empty side I had to have a good look at the ingredients I did have and think of what I could make. At the moment with all that is going on, I haven’t been able to get my hands on any eggs. This makes baking a little challenging! But I have managed to make some cookies that are egg free! They are also gluten-free and dairy-free and really easy to make. Hopefully, you have these ingredients in your cupboard and you can make them too! I tried making some biscuits recently that were egg free and they were pretty tasty but they used chocolate chips which I no longer have in stock! I looked in my cupboard and found that I had oats, flour, dairy-free margarine and I thought surely I can make something with those! They also use golden syrup, vanilla extract and bicarbonate of soda. If you don’t have any golden syrup, you could substitute it with honey. If you had any raisins you could add some of those in there for some extra flavour. I used Vitalite for these cookies as that is what I had in my fridge, but any dairy-free spread will work. If you don’t need them to be dairy-free you can use any butter or margarine.
Here is the full list of ingredients that you will need to make these cookies:
100g light brown sugar
2 tbsp golden syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
100g gluten free self raising flour
110g gluten free oats
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
First you will need to pre-heat the oven to 180 C (160 C for a fan oven) and lightly grease and line two baking trays.
In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, oats and bicarbonate of soda and set aside. In a small saucepan melt the butter over a low heat. When it has melted, add the sugar to the saucepan and stir until melted. Then add the golden syrup and stir until well combined. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla extract.
Add the butter mixture to the flour, oats and bicarbonate of soda and stir until everything is well combined.
Next, spoon the mixture onto the baking trays with a teaspoon, making sure you leave enough spcae between them for them to spread during cooking. You should have enough mixture to make 12 cookies.
Bake for ten minutes until the cookies are golden brown. Leave them to cool for about five minutes on the baking tray before transferring to a cooling rack. And there you have it! Delicious egg-free, dairy-free and gluten-free cookies! They taste so good, and are definitely very more-ish. I hope you enjoy them, let me know what you think!
